Toorak Residence plays on the proportions of the existing house, using the sloping
site topography and principle of expansion and contraction to create narrow, low, wide,
tall, light and dark spaces to great effect.
At the end of the generous existing hallway, open stair treads lead up a half flight of
steps to an angled ceiling retreat. While turning right off the landing, takes you down
multiple mini flights of stairs between the laundry landing, main bathroom landing and
down to the main living space. The ultra-matt Fenix black kitchen sits under a lower
curved ceiling that lifts to the North facing living area.
The Master Bedroom located at the rear of the existing dwelling utilizes space to the
boundary for an ensuite and robe, stepping down through a new exterior wall threshold
into a skylight lit private double shower.
