Eagle House is a new, 3 bedroom plus studio family home designed for an artist, a banker, and their 2 children, and is located in one of Melbourne’s most prestigious suburbs, South Yarra. This home represents the epitome of elegance, minimalism, and functionalism. While it’s a concrete monolith, like many Rara houses, this one is accented with gentle curves and angles to soften its interaction with the street and its neighbours. The simplicity of the exterior materials, carries on internally, with a very sober finish palette, leaving space for the home to adapt timelessly as fashion trends change. The site is less than 180sqm, leaving little space to waste. The combined ground and first floors are 210 sqm, so the Rara team had to flex some muscle when it came to optimising zones, traffic spaces, and multi-functional areas.
