A balance of large-scale living, topography and landscape is where architects Robin Boyd, Anatol Kagan, McGlashan Everist and Peter McIntyre push the architectural boundaries. Kew House by March Studio sits comfortably behind a timber screened façade amongst its neighbours in Melbourne’s Studley Park. The architects have pushed the landscape boundaries to create a modern home that captures and reflects the owner’s personality throughout the bold build.
The sloping terrain and unconventional topography of the home creates a perfect balance for indoor and outdoor living. The home perfectly aligns the native tree line scape and references modernist design principles. The home captures an abundance of natural sunlight throughout the blackened timber screens connecting living and built elements.
The timber screens were stained with AQUAOIL The stains beautifully enhance and enrich the home while protecting the timber from swelling, shrinking, cracking, and splintering. AQUAOIL was the ideal choice to protect this tree lined home from water, mildew, and the suns UV rays.
