frater street residence . sectional studies

our aim with this project was to avoid the stepped building forms typical in suburban melbourne due to building envelope restrictions, and in turn a two storey linear form has evolved.

the simple building form has allowed us to provide highly efficient and functional planning, as well as simplifying the complexity of construction.

the length of the building captures northern light, while the interactive core of the house, the kitchen, dining and living spaces, has a strong double-sided connection to the landscape.
