Blurred House by BiLD Architecture

View all 11 Photos

Welcome to Blurred House, a humble abode located on a residential street in Melbourne, Australia. Its unassuming, typical street elevation along with its white picket fence hardly gives away any hint, save for a peeking strip of a clerestory window, about the surprise and transformation that BiLD Architecture has brought to the rest of the house. The project is the first in a series of typographic studies involving the Australian suburban taxonomy. Large planes created by sloping roofs and hallway angles define the use of various program spaces, slowing transitioning from spacious atrium of a living room to a more private lounge area and bedroom on the second floor. A split and offset window caps the section of the house, with roof and wall extending past the glazing to create a creatively framed view of the patio and pool. A wireframe contour diagram cutting the residence on its east-west axis reveals two interlocking volumes of space; one is easily read as the more contemporary addition to the original 1930s house, and its presence is highlighted by the space’s white envelope that gently hugs the existing skeleton.
