Popular Keep House: a public vote winner

We’re delighted that our Keep House has been recognised in the media around the world.

This new house in suburban Melbourne was Dezeen’s 2022 Public Vote Winner, Urban House of the Year and has been celebrated in the press for its unmistakeably Australian aesthetic and its story of privacy and publicness, living together and apart.

Here are some of its accolades.

“The C-shaped house folds around a garden courtyard filled with plants that are native to Victoria. Verandas line the courtyard, blurring the transition between the garden and the interior and providing the house with shade.”

—Katie Last, Dezeen, September 2022

“Keep House explores how landscape design connects to the notion of privacy…”

—Bronwyn Marshal, The Local Project


“Matt and Dana, living with two teenagers and working from home, needed a forever home that would have spaces to bring everyone together but also have spaces apart. Keep House was the answer.”

—Caelan Kaluder, Habitusliving, May 2022

“Not many houses actually foster a family’s growth and help them to live better in an enduring way, but Keep House does.”

– BKK Principal Simon Knott
