The Space

Designed to meet the needs of a young family, Brooke is a bright and welcoming home that seamlessly connects with the garden through a carefully chosen interior palette.

“The design is a response to the desire for internal living spaces filled with natural light and unified with the garden, and the more private spaces to feel introverted and sheltered”

Brooke is a home located in the heart of Clifton Hill on Wurundjeri country, catering to the needs of a young family through a renovation and expansion of the original heritage building. The design focuses on incorporating natural light into the living spaces, seamlessly blending the interior with the surrounding garden, whilst also providing a sense of seclusion and protection in the private spaces.

The home was designed by Ola Architecture Studio, a Melbourne-based architecture practice ‘passionate about crafting warm and inviting spaces that connect and contribute positively to environments’. Ola prides themselves on delivering imaginative and successful solutions to a diverse range of projects, possessing an extensive portfolio consisting of bespoke single residences, large scale multi-residential developments, intricate bar and restaurant fit outs and complex institutional works.

Incorporating a seamless blend between the garden and the internal living spaces, the design features robust materials like concrete flooring, benchtops and tiles, paired with GoodWood timber cabinetry and window frames, raw brass tapware and thoughtfully selected furniture and homewares that add to the overall warmth to create a beautifully inviting living space.

Choosing a timber like GoodWood Victorian ash and Tasmanian Oak presents a significant advantage as it can be applied across various applications. With a wide range of profiles available for staircases, furniture and joinery, kitchen cabinetry and veneers, flooring, windows and doors, lining and external cladding, designers can achieve a cohesive and consistent flow of timber throughout a space.

“We used [GoodWood] Victorian Ash because we like to use local materials when possible, and the light warm colour, and even grain was perfect for the subdued and restrained material palette. Another reason is the specified GoodWood timber from ASH has Responsible Wood and PEFC certification”
