Episode Length: 37 mins
MODO (Michael Ong Design Office) is an award winning architecture studio based in Melbourne, Australia. Their design process is driven by a strong focus on quality and the benefits of good design. A process which is grounded by thoughtful design ideas, rigour and distinctive direction. Open house located in the sought after neighbourhood of Hawthorn East, this alteration and addition to a beautiful existing brick bungalow home is designed to enrich the family’s connection with their garden. Open House is a renovation with very sensitive changes, minor ‘extension’ to the existing house with more of a focus on modifying the rear of the house to change the relationship between the old house and the garden.
The Naked Architect is an initiative of Open House Melbourne, with support from the Architects Registration Board of Victoria, and in association with ArchiTeam. The Series was launched in 2017 as part of the year-round program of Open House.
