Today’s project is the aptly titled ‘Cloud House’ by McBride Charles Ryan (MCR). The Cloud House was built in 2012 as part of an addition and renovation of an Edwardian house in Fitzroy North, Victoria. Whilst the street façade was restored in respect of the character of the area and the buildings heritage, this classical home transforms through a new disintegrated red-coloured kitchen which acts as a link to a new living area built in the form of a cloud. According to MCR, the cloud form conforms to all setback regulations without appearing determined by them. As impressive as the Cloud façade is, the design also allows for a dramatic timber interior where walls merge seamlessly with the floor and ceiling, without undermining the practicality of the living space.
What are your thoughts on the Cloud House by MCR? We’d love to hear your feedback. Please feel free to share if you’re as impressed as we are! #BuiltFormFriday
