This is stunning. Godsell is a master of following through, ie: sticking to the diagram. Nothing seems to get diluted by pragmatics like code/budget/deadline/physics! Next time I'm in Melbourne I want to do a Godsell tour.
 

 

The house has a protective outer skin made from oxidized steel industrial floor grating which hinge open to form brise soleil shutters. The building is raised on columns with parking and storage underneath. This building forms part of our on-going research into the evolution of an Australian architecture in the Asian region. Fragments of the outback homestead – the sunroom, the breezeway, the sleep-out are re-organised into an abstract verandah which shelters and protects the occupants while enhancing the fluidity of the spaces and their loosely defined nature. ‘Inside’ and ‘outside’ are deliberately ambiguous. The external environment is filtered through a series of layers so that harsh extremes are tempered and the occupants are held and nurtured by the building.
