TRIANGLE HOUSE

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Triangle House is a new home in Toorak, designed for a family of five. The clients’ brief requested a ‘beach house’ in an urban context with qualities including natural light, robust materials and a strong connection to the landscape. 

The architectural form is conceived as an elevated sinuous element, a timber-clad boat sitting on a rocky breakwater. The corner prow of the upper floor projects into the street, anchored by the dark recessive ground floor mass.

The Triangle House is a thoughtful architectural response to a challenging site, creating a unique and small footprint home for its growing family.
