Australian studio Matt Gibson Architecture + Design has designed the Shakin Stevens House in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
The architects have transformed the existing Victorian terrace house into a 2 story contemporary home. ‘Shakin Stevens’ is not only about a coloured front door but the experience of what’s beyond it. The client requested a predominantly white interior with a feature highlight colour. Green became an obvious choice, working in combination with the proximity of the garden. The green spaces within and beyond the site became the focus with the white cubes acting as lens for these events – effectively assisting in bringing the green inside and dissolving barriers of enclosure. In this way interior, exterior, landscape & old and new – through colour – all inform each other with equal importance.
