Port Melbourne, Victoria
Rob Mills Architecture
This property is located on a tight site in Port Melbourne. The garden includes a series of smaller peripheral outdoor spaces designed to provide a verdant outlook whilst being practical for a young inner-city family. A dark tiled lap pool doubles as a reflective water feature that wraps around the contemporary architectural addition.
An outdoor fireplace extends the use of the garden through the milder months. A pergola draped in a deciduous vine, sits above the fireplace and provides relief from the summer sun.
