Compound House



March Studio

From March Studio:

While our Compound House is bound by concrete on three sides it does not present itself to the street as a fortress. Instead, the house is set back, offering an uninterrupted sloping field of native grasses to the streetscape. A copper screened upper floor allows obscured views of figured shadows within, and an angled garage door, eludes to being half open. When open, the door reveals uninterrupted views deep into the block, momentarily offering a tantalising view of the entire site and challenging the notion of the ‘back yard’ and private open space.
