House of the Month // Pleysier Perkins

Elsternwick 2 by Pleysier Perkins

This month’s House of the Month is a conceptually well rounded alteration and addition that results in a neatly arranged conglomeration of well thought-out, readily communicating interior and exterior spaces. The appeal of this project lies in the clarity and focus of the planning, which places great emphasis on enhancing site lines and creating multiple indoor and outdoor rooms that act as new vistas seen from various vantage points throughout the house.

The contemporary rear addition is delicately softened by the considered integration of greenery as a distinct and essential architectural element. Everywhere one looks, this house delivers soul-warming glimpses of greenery that juxtaposes the sleek lines of the addition in a way that makes both the architecture and the garden make inherent sense.

Pleysier Perkins’ clutter-free, humble approach to modernising this once lovely, albeit dark heritage home has delivered a layered, low-key solution to contemporary family life that delivers on much more than one might first expect.
