The Elwood House was designed by Jost Architects and displays an interesting mix of volumes, each functionally distinct. With a total living area of 430 square meters, the residence serves the needs of a family in Milton St, Elwood, Victoria, Australia. According to the architects, “the client wanted a house that was clean, distinctive and enjoyable to use without feeling like they were an object in their own home purely because it was of a contemporary design”. Visually and structurally, the residence consists of two levels, the bottom one giving the impression “that a block has been carved and hollowed revealing areas of the interior from different external views which in turn create views of the surrounding area“. The upper floor is defined by timber and acts as a shelter for some of the open areas of the house. Enjoy the photo tour below and don’t forget to give us your feedback!
