Project summary

Built on Boonwurrung & Woiwurrung country of the Kulin Nations, the Glen Iris House has been conceived as a composition of three-dimensional objects which extend throughout the interior and exterior of the building

A contrasting palette of raw and finished materials accentuate the resultant forms and create a sense of permanence and solidity. The house is composed of three pavilions which step down along the contours of the long rectangular site; a barn-like structure forms the main living space in the centre of the property and is bookended by brick clad forms which contain bedrooms at the front and a car workshop at the rear. Glazed links connect the pavilions, accentuating their material and formal differences and contributing to a sense of journey as one moves through the site.
