London, Dubai and Melbourne-based architectural practice Artillery have completed the South Yarra Pool House project. The contemporary property with an outdoor pool can be be found in Melbourne, Australia.

According to the architects: “The shape of the contemporary property stems from historic beginnings whilst being carefully adapted with discrete folds creating subtle shadows. The structure was constructed from steel, with steel framed doors. Zinc cladding covers the exterior whilst matching the extension of the main house.

“Doors were designed to fully open, allowing for an easy transition between the interior and exterior.

“The contemporary Australian property is positioned under an existing Elm tree, making use of natural shading. In addition, a skeletal pergola is slowly being enveloped by a creeper, which will fill the voids with greenery creating more natural shading.

“Furthermore, Artillery was appointed on the interior of the main house (comprising of the original house and a new extension designed by Jackson Clements Burrows. The owner’s and designer’s love of timber is the hero of this space.

“The most enjoyable part of the interior design process was working with the owners, who radiate design passion and knowledge.
Their collection of extraordinary furniture and art accumulated during their travels abroad and living stint in New York fill the variety of spaces within the dwellings.  These pieces make the space feel lived in and loved.”
