Kew East House designed by Jost Architects, a contemporary house in suburban of Kew East, whilst capitalising on its unique, native settings. Actually, this home is renovated to include a granny flat for the parents and strengthen its connection to surrounding green spaces. Hence, to achieve these goals, they focused on finding ways to create efficient interiors that maintain a strong visual connection to the scenic park nearby.

This home includes the expanded kitchen, living areas, a self-contained unit, a multi-purpose basement, generous spaces. So, it is suitable for the multi-generational family to gather together. Besides, it takes full advantage of its sweeping vistas and steep topography – a 4.5-metre drop across the site. Certainly, this home is truly dream house with wonderful living room ideas; dining room idea; kitchen idea; bedroom idea; bathroom idea; outdoor living idea; and other great ideas.

Externally, the materials are selected for their robust and tonal. Thus, it complements the large eucalyptus trees enveloping the site.

Text by the Architects: Looking to the future, the clients required a house capable of a multi-generational family dynamic including their teenage children, Timba the dog and older parents who frequently visit from overseas but will eventually join them permanently.
