Star pav­il­ion

Australian House & Garden - - TOP 50 ROOMS - Ge­off Chal­lis Venn Ar­chi­tects, South Mel­bourne, Vic­to­ria; 0402 339 485 or ven­nar­chi­

34Part of a three-storey new build in bay­side Mel­bourne, this din­ing room has a di­rect con­nec­tion to the kitchen and liv­ing ar­eas, as well as to an ex­pan­sive north-fac­ing gar­den. Ar­chi­tect Ge­off Chal­lis ran with the in­door/out­door fo­cus via a pav­il­ion con­cept, with large open­ings on two sides. While the space feels airy, helped by lav­ish sheer cur­tains that seem to move even with­out a breeze, it’s still warm, cour­tesy of light oak sur­faces and dark, weighty pieces of fur­ni­ture. Strong black-steel frames de­fine each of the door open­ings and help draw the eye out­side, as does the blue­stone floor­ing, which ex­tends to the out­door zone.
