Pitched Roof House - a modern architectural masterpiece from the specialists from the Australian studio Chenchow Little Architects, designed in accordance with a number of strict rules set by the client, as well as the norms of urban Sydney (Australia).
Uniqueness of the house, necessary for the customer, however, had to respect the strict rules of the area’s traditional construction – pitched roof and open views of the cityscape.
The new building not only had to provide view of the city for dwellers, but not to close the view from the windows of adjacent existing buildings.
Together with a modern interpretation of traditional pitched roof, the architects managed to create a fantastic living environment. The triangular geometry of the roof is an extension to the facades and elements of interior space, creating an open and non-standard layout for living and recreation.
Thus, the authors of the project took into account local building codes, customer requirements and the need for housing in a large number of natural daylight.
In order to maximize the benefits of sculptured surfaces of roofs, providing views of Sydney Harbour and the direct entrance of sun lounge was located on the upper level of the building.
Bedrooms also have taken a non-traditional lower levels, which was done for the purpose of shading and privacy of private life of the inhabitants of ultra-modern house.
Pitched Roof House is a prime example of how creative and innovative can be the direction of modern urban development, subject to established standards and respect for the historical building of the metropolis.
