The Palms

  • Location: Brighton East
  • Completed: 2021

The clients’ love of mid-century architecture coupled with the existing palm trees that line the nature strip of the property created a clear design direction for The Palms.

The brief called for a family home for our clients and their teenage children that provided a sense of fun, plenty of light and generous spaces for entertaining.

With a focus on pattern and form, the material palette for this project is clean and simple.  A timber garage door provides contrast to the all-white exterior, with textural variations derived from painted bricks, steel and render.

The white stack bond brick fence sets the aesthetic tone from the street facade, an appropriate backdrop to the row of palm trees that greets visitors on arrival and suggests a holiday feeling within the home beyond.
Carrying the textural theme into the interior, pops of white brick serve to unify indoor and outdoor palettes, while external venetians on the upper level provide privacy, solar protection, and further textural intrigue.
