The Chamfer House returns to the post and beam residence designed by Kevin Borland in 1977 and this time done by the Mihaly Slocombe Architect. It can be found within the Oliver’s Hill garden and overlooks the Port Phillip Bay. The timber structure and the ceilings were protected while updating the home to suit a young family.
The changes can be seen in every room but the prime character of the home is retained. The bedrooms and the living areas were reconfigured so as to establish a better connection with the garden. It also has a faceted balcony that frame the view from the master’s bedroom and repetitious triangular motifs can also be observed together with the customized joinery of hardware.
Mihaly Slocombe Architects are known for creating timeless and truly memorable structures that render clients only the best in modern architecture.
