Vibe Design Group’s Kelso project is a family home nestled amongst a heritage area within a wider industrial setting, with proximity to the iconic Nylex Clock near Richmond. Thoughtful integration of the light well and outdoors, with the frequented living areas, achieve a vast sense of space. Uneven bluestone alludes to the cobbled Melbourne laneways while the express joint cladding and aluminium fins connect the house to it’s semi-industrial surrounds. Both the street fronted master bedroom and rear outdoor spaces admire the scale of the Nylex Clock & Silos, while the clients young son sees the lights of the MCG from the rear bedroom.
An entering guest is immediately met with a great open space flanked by a long line veneer wall – without knowledge of it’s integrated access points to storage spaces and other rooms. Standing in the lounge and dining area a highlight window frames a letterbox view back to the Nylex Clock & Silos, setting the tone for the journey to come.
