VISION 47 CONTENTS 03 CLOSE ENCOUNTERS Ivanhoe Residence, Melbourne Viridian double glazed units are instrumental in the re-birth of this Baby Boomer subdivision in Ivanhoe, Melbourne. Dynamic geometry and sculptural form-making also showcase the builder/client skills. This architecture speaks of exterior vigour and interior calm with flexible, interfluent spaces. Glenn Murcutt’s praise for architecture of ‘privacy and prospect’ is reflected in a design on public view and private retreat. Architect Daniel Xuereb’s marriage of hard with soft, heavy with light, mass with void produce a specific, highly responsive, relationship to place. CLICK TO VISIT THE IVANHOE RESIDENCE
