Compound House is a home that astutely reflects and celebrates its owners’ personalities and interests. Exposing the oversized steel construction is a nod to the client’s own involvement in the steel industry; a prized car collection is carefully integrated into the design, as is the client’s eclectic art collection; and a fireman’s pole is a playful alternative route to the basement. A characterful copper screen with an innovative clip system, prototyped in the March Studio workshop, shields the upper level that hovers above a landscaped terrain. In a relatively conservative street in Melbourne’s bayside, this house proudly stands out.
