The Naked Architect: Molecule Studio, S2 E5
Project: Triangle House
Architect: Molecule Studio
Session topic: Construction
Episode Length: 17 mins
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.
Molecule Studio is a holistic architecture and interior design practice formed in the spirit of collaboration, curiosity and creativity. Based in Melbourne since 2010, their designs form a strong connection between architecture, interiors and landscape.
The Naked Architect is an initiative of Open House Melbourne, with support from the Architects Registration Board of Victoria, and in association with ArchiTeam. The second series was launched in 2018 as part of the year-round program of Open House.
