Martin Rubenstein of Format Architects commissioned me to photograph this stunning Prahran property as part of his folio for his architectural business, to showcase this rebuilt Victorian beauty and the modern addition tied to the side and rear of the property.

Martin’s team has created a wonderful sense of space and light in both the older house as well as in the new addition, and the space in between. The garage addition to the front corner of this very wide property is clad in black acrylic,┬áharking to the obsidian monolith from 2001, A Space Odyssey, yet at the same time, appearing to shrink into its leafy surrounds, due to┬áthe reflections of the neighbouring houses lending an almost trompe l’oeil effect to the wing. This stunning home is a real delight!
