What happens when the concept of bookends meets architecture? The Tivoli Road house
in Melbourne Australia.
Located on an exposed corner, this building is a private residence and was built as a means of creating both visual and acoustic privacy for the residents. The locally sourced bluestone material chosen for the building has visually created a seamless construction with low production costs. Where the bluestone is used externally, timber is deployed so internally at the request of the client. The wooden cranked Blackwood stair is one of the most interesting design elements to this building, creating a modern reference to the traditional spiral staircase.b.e Architecture
