Market Timbers would like to congratulate Coy & Yiontis for their stunning HOUSE 3 project in Balaclava.
The contours and lines created with our Queensland Spotted Gum timber sets off this amazing home.
It comes as little surprise that the HOUSE 3 project took top honours and Market Timbers is proud to have been apart of such a fantastic project.
Situated in a relatively intact heritage streetscape in Balaclava the project required an approach that restored the street presence of the original Victorian weatherboard, badly disfigured over time and added the spaces required by the family. The strategy was to divide the house into two discreet buildings, old and new, separated by a large central courtyard and reconnected by a glazed link. The courtyard with its pool, gives the new building its northern aspect and is conceived as an extension of the communal spaces of the home which surround it on three sides. It also bestows the old building a formal autonomy.
