Elwood Townhouse by Inform Design

The Elwood Townhouse project is a modern home that stands out in its beachside suburb with its unique dark exterior. Located in the Elwood suburb of Melbourne, it was designed by InForm Designa studio we’ve already featured through their Blairgowrie 2 Pavilion project.
The layout of the Elwood Townhouse is focused around a glazed central courtyard on the ground floor that is surrounded by a study room, the kitchen and the living areas.

A concrete party wall extends the entire length of the townhouse, separating it from its neighbour (it is one in a row of three) and visually connecting the front entry to the rear courtyard garden.

On the ground floor the study, kitchen and living areas flow around a glazed central courtyard, which with an adjacent crafted timber stair provides a central light source and focus to the long lineal space.

A small den provides a quiet retreat and addresses the front deck and garden. The upper floor includes two luxuriously appointed bedrooms and a yoga studio, Yoga Lane, sits above the carport beyond the rear courtyard.

A long black timber balustrade off the front bedrooms hovers over the entry porches of all three townhouses and forms a unifying element for the building. It is capped with a steel framed pergola that once vine covered will soften the architecture and relate it to the leafy tree lined streetscape.
