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?

3) What was the solution? 

Not attempting to hide the big, bold and brave contemporary architectural form.

EPL: Sheffield up to fifth after win over West Ham

first_imgRelatedPosts EPL: Gunners gun for West Ham scalp Arsenal reject £3m bid for Balogun EPL: Newcastle hammer West Ham away Oli McBurnie’s second-half goal earned Sheffield United a 1-0 home victory over West Ham United to move them up to fifth place in the Premier League on Friday. After a dismal opening period, the hosts were far livelier after the break and McBurnie tapped home after a mix-up between West Ham keeper, David Martin, and defender Fabian Balbuena. West Ham had a stoppage-time equaliser from Robert Snodgrass ruled out, however, after a VAR check harshly ruled that Declan Rice had handled the ball in the build-up. Chris Wilder’s side should have increased their lead but had to survive some anxious moments as West Ham’s Sebastien Haller had a goal ruled out for offside. Goalkeeper Dean Henderson also made a couple of sharp saves before the dramatic VAR intervention. Sheffield United moved up three places into fifth with 32 points from 22 games, four points behind fourth-placed Chelsea. It was a first loss for West Ham since David Moyes returned for a second stint in charge after Manuel Pellegrini was sacked on December 28 following defeat by Leicester City. They remain in trouble in 16th place, two points above the bottom three. Reuters/NAN.Tags: Chris WIlderDavid MoyesEPLOli McBurnieSheffield UnitedWest Ham Unitedlast_img read more
