Project Nymph Unifies The Concepts of Living In a Garden and Gathering Under a Roof

by in Architecture

Project Nymph by Zen Architects is the materialization of the concepts of living in a garden and gathering under a roof. It represents the renovation and extension of a single fronted terrace house located in the Botanic Gardens precinct of inner Melbourne.

The new kitchen and the open dining area are located at the end of the original terrace of the dwelling and open out to the full width of the site with slate paving and full height north facing glazing.

The extension consists of a large timber pergola with roof and seasonal shadings over the internal and external areas. It connects the paved garden with the kitchen and dining area as one large courtyard space.

Other scale rooms have been added at the rear of the site, including wet areas, a lounge room and a first-floor principal bedroom with ensuite and adjoining terrace. 

The Nymphe house differentiates itself through the natural materials used inside and out, bringing the qualities of the nearby gardens into the living areas of the house.
