Ashburton House | PHOOEY Architects

• May 10, 2011

Recently completed by Australian architectural practice PHOOEY Architects, this new double storey four bedroom house rests in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

All the public and private spaces have a variety of long views oriented towards the scenic parkland. Depending on the rooms location and aperture, the parkland is captured in a different light. Sunlight floods the central staircase throughout the day.

This is a five star energy efficient house with underground water-tank, solar hot water & passive solar design.

The building facade is designed to be self shading and offer its own relief from the summer sun.
