Jack and Jill House

Breathe Architecture

Unfurling downward, in a series of terraced platforms and volumes, Jack and Jill House is tactically configured by its context. With a novel, stepped floor plan and robust, playful material palette this Northcote addition features unhindered sightlines allowing interaction between dining, kitchen, living and the adjoining decks. The interior environment benefits from strategic passive ventilation and solar planning, while the project as a whole presents an atypical approach to a familiar suburban setting.
