Dream Home along the Yarra River

This bold contemporary home perches high above the Yarra River at North Warrandyte on a raised plateau nestled amongst dense native bushland.

Client Review

“Amazingly talented architect and I couldn’t recommend Alex more highly. My wife and I built our dream home along the Yarra River, North Warrandyte (30kms east of Melbourne).

A challenging project from the very beginning – planning restrictions, environmental overlays, wildfire overlays and more. Each challenge Alex managed to overcome with critical and creative design thinking (and loads of hard work). Turning the seemingly impossible into positive outcomes which would in-turn benefit the design as a whole. The result – we now have a beautiful home and life in the Victorian bushland with our two young children. It’s everything we could have dreamed of.

Thanks Alex “
