A home designed with family in mind — explore this spectacular Melbourne residence

Showcasing seamless living and entertaining areas, The Wolseley Residence is a spectacular example of a stylish and modern family home.

Open plan living allows for direct sunlight throughout the day.

The residence was designed and built by Mckimm architects who were briefed to focus on establishing well-considered areas for a family of five, while still ensuring there were ample areas for entertaining.

The indoor-outdoor flow allows for movement, while at the same time connecting each space seamlessly together.

The architects achieved both mandates through clever zoning, offering pockets of welcoming social areas, whilst maintaining a family-friendly environment.

The distinct contemporary aesthetic is achieved through the choice of interior elements, which embraces concrete as the prevailing material.

The white washed brick counter adds a touch of New York loft living.

This creates a textured environment while incorporating warmth through American oak cladding on the walls and ceilings, which successfully counteract the coolness of stone, steel and glass.

The gold island counter seamlessly blends with its sleek surroundings and unique collection of art.

The changes in materiality and ceiling heights correspond to the living area, allowing for more intimate areas to form.

The steel-framed spinning glass window is a sleek addition to this bathroom.

Intricate details are instilled by artistic finishes including the eye-catching mural by Melbourne artist Lucas Grogan, that challenges the precise and unadorned lines that this home boasts.
