Collis Street Residence

By Nathan Burkett, Landscape Architect

Awarded as the Grand Prize of the 2021 Royal Melbourne Hospital Home Lottery, the $4m Collis Street residence is a timeless example of understated luxury.

Calm, comfortable and relaxing were the key requirements of the architectural brief, achieved with ease by Webster Architecture and Interiors in their contemporary design. Dressed in a consistent colour palette of light, neutral tones, the interior spaces reflect the shifting sun’s rays in a play of light and shadows, creating warmth, comfort and a changing experience from day to night.

The ambience and openness of the breezy, light-filled family home continue effortlessly into the garden and pool area outdoors. Drawing inspiration from Anston’s existing range of colours, landscape architect Nathan Burkett requested a custom colour for the external paving, adding a bluemetal exposed aggregate to the base colour of Bone (from our Ironstone range). The resulting paver blends a light, bright aesthetic with the interesting features of an exposed aggregate finish, providing an intricate design detail that is also more forgiving from a maintenance perspective.

Created for a good cause while showcasing architectural excellence and high quality materials, the Collis Street residence, at the heart of it, does what it was intended to do best – creating a relaxed, functional family environment that will provide many years of calm and comfort.
