An Open Home That Challenges Monolithic Architecture

With the intent to create a home that fosters interaction not only between family members but also with the surrounding environment and community, Austin Maynard Architects drafted up a creative three-volume structure and outfitted it with an ingenious interior layout to match. It's only half the size of its neighbors - an attempt to avoid one of the causes of urban sprawl in Melbourne, where flat ground encourages builders to create larger homes than other settings can ordinarily accommodate. The result is a relatively compact open interior layout that maintains a strong communication with its gardens and courtyards.
