Fairbairn Road, Toorak


Project Summary
  • Privately owned.
  • North facing rear yard.
  • Classical influenced building.

Design Objectives
  • Young couple with young family wanted a two storey French style home.
  • Formal and informal living were to be on the ground floor with the bedrooms upstairs.

Project Challenges
  • One challenge was getting light into the building. Being an extremely long and narrow site with adjoining properties with high flanking walls made it challenging to get enough light in without affecting the neighbours.
  • Another challenge was to make the building large enough to meet this growing family’s needs without affecting the neighbours.

Lifestyle Outcomes
  • Living, kitchen and dining areas to face the north and link to the outside and pool.
  • Outside area for children to play or for entertaining.
  • A quiet sitting room in the front of the house ideal for reading.
  • A small office to enable parents to work from home.
