Architecture Design of Argo House

Description About The Project

Argo House designed by Megowan Architectural with uses the full extent of its compact 214sqm South Yarra site. This stylish family home has been sized to fit within its tight location by the practice. Also, overcoming a number of adversities to create a home that revolves around a central courtyard.

With difficult planning interfaces at each boundary, the home set up in a way that allowed for a backyard facing the South, in order to maximise space. Besides, the ground floor spaces and circulation built around the courtyard, which faces the North East. Doubling as the entry to the residence, the courtyard also allows for an influx of natural light to flow into the living spaces of the home.

There are four different external rooms that have been designed into the floor plan. The front garden, the central courtyard, the rear garden and a roof deck overlooking the CBD and South Yarra. In addition to this, joinery rebates, plaster reveals, skirtings, and steel framed mullions all uniformly align to create horizontal datums. All things create subtle aesthetic and formal cohesion across materials and rooms include living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.

Indeed, the detailing and proportions of the interiors are elegant, refined and animated via several strategically located skylights. Besides, dappled privacy screens and an electrically operated glazed roof hatch.

All ground floor spaces and circulation pinwheel around a central Northeast facing courtyard. It serves not only as a welcome focal point to the entry sequence of the residence. But also injects natural light deeply into the principal living spaces of this high calibre home.

The Argo House Gallery:

Text by the Architects: Located in South Yarra, Argo is a sophisticated family home that capitalised fully on every square millimetre of its compact 214 sqm inner urban site. The design and massing carefully edit and respond to difficult planning interfaces at each boundary and the organization of the home was set up to overcome the associated challenges of a South facing rear yard.
