Triangle House

Architect: Molecule Studio

South | R15

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 massing of the new house complements its neighbours. The front building setback enables the landscape to mediate the zone between footpath and façade, while the gaps in the fence palings enable a filtered dialogue with the activity on the street. The Triangle House is a thoughtful architectural response to a challenging site, creating a unique and small-footprint home for its growing family.
