Name: Tramway House
Designer: Vibe Design Group
Location: Melbourne, Australia
Tramway House is a minimalist home located in Melbourne, Australia, designed by Vibe Design Group. The site in which the dwelling resides offers a sense of appreciation for both the bay, and its surrounding neighborhood. The clients also wanted to temporarily accomodate their children who were nearing adulthood.
“A flexible upper story layout accommodates the immediate needs of the client’s children, with an optional isolated ‘apartment style’ space for visiting guests. The irregular shaped spaces throughout create a fluidity and functionality, which could not have been achieved with a conventional rectangular format. Furthermore, it allowed for the north facing entertaining space, with swimming pool and landscaped area, to be fully maximised. As viewed from the rear, the lower story has a lightweight feel and provides all rooms an appreciation of the swimming pool and landscaped garden.”
