Della Torre by Andrew Maynard Architects
Della Torre is a house located in Melbourne, Australia, designed by Andrew Maynard Architects. The simple extruded form and repeated structure respond to the clients need, while offering an efficiently planned envelope to house the programmatic requirements. Sustainability is a key part of this design. The north facade is protected by a steel awning, which blocks out the summer sun while allowing the winter sun to stream in, while the operable aluminum louvres to the east facade regulates direct sunlight while also mediating privacy to the street.
