Located on a leafy established street in the inner Melbourne suburb of Malvern, two new controlled and elegant townhouses stand rigidly side by side without giving away some of the more softer elements that can be found within.

Located in the inner suburb of Brighton East, 11 km south-east from Melbourne’s central business district, the H.I.V.E. (Hybridized Interlocking Vertical Environments) x Five is sited behind an existing façade on a tight 220m2 site with constraints on the north and south of boundary wall construction.
The Two Angle house presents to the street as a modest single family home in scale with many of the older post war homes which exist in the area. It is only upon entry that the true scale of the house is revealed.
