Retaining the optimistic façade and the generosity of the original dwelling, Templeton has added to the simple rectilinear form while exploring the decorative possibilities of brick construction commonly found in the architecture of the Art Deco movement.

A house in a suburban landscape that is composed as a field of rooms that are in in direct dialogue with the site terrain and surrounding context. The house opens and closes, refocusing the relationship of the house with its suburban context influencing formal outcomes which alter between public and private realms.
Three Piece House is a courtyard house, designed for a couple looking to downsize and live more simply. The project places a modest, single-storey house and a studio on its site. These buildings are skewed to follow the site’s boundaries, and cluster to create privacy on this exposed corner lot.
In the seemingly remote, granite hills of this northeast Victorian farm, Templeton was commissioned to create a weekend getaway. The Matilda house is situated on the same site that our client spent his childhood and is therefore layered with sentiment.
Bulleen residence is a 440m2 new modern family home located in the lush green area of Bulleen, Victoria. The client’s brief was for a house which works with the site conditions to create a home which felt open, light filled, natural and connected to that garden.
This project involved a narrow three story side addition to a 1920s two storey brick house in leafy Bellevue Hill. The brief called for an addition that created space for a study, library and rumpus area that also provided an opportunity for internal connection/lift access from the previously separate garage.
