The Turn House is located in Melbourne and features a modern extension to an existing property that was built in 1927.The owners of the property are car enthusiasts and their pride and joy, a 1970 Ford XY, features prominently in the design thinking. Because of the layout of the original house only one garage space was available. To overcome this, a mechanical turn table was installed that allows 2 vehicles to enter the garage and then be rotated.

2) What were the challenges of the project? 

To integrate within an existing residence and structural framework.

3) What was the solution? 

Not attempting to hide the big, bold and brave contemporary architectural form. Instead, it is juxtaposed against the existing building yet softened through extensive and considered landscaping.Save this picture!© Nic GranleeseProject gallerySee allShow lessCalm Paang / Full Scale StudioSelected ProjectsUrban Cottage / CoLab ArchitectureSelected Projects Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/806155/the-turn-house-architecton Clipboard Area:  750 m² Photographs CopyHouses, Refurbishment•Melbourne, Australia Photographs:  Nic Granleese Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Projects The Turn House / ArchitectonSave this projectSaveThe Turn House / Architecton ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/806155/the-turn-house-architecton Clipboard The Turn House / Architecton Save this picture!© Nic Granleese+ 32 Share Architects: Architecton Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeArchitectonOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentMelbourneAustraliaPublished on March 01, 2017Cite: “The Turn House / Architecton” 28 Feb 2017.
