Located on The Boulevard, this steep site presented exciting opportunities to Green Sheep Collective, the design taking advantage of a beautiful northern aspect, along with stunning views to trees along the Yarra River, and to the city beyond. Two east-west pavilions, linked by a central circulation core, use passive solar design principles to allow all rooms in the house to take advantage of north sun and cross ventilation, while creating private garden areas and allowing for beautiful views.

An array of dynamic spaces includes double and triple height voids, split levels, private courtyards and decks, linking bridges, rammed earth feature walls, north facing living and garden areas, and a 25-metre lap pool.

The Boulevard House steps down the site, following the natural slope of the land and enabling all spaces to receive north light and to connect with the garden, decks and pool.

Views towards the Yarra River and to the city beyond have been achieved from not only the south facing balconies and living areas, but also via internal vistas throughout the home.

A double height void at the kitchen/dining area creates a link to the open mezzanine play area, allowing for members of the family to operate within their own spaces, but to feel connected to one another. Deep window reveals in the rammed earth walls create playful spaces to sit and unwind, to engage with the architecture and its materiality, prepare a meal or to sit and enjoy the garden.

Featuring natural lighting, heating and cooling, and flexible spaces connected with one another, a large garden and views beyond, this passive solar design creates a home that will be a pleasure to live and grow in as a family for many years to come.
