Australian firm Rob Kennon Architects strengthened the home’s connection to the outdoors.

In 2013, Rob Kennon Architects overhauled a 1980s extension to an Edwardian family home that sat atop a lush hill in Kew, a suburb of Melbourne. “The previous addition didn’t have any good connections to the garden. It didn’t bring the outdoors into the building,” Kennon explains. By stepping it down with the contours of the sloped land, they established a healthier relationship with its surrounding environment while creating a sculptural work of art.
