Chamfer House by Mihaly Slocombe

From the architects: Chamfer House revisits a post and beam dwelling designed in 1977 by Kevin Borland. It sits within an established garden overlooking Port Phillip Bay.

Our design is a sensitive restoration and renovation that touches every room yet retains the house’s core personality. We unkinked the plan, pulled back a touch on the 1970s psychedelics, and reconfigured the living and sleeping areas to better connect with the garden.

We built on a juxtaposition of structural rationality and romanticism, layering a logical spatial sequence with an exploded interpretation of the chamfer. A device used regularly by Borland, our renovation develops it into a three dimensional form that operates from the macro scale to the micro, from the faceted balcony soffit to the repetitive triangular motifs in our customised joinery hardware.
