Contemporary Home Featuring Dramatic Staircase

Located in the upper class suburb Toorak, in Melbourne, Australia, this home is designed by Robert Mills Architects. Combining form and function, Verdant Avenue is elegant and stylish, the home is based on a contrast of darks and lights, with sleek lines and bright surfaces. The most captivating element of this contemporary home is the spiral staircase linking the ground floor to the first and second levels that provides a striking central sculpture.

Dispelling the myth that sustainable architecture means sacrificing glamour and luxury, Verdant Avenue minimises its footprint on the land by embracing its external landscape, whilst still celebrating a love for opulent detailing.
