St Kilda House is a project of the complete revival of a severely dilapidated 1850’s cottage on death’s door completed by Jost Architects. The brief is to design some rooms and areas on a limited site size of 238m². The result is a highly contemporary space with enduring and classic features.
The project brief calls for an outdoor area, walk-in robe, ensuite, three bedrooms, walk-in pantry & laundry, bathroom, rumpus room, kitchen, dining, and an open plan living. These rooms are designed on a limited size of 238 m². This aim is accomplished by building “the back yard” in a “U” shape, facing north, and also providing natural light.
The finishes and materials for the house selected to be maintenance-free and hard-wearing. This way to endure young children’s enthusiastic creativity and remaining sympathetic to adult sensibilities. The objective to create a highly contemporary space with classic and enduring features.
The interior of this house is modern and elegant where white surfaces meet some different materials like concrete and wood. In order to create a balanced appearance, the selected furniture comes in wood. The open plan for the house rooms allows the clients to have good air circulation and a brighter atmosphere during the days.
