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,
the verticality injects a dramatic sense of movement to the exterior.

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?
