The Stirling House was desigend by MAC Interactive Architects, Located in Sydney, Australia. Despite having the advantage of a pocket-park to one boundary, this project presented an opportunity to revisit the terraced house typology. The kitchen has now become the central focus of a less formal contemporary house – with a cultural need to link internal and external living spaces.
The Stirling House located in Sidney Australia, also called ‘The Ark’ by local residents. This contemporary timber house was designed by MAC Interactive Architects. The detailing is contemporary in the way the cladding appears to end abruptly against the sky, whilst the windows wrap around the main edges to articulate the 3-dimensional form. To maximize the ceiling heights and achieve 3 storeys, the site was excavated – which determined the need for a concrete slab and upturns – which like most of the materials were then expressed rather than dressed.
