Swanston Street Residence

New Build Residence in Templestowe Lower.

Designed by Jake Barrow for Luxury Living Melbourne

Completed 2020.

A sophisticated, fully customised family focused home sculpted into a challenging corner block. Capitalising on a difficult gradient the design cuts into the slope, creating a luxurious semi-basement and elevating the living spaces to unlock the land to the upper level and creating an open plan, pool focused courtyard with free flowing indoor/outdoor alfresco.  

The modern black brick lower facade frames the home and allows it to nestle into the block, incorporating the pool. The cool grey, upper facade is given a timeless elegance through matte black detailing. The home centers upon an impressive, light filled, double height entry space.

Client Testimonial...

" Jake designed the architecture and interior of our amazing new home. He listened to all of our needs and wants, and designed a stunning but warm and practical home. 

Jake was always a pleasure to work with. He provided options and solutions for challenges that arose and he helped  instill confidence in the decisions we made. 

He answered all of our queries in a timely manner, and was

available whenever we needed him. 

Jake was very professional but also approachable and personable.

Without him the design and build may have been more stressful and less organised.

 It was a real pleasure to work with him. "
