Multi-award winning Melbourne-based practice Architecture Architecture has designed a small scale house called Dark Horse. Located in Brunswick, an inner-city suburb of Melbourne, Australia, the house has a total floor area of 107m² (1,152ft²).
In a row of workers’ cottages, there is one Dark Horse – a handsome creature. The stepped parapet, centred window, side-lined door and entrance awning are carried with the familiar, unassuming composure of the others. Yet here the materials, stark in their composition, have a distinctly 21st century character, hinting at the contemporary home within.
Indeed, the palette of black, white and grey is carried throughout the house, lending tonal variation and spatial depth to an otherwise diminutive site. The play of tones establishes a subtle field of spaces that expand and contract, creating moments of generosity and intimacy.
