Trojan House, Australia – Jackson Clements Burrows Architects
The success of this project lies in the close attention to material detail from Jackson Clements Burrows Architects. Through the extensive recladding and redesign of this modest family home, they have created a residential space that not only visibly stands out, but commands the local architectural landscape.
The additional architecture is very bold, the cantilevered extension adding real dynamism to the property.
“This alterations and additions project is about a house that engages with childhood in a playful way, that reconciles the programmatic requirements of a growing family with an unexpected sculptural response. The client liked the notion of a Trojan house as a metaphor for the chaos of family life that occurred inside before the children were unleashed in the back garden on the unsuspecting residents of the neighbouring flats, trying to enjoy their Sunday morning sleep-in”, Jackson Clements Burrows Architects
