The Minimalist Ruxton Rise Residence by studiofour

Ruxton Rise Residence is a minimalist home located in Melbourne, Australia, designed by studiofour. The home is based on the client’s three most important life values: family, health and integrity. The home goes beyond a physical structure, but becomes symbolic of the family’s beliefs.

The architects’ response was to focus on the experience versus creating a visual statement. As such, their approach was a contemporary take on the  Beaumaris mid-century modern home. By reflecting inward, the internal courtyard garden is treated as an extra room within the house.

The floor plan reflects the client’s focus on family by designing a space conducive of community and intimacy. With an emphasis on communal spaces, the interior encourages the fostering of relationships, both within the family and with friends.
