Located in Frankston South, Victoria, Australia, when Mihaly Slocombe Architects were approached to renovate Chamfer House, it came with the condition of maintaining the wooden structure of the stunning modernist cabin. Reconfiguring the living and sleeping areas to better connect with the garden, Mihaly Slocombe built around the house’s exploded formation with glass to create light and space, and concrete for character and support. With a swimming pool on the terrace and modern additions for a young family, Chamfer House has maintained its romanticism of old while receiving the update it required to be a functional modern home.
