Ivanhoe
House

Located on one of Melbourne’s best known suburban streets, The Boulevard, this new family home nestles carefully into the sloping landscape.

Proudly built by Guild.

Iconic in Ivanhoe

Designed by Techné Architects

A dramatic double height entry is an impressive welcome to the Ivanhoe House. The two-storey home features five split levels, five bedrooms and multiple living areas including parents retreats and zones for children. The entrance hall lies in the centre of the house and acts as a ‘spine’ from which the living spaces branch off.

Full-height, four-metre high windows flood the north facing rooms with light. Materiality consisted of grey tundra marble benchtops, bluestone pavers and metal cladding amongst others, along with detailed joinery throughout. Our biggest challenge? Working on a sloping block and maintaining the existing landscaping around the site.

Signature materials included bluestone pavers and metal cladding for the entrance way, grey tundra marble benchtops, custom metalwork and extensive hardwood flooring.
