House of the Week 006: Tattoo House

The Tattoo House, designed by Maynard Architects is a simple and boxy extension to an existing 3 bedroom house in Melbourne, Australia. The tight project budget shaped many of the design decisions from the kitchen bench that becomes part of the stair to the use of stickers on the rear façade to provide screening - required by council to reflect heat and glare. The graphic of the screen is composed of trees that dually softens the impact of adding a modern structure to a traditional neighbourhood both at day and night.

Andrew Maynard is amazing. He has it all.

I bet this comment was from the same Andrew Maynard. I gotta say it's a pretty clever design, that's what architecture is about.
