South Yarra Townhouse

The existing 1990s townhouse in South Yarra was quite dark, with an unsuitable layout for today’s living. For this home renovation, Winter Architecture approached it by looking at what they can take away and have a more minimalist space that felt clean, white and bright.

South Yarra townhouse is a reset, realignment and reinvigoration of a previously cumbersome 90s era townhouse. The architect’s design reflects a process of removal and consolidation. Adding carefully and beautifully, where absolutely necessary.
