Habitus Townhomes by DKO Architecture

Habitus is a 25-townhouse development by DKO Architecture. Designed for professionals and young families, Habitus features crafted architecture and interiors with Sphera fixtures turning the spotlight on the beautiful materiality.

Habitus immerses professionals and young families in Melbourne’s inner-city lifestyle. Located in South Melbourne, the collection of townhomes is inspired by the area’s volcanic origin and heritage of Victorian terraces.

Spanning five storeys, the interiors offer ample space for socialising and entertaining, while also providing spaces for family life, privacy and a sense of retreat. The verticality of the architecture brings abundant natural light into each room, with fluted glass panes diffusing the light for privacy in the bathroom and kitchen.

The palette of natural and tactile materials, such as stone, warm timber and brushed gunmetal, reference the site’s past. The palette makes an impact in the kitchen and bathrooms, where the intricate mottled grey veining of the monolithic stone slabs is put under the spotlight – Sphera’s Okki Single and Double downlights.

The Okki downlights are sleek and discreet with an LED module set deep within recessed fitting. An internal black baffle provides low-glare lighting for maximum visual comfort, and the adjustable fixture provides flexibility for directing the light source.

Okki Single and Double downlights frame the kitchen island to provide light over the bench and cooktop. Okki Single downlights illuminate the bathroom vanity in the main bathroom. It’s a luxurious space for to relax and retreat, with a natural stone feature wall bringing a calm and elegant atmosphere and aesthetic.

Habitus Townhomes also feature Mattia, Muro, Profilo, Castro and Mira lighting throughout.
