The old and the new sections of the St Kilda West Residence have their own distinct identities which shine independently, yet provide a sense of dynamism when the house is read as a whole. Working with a client keen to explore the way shape and form can funnel light and airflow through a residential space, the project is a playful solution to the rigours of this elongated site, with unique access.
