SYNOPSIS

Australian architectural practice Wood Marsh Architecture, in collaboration with interior designer Kendra Pinkus, have designed 30 Esplanade, a collection of 24 contemporary townhouses in Brighton, an affluent beach-side suburb of Melbourne,  Australia.

The townhouses, which have two variations based on orientation (Southern and Northern) feature an open floor plan that connects the living, dining and kitchen areas. The living room has a large wall of windows that lead out to a private outdoor space with a green wall. An oak timber ceiling helps create a focal point that is the kitchen. Most notable would be the unique facade of the Southern residence that feature curved, architectural screens made from pacific teak.

THE SOUTH RESIDENCES WHICH FEATURE A PRIVATE GARAGE AND TEAK-CLAD ENTRY WAY AS WELL AS A CURVED ARCHITECTURAL SCREEN AND FLUTED CONCRETE WALL ON THE BLIND SIDE.
THE NORTH RESIDENCES WHICH ALSO FEATURE A PRIVATE GARAGE AND TEAK-CLAD ENTRY WAY.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

As seen on Contemporist,

“Our intention was to reinterpret the traditional Victorian terraces that line many of Brighton’s streets and reappropriate this ideal for a contemporary lifestyle, the building’s strong skin is naturalised by the timber fringing; we consider this to be a modern take on the typical wrought iron latticework you would see in period homes. “Drawing inspiration from the neighbouring bay, we took the concept of coastal living and reimagined it with a depth of materiality and refinement that challenged conventional interpretations of seaside homes and stereotypical townhouses,”

– Randal Marsh, Director, Wood Marsh Architecture.
