Dominated by a vast oak tree, the alterations to a Victorian house in inner Melbourne represents the formal and visual innovation in a new vein of work by architecture firm, Kennedy Nolan.
The visually unique features stem from the client’s personality, which creates a warm and hospitable flow throughout the building and is complemented by the elegant oak tree that is “always present”. This is especially prevalent when sitting low in the living space surrounded by garden with the dappled light shining through the tree canopy. A courtyard animates both the front and the rear of the house, providing further opportunities to embrace the mature oak - naming the project the ‘Oak House’ was a natural choice for Kennedy Nolan.
