Protected from coastal conditions and open to north and south stunning views, ‘Torquay House‘ by Wolveridge Architects in Torquay, Australia, is a monolithic dwelling that evolves in a series of interconnected and robustly finished containers. Each prescribed to a rigid set of rules and the relationship and spaces between containers becoming essential to the program and to the life of the building. The robust mass of the buildings is intended to be offset by the expression of finely considered detail and proportion.
