East Fremantle | Kensington Design BUILDING DESIGNERS
Kensington Design has created a striking home
that fits its East Fremantle surrounds, in a cubic
style that echoes through the window design and
planes of the garden.
The big timber and aluminium frames of
the elevated building’s windows enable the
sun to warm the rooms throughout winter,
and enhance the home’s visual appeal on the
Adding to the allure is the jarrah joinery to the
front elevation, and in situ limestone cement paving
to the front of the home. The forecourt emanates an
inviting feeling to guests and passersby.
The home, designed to be highly adaptable to
the wants and needs of the family, is carefully
zoned to allow for the separation of living and
Multi-purpose rooms are located on the
undercroft level and look out to the lower
courtyard. Above this, the open kitchen overlooks
the living and dining rooms while seamlessly
flowing backwards into a scullery and then into
an extended galley-style laundry.
This white, flat-roofed home has been
designed to maximise ocean views while
keeping within the restrictive height covenant.
Discreet undercroft parking ensures that the
garage does not dominate the house, while the
north-facing living courtyard is subsequently
protected from unwanted eyes by the extended
eastern wing of the elevated home.
The alfresco situated next to the courtyard
is well sheltered, providing the perfect outdoor
entertaining area all season round.
