Kataland Display Home

The house was to have an open, contemporary, modular style layout; take advantage of the northern aspect; and use tones and colours which blended with environment.

Louis Chiodo Architects deals with a wide variety of typologies. They provide a thorough service and detailed design solutions for any project with a focus on environmental sustainability.The structure had to work with the natural landscape to avoid the usual costs and excessive work related to sloping sites.

The architects rose to the challenge. The house steps up and down according to the landscape. Each level makes careful use of the area and topography; cleanly dividing the living and bedroom areas. The detailed wooden panelling in the garage and at the entrance sets the light and airy tone of the home. The large windows, wide halls and spacious layout similarly allow the sun to permeate through the house. The area out to the deck in the back and front yards invites the outside in. The consistent use of colour and wood throughout reiterates the breezy and comfortable atmosphere. Metal and wood, natural and human-made, have been paired together to create a holiday house type aesthetic rather than the typical suburban. The result is a home where someone can truly put their feet up and relax.

Bacchus Marsh and Melton Regional Hospital Maternity Renovation

Due to an increasing demand for birthing amenities in the region, the hospital needed to extend whilst usual operations continued.

The client brief outlined that the renovations had to keep the original integrity of the building, with the existing building envelope and aim to keep the aesthetic of visual heritage.

Dickie Street

Shane Cook Homes capitalised on the problematic topography to maximise the use of the land and the view. 

The Dickie Street Custom Home site provided a challenge in that the land involved a steep descent away from the street. Consequently, the majority of the house is at street level but shares the airiness and aspect of a second storey.
