Malvern Residence Two

Reminiscent of resort-style living in Palm Springs, this light-filled home with a glass pitched atrium has been extensively renovated. Originally designed by renowned Australian architect Peter McIntyre, Doherty Design Studio drew on the building’s architectural heritage crafting a contemporary version of the 1980’s, filtered through a modernist glamour lens.

Marquise Flagship store

Playfulness & sophistication, viewed through the imperfect organic-curved shop front window, entice both adult shoppers and children alike into this consciously calm, immersive retail space. The design includes a fresh take on childhood memories providing a nostalgic nod so appropriate for one of Australia’s oldest babywear businesses.

Located in Thornton in country Victoria, this comfortable, low maintenance home sits quietly within its idyllic bush setting in the Cathedral Lodge Golf Course. Cut into the hillside, the home is designed as three separate pavilions connected by glass walkways, with an orientation to maximise the natural light and frame the spectacular views of the Cathedral Ranges.

Beechworth Residence

This contemporary two-level, three-bedroom home in country Victoria was designed and built for a young Melbourne family as their weekender and holiday retreat. The solid granite form of the building is complemented by an atmospheric pitched roof with exposed rafters, and contrasted with a sophisticated mix of materials and textures. Our client’s time living in Japan informed the detailed craftsmanship and refined finishes, including hand-glazed tiles, ceramic washbasins and concrete benchtops.
