South Yarra is just one example of an inner suburb in which DX Architects practises our residential and commercial architecture. Working exclusively in Melbourne, a typical project for us involves the design and renovation of a townhouse or creating a sympathetic addition to a heritage building.
Our local experience in South Yarra combined with our time in the industry has taught us how to deal with local housing legislation and planning permissions, how to overcome space restrictions and how to establish a design that meets the expectations of our clients.
South Yarra Architecture
South Yarra is a great example of a typical suburb that we work in. A suburb filled with bars, restaurants and shopping, combined with modern, riverside apartments, multi-million dollar mansions and traditional heritage homes.
This sought after residential suburb based on the Yarra river and within close proximity to the city has seen property prices soar in recent years. Commercial offices, fine dining restaurants and shopping boutiques are established on a weekly basis on Chapel street, whilst residential buildings in the area are becoming increasingly difficult to purchase.
The median house price in South Yarra is around $1,800,000 and average rent prices are just above $670 per week (source: realestate.com.au). We have seen a large increase in residential architecture in South Yarra, with young couples and families wanting to stay in the area but improve their living space, number of bedrooms or adding a full extension to their townhouse or heritage home.
Recent Projects in South Yarra
At DX Architects, we pride ourselves on the contemporary architectural design of our recent projects, and these projects in South Yarra are some of our finest work:
Howitt Street – South Yarra
This family home restoration consisted of fully renovating the living areas, including the lounge, kitchen/dining area and the bedrooms. It was a huge architectural project combining both external modifications and interior design, but the project turned out great and we are extremely proud of the photos.

South Yarra – Renovation to Victorian heritage house
In August 2017, a town planning application was put forward to the South Yarra council to renovate a single fronted home. We produced concept designs consisting of a new, open plan living and dining area, a balcony from the master bedroom and a stylish outdoor area. We also included a skylight within the designs to increase lighting in the living areas.
As part of the concept designs, we produced 3d visualisation images to assist in the communication between the client and DX Architects.
You can view the 3d designs and read more about the project here: https://www.dxarchitects.com.au/hawthorn-house-construction-complete/
Hope Street – South Yarra
This project consisted of an addition to a semi detached heritage house with narrow site constraints which seeks to contrast the tones and materials of the existing heritage dwelling with reference to its pitched form. The design for this home has created a forever home suitable for a contemporary lifestyle whilst embracing the heritage nature of the building.
