Project Description

Ellise Residence

Located in Melbourne’s most affluent suburb this celebrity client could have chosen any architect in the world to design their Modern 6-bedroom mansion. It was therefore with great honor and pride that WOLF Architects took up the challenge to create the Toorak Residence.

Despite being a luxury home, the budget was strict and discipline was required by all parties to ensure that costs stayed on track. Further challenges involved working with a difficult 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 five cars. The main 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 client wanted a timeless home that was luxurious without feeling ostentatious. The result was an elegant understated contemporary home.
