Check out the angles on this house! Located in Sydney, Australia, the Pitched Roof House was designed by architecture studio Chenchow Little. This house came about due to a rather strict building ordinance code requiring all new houses to have pitched roofs. The architects followed this rule but added their own, unique flare to the design.
The triangles forming the roof pitch up but then invert onto themselves to form a faceted roof plane. The design of the roof is then carried on into the facades, creating articulated opening for entrance areas. The house not only satisfies the building codes ordinance, it fulfills the needs of the owner. The client wanted excellent view of the surrounding area and for natural light to fill the living rooms. This was achieved by using large glass windows and putting the living room on the top floor, which took full advantage of the sculpted roof.
