Prominent presence of St Kilda East Townhouses by Jost Architects, embrace the established aesthetic force behind contemporary building design. It also goes against modern trends towards technology, self-sufficiency, and total privacy from the outside world. Jost Architect designed this home for young family of five and parents. Also, it takes a careful look at how the family lives, and how they hope to interact with neighbors, the street, and within the building itself.

This home occupies a prominent street corner in St Kilda East, Australia. Then, it creates an imposing horizontal facade that commands attention from passersby. Besides, it offers luxurious living with high end finishes and smart amenities. Certainly, it is truly dream house combined by wonderful living room ideas; dining room idea; kitchen idea; bedroom idea; bathroom idea; outdoor living idea; and other great ideas.

A vertically oriented wood fence wraps around and tucks under at certain points along the facade. So, it provides privacy from the street, but not so much that it feels totally isolated.

The home is been sure not to turn their back on the street, and avoided this by opening up in various places. Thus, exposing the home to view, light, and natural ventilation.

The outcome is two aesthetically interesting, modestly sized and very efficient homes. Hence, it successfully draws on how the architecture responds to the site more than how the site responds to the architecture.

The interiors are clean and bright. And, they open up to a shared courtyard space via a series of corner windows and sliding glass doors. So, it creates a proper indoor/outdoor experience when fully opened.

The St Kilda East Townhouses Gallery:

Text by the Architects: The initial core aim of the St Kilda East Townhouses was as a family development generating two typical dwellings that can functionally house downsizing grandparents in one (my parents), and comfortably accommodate a young family of five in the other (myself, wife and kids). It had to be cost effective but with a good aesthetic outcome. The site being located on a corner with a dog leg in the street and a street address to the long boundary meant that the dwellings needed to run end to end, parallel to the street. This breaks from the more traditional side by side mirrored plan townhouse. It also meant that along with particular site and planning conditions, in this case, daily living is somewhat exposed to the local community.
