Prahran House

This new triple storey dwelling comprises nine recycled shipping containers, supplemented with a variety of sustainable materials & features to comfortably accommodate a growing family.

Parts of the house including a separately entered habitable basement will be fitted out as the family grows and their needs change over time.

The dilapidated & small existing house will be demolished. Many existing elements (such as timber floorboards, studs & weatherboards) will be salvaged, stored & prepared for re-use.

They will be supplemented with new materials & construction off-cuts to create a dignified assemblage which will perform functional & decorative purposes including sun shading, cladding, balustrading & fencing.
