The creative team at InForm designed the Elwood Townhouse, a private residence located in Elwood, Australia. A steel, glass, wood, and concrete exterior creates a straightforward and highly modern look. Inside, it’s white walls and lots of light wood — just right for a home that includes a full-blown yoga studio.

“A concrete party wall extends the entire length of the townhouse, separating it from it from the neighbor’s residence,” the architects said. “The wall visually connects the front entry to the rear courtyard garden.”

“A small den provides a quiet retreat and addresses the front deck and garden,” the architects added.  “On the ground floor the study, kitchen and living areas flow around a glazed central courtyard”.

The social areas and the carport are located below, while the second level (up the custom timber staircase) accommodates two bedrooms and the yoga studio. The yoga studio isn’t just a personal exercise room, either. It’s home to Yoga Lane studio and vinyasa classes are held there four times a week.
