Artful urban living in a time of progressive densification


The Vanglo house has been designed as a truly urban house for a compact inner city infill site. As a form of urban art, the white creased body is detailed with concrete fibre panel facade to unify its form, while blurring typical expressions of floor levels into an abstraction. The roof has been designed like an inverted boat hull, constructed with wooden ribs that free span the 17’ width of the building. The design approach provides essential adaptability and flexibility to changing living conditions. The urban response of the design also engages social aspects of urban living providing a contemporary front porch and large stoop like entry stair. The Vanglo house was designed to meet high sustainability standards. The previous house structure has been carefully deconstructed and largely recycled, the new house has a high performance building envelope and is Energy Star certified.
