From Jackson Clements Burrows Architects, the Trojan House takes inspiration from the famous war story of the Trojan horse, and perhaps the Tardis? As they say, "it's bigger on the inside." The design cleverly works around residential development restrictions and allows the lucky family to maximize their yard space. And, like the fabled Trojan horse, the house's seamless skin allows for lots of privacy and mystery about what goes on indoors.
The design also incorporates a rain screen which utilizes a passive thermal response by shading the house during the summer and insulating the house in the winter. The house is equipped with a grey water system to allow for sustainable solutions to gardening and potential pool restoration.
The seamless design incorporates timber shutters that operate as openings where needed.
