Malvern Residence III

Studio Tate in collaboration Lovell Burton Architecture

Merging playful, textural, luxurious elements, Malvern Residence III crafts an uplifting family home with strong ties to its leafy location. Fostering a sense of togetherness, it embraces the principles of Wabi Sabi – a Japanese philosophy centered around the beauty and humility of natural patina, manifesting as a sophisticated, livable home.

Upon entry, a double-height void and skylight frame long-ranging views through the home. A relaxed family room and guest suite straddle the entry hall, with a bag drop area, laundry and blush-toned powder room nestled around a sculpted stair. Beyond, a generous kitchen crafts a vibrant family hub, awash with warm palladiana floors, veined marble, powder blue cabinetry and brass accents. To the rear, a sunken lounge space creates a deep green bowl, anchored by a central, exposed brick fireplace flanked by garden views.

The upper level elegantly houses the family’s private living spaces, offering serene views of the neighboring treetops. A vibrant ‘cosy corner’ combines banquette seating with hidden toy storage, wall shelving and a carpeted area for floor games, inviting the children to read and play together. A generous main suite, combining hand-glazed tiles, quartzite stone and brass highlights is buffered by a light-filled study.
