Canny Architects completed the design for Residence Hawthorn, a contemporary project in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, especially envisioned for a family with three teenage boys. The main objective required by the owners was the existence of independent living zones for the needs of the growing family. A traditional facade was chosen in order to complement the street-scape, while the opposite facade and rooms (facing the swimming pool and backyard) are highly contemporary.

The rear of the home showcases a distinctive curved pool house and plenty of outdoor leisure opportunities: “Dual outdoor entertaining areas with canopy skylights and recessed alfresco heaters allow for continuous enjoyment throughout all seasons. All of these elements were carefully integrated and designed with the landscape“. The modern-minimalist interiors offer a large amount of natural light, being well connected to the outdoors.
