The Templestowe House is a nod to the tradition of the Italian Palazzo and Australian courtyard house, creating the constant connection between outdoor and indoor spaces.
Figr Architecture & Design
Working with Figr is an open, conversational experience. Our inclusive, friendly but focused attitude allows us to engage carefully with our clients’ desires, physical project constraints, budgets, time frames, compliance and construction processes.
Personal, committed and driven, this determined methodology gives us the scope to refine, process and create the architecture we believe in - architecture that engages all our senses. We provide broad but interconnected design services that help us accomplish visions for our clients. Combined with our experiences, knowledge and design-led thinking we create spatial experiences that engage senses on a deeper level. Figr Architecture & Design is based in Cremorne, Victoria, Australia.
Flexibility was also embedded in the brief for this project. With the idea of staying in this home for years to come, creating experiences was pivotal. The sliding glass and timber-battened screens, for example, fully retract to allow a seamless connection to the garden.
