Curve House is a renovation to a Heritage-listed Federation home (c.1905) in South Yarra. The design brief was to open-up and reconnect it to it’s lush garden setting at the rear of the property.

A beautiful grand dame of a building, our solution was to first fix the poor flow towards the rear living areas and create multiple vantage points to the garden. This was then enhanced via a careful selection of materials and details that respectfully reference the grandeur of the original home within the new spaces. Finally, the curated use of texture and colour reference the lush rear garden and successfully blur the boundaries between inside and outside.

We feel so lucky to have found Andever as we had little idea what we wanted. With their help we ended up with something so much better! All the little details they designed have taken our home to the next level.
