Would you Like to Live Here? :: vertical lines outside / horizontal inside...
Richly-red ironbark over-scaled posts express a very vertical line
at this newly built house at the bayside suburb of Elwood in Melbourne.
Designed by architect Nicholas Wright,
But pop inside, and the timber is now horizontal,
forming a more restful line.
And in those magical spaces in between,
which are neither inside nor outside,
but views of both,
the lines of verticality + horizontality have been manipulated
to create a delicately balanced tension between the two.
Clever things, these lines, aren't they?
