Our client for Osborne Street has a particular passion for architecture and a clear vision for his ideal family home. Mancini Made engaged B.E Architecture and worked closely with one of the founding directors, Jonathan Boucher, who led the design process for this exceptional modern home.
98 Osborne is ideally positioned, overlooking the formal greenery of Williamstown’s classical Botanic Gardens with its winding pathways leading to the beachfront Esplanade.
To successfully introduce contemporary architecture to such a prized heritage location, the primary focus was to create a design that will be relevant now and for years to come.
The challenge was to ensure the design conformed to the heritage overlay and harmonised with the historic Williamstown streetscape with homes dating back from the early 1900’s, mostly single-fronted weatherboard with pitched roofs.
The concept was conceived around a few fundamental design elements with the focal point and main feature of the home featuring a floating white concrete ceiling with expansive panels of glass, charred timber and internal Japanese gardens.
The result is a home that will remain relevant and ageless throughout its life cycle with a style and structure imbued with a true sense of timelessness.
A close collaboration was developed between client, architect and the team at Mancini Made to ensure this finely considered building is delivered exactly to plan, inside and out.
Currently under construction, we look forward to seeing our client’s passion and plan come to life. Stay tuned via our social networks.
