– MR & MRS GOW –
Formerly the home of Geelong Football Club’s longest serving President (Jack Jennings), “Jack’s Place” celebrates views across the historical Botanic Gardens and is 200m from Geelong’s Waterfront. We were asked to design a state-of-the-art home which celebrates its historical roots, with city views and respect to its neighbouring Victorian-styled residences.
Cognisant of the surrounding Victorian aesthetic the design sought to be respectful of the scale and grain of these properties while creating a striking, open and free-flowing home for the couple approaching retirement. The prominent site required careful design and sightlines to and from the adjacent botanical gardens, bay and city.
The clients were delighted with the striking and sensitive design of their home as well as with the seamless and stress-free process of working with Select Architects.
