E Toorak House
Located in Melbourne’s most affluent suburb this celebrity client could have chosen any architect in the world to design their Modern 7-bedroom mansion. It was therefore with great honor and pride that WOLF Architects took up the challenge to create their Toorak Residence.
Despite being a luxury home, this mansion design demonstrates restrain with regard to the buildings appearance. The home was to to remain timeless and retain strong resale appeal within the context of the area. Further challenges involved working with a significant slope and trying to maximise living spaces within tight building envelopes.
Over three levels the brief included multiple living spaces, gym/theater, tennis court, swimming pool with spa and a garage for several cars. The main living areas take advantage of the lush gardens and a northerly aspect. Sustainability is further enhanced with a solar farm on the roof that supply batteries in the basement.
The result is an elegant understated contemporary home that feels luxurious without being ostentatious.
