Traditional prestige meets modern day luxury in South Yarra, which, while constantly evolving, holds strong its classic charm. Here, tensions within new and old, refined and contemporary, luxurious and casual, the suburb has come not to merely resolve, but rather to incorporate them within its nuanced identity. It is from within the synergy of these nuances that Hawksburn House is born.
Drawing on the rich fabric of the community’s affluent roots and vibrant presence, the design works to both compliment the existing form of its streetscape, while simultaneously standing out. Deliberately marrying incongruous textures, the facade sculpturally plays on notions of light and dark as well as inside and out, owed to the interplay of expansive windows with metal accenting.
Through the use of fine metal elements and glazing to the upper levels, a greater level of transparency is created, whilst still maintaining a strong sense of form. These accents speak to elements of contrast witnessed throughout the entirety of the design. Showcasing motifs of linearity, vertical lines are complimented by horizontal edgings that draw a simple yet discernibly sculpted form against the otherwise natural landscape.
Robust materials have been selected for their enduring properties, with muted tones specified to add an appealing softness to the structure. This softness is continued in design elements that at once welcome light within the space, while simultaneously providing privacy.
