Architect: Molecule Studio, 2018
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 design 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 site necessitates an approach of small footprint living, adaptable spaces and overlapping functions. Holistic design principles cohesively merge the architecture, interior and landscape. Referencing its Australian context, the materials and finishes are derived from and inspired by nature. The Triangle House is a thoughtful architectural response to a challenging site, creating a unique and small footprint home for its growing family.
