Camberwell by InForm


In association with architects Pleysier Perkins, InForm have completed the design and build of a single-story home in the Melbourne suburb of Camberwell. The central location provided a unique opportunity to create a peaceful, private and secure home for a young, busy family that feels worlds away from the bustling street outside. Inspired by the clients’ affinity with mid-century architecture, the home is characterised by its minimalist yet playful palette of bagged and painted brickwork, breeze blocks, timber, brass, white painted lining boards and curved elements.

Wanting a single-story home with mid-century design elements and lots of natural light, the clients’ also required open-plan living separate to the bedrooms, and space for outdoor entertaining. A garden wall concept emerged as a solution to the brief, providing a way to close off the property from the street while creating visual intrigue. A long single-level horizontal wall becomes a backdrop to the landscaping, and breeze block screens offer subtle glimpses of what lies beyond. During the day, breeze blocks filter soft dappled light into the living room interior, making it the clients’ favourite part of the home to spend time in. At night, the screens are illuminated from the interior creating a dramatic patterned light effect on the façade.

The living spaces and bedrooms are separated by a central entrance hallway that carefully zones public and private spaces, while curved walls direct you to a generous open plan kitchen, meals and living space orientated to the north.
