We love seeing innovative, creative housing designs and built forms that challenge the status quo and make us reconsider the realms of possibility. In honour of those who continue to push the limits and exceed expectations in construction design, we have decided to share some of our personal favourites each Friday, as part of #BuiltFormFriday.
In our latest instalment of #BuiltFormFriday we take a look at the Trojan House by Jackson Clements Burrows Architects. Metaphorically speaking, the Trojan House lives up to its name in both a functional and structural sense. Situated in Hawthorn Victoria, this build took place in 2009 as an alteration an addition to an existing Edwardian house with a vision to accommodate a growing family with three children. The owners of the home liked the notion of a Trojan House as a metaphor for the chaos of family life that occurred inside, which is only revealed when the children are set free into the back yard onto unsuspecting residents of neighbouring flats.
