A contemporary expression of classic architectural principles, Clendon Residence crafts an expansive yet comfortable home with elevated garden views. Set in leafy Toorak, the home’s precise proportions of polished concrete render, glazing and dark bronze framing establish an elegant presence from the street, echoed in the home’s sophisticate interior spaces.
The home’s front façade creates a strong symmetry, with two forms split by an articulated entry door and corridor. On arrival, views are cast through the house to a stone-clad terrace and verdant garden. The home’s strong verticality is countered with deep reveals that protect the house from western sun, while discreetly masking the entry to a basement garage below.
Internally, the extensive use of natural stone and timber offers a feeling of quality and permanence, set against the tailored details of finely framed doors, aged metal accents and hand-crafted light fittings. Upstairs, operable glazing unites each room with a broad balcony, extending the expression of space.
