Narrow House Design Cleverly Adapted to Its Site in Melbourne, Australia
Challenged by the intricacies and opportunities of a small site in Melbourne, Australia. Inglis Architects came up with a clever narrow house design for project Fairbairn Road Residence. Masonry, timber and stone are the main materials employed for the exterior finishes, whether through brick perforated screens, steel cantilevers or custom timber claddings. By layering up the front elevation towards the street, the architects created depth, thus managing to powerfully distinguish the residence from its neighboring buildings.
