The Enclave house was designed by BKK Architects in Melbourne VIC.



From Architects:

The house is designed so that the spaces within and around the house will be adaptable over time to suit the changing needs of the family. The extension at the rear of the existing residence appears to have been carved from a solid block, chiselled away to cater to the planning and heritage overlays, while also drawing light back into the residence. There’s an overwhelming sense of seclusion in both the house and garden that creates a type of space that is the family’s own, a retreat from busy lives and the surrounding chaos. The fabric of the buildings operates like a protective cocoon. The differing materiality of the two levels of the extensions creates the impression that the house has been capped or that a ‘helmet’ is placed upon the exterior walls.
