Melbourne-based interior architecture firm, Christopher Elliot Design, is renowned for its unique design approach, minimalist-meets-timeless aesthetic and impeccable attention to detail — and this recently completed project also located in the Victorian capital is no exception.

Positioned idyllically atop a hill overlooking the Melbourne skyline in the picturesque suburb of Eaglemont in the city’s north-east, this new build was created to cater for a busy modern family who wanted a home that wasn’t just a sterile white box.

The home, aptly dubbed “Eaglemont House”, took two years to complete and could be best described as contemporary, minimalist and sophisticated.

Christopher Elliot Design worked with Interline Constructions to build the vast residence which is home to four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two living spaces, a gym, a study and a ground floor outdoor area with pool, plus an outdoor roof terrace.

Christopher Elliot, principal designer at the firm is the master of making minimalist design exciting. “We like the simple use of materials and how we created interest in a minimalist way — this is evident in the staircase design that showcases a sculptural form with minimal details,” he explains while admitting that his favourite thing about the completed project is final union of every design element, rather than just one particular component. “There is not one feature that is my favourite, but rather it’s the tone of the whole project cohesively tying together,” he adds.

However, according to Elliot, the exceptional result didn’t come without it’s challenges. “We faced many design challenges in the project, given it’s a small footprint but with a lot of design elements,” he explains. “One of the biggest challenges was how to treat the double height walls surrounding the living space — knowing that the living space wasn’t as large as we would have liked, it drove our decision to express the height of the space, and in turn, make it seem more expansive.

To compliment Elliot’s exquisite design, some of DOMO’s most coveted designs (think Ligne Roset’s Togo Corner Suite Set, Duresta for Matthew Williamson Rosanna Getty Strip Scatter Cushion and items from the DOMO Elements Collection, to name a few) we’re used to furnish the home as the icing on the cake.
