Pitched Roof Regulations Resulting in a Triangular Architecture
The Pitched Roof House is a fantastic contemporary residence, designed by Chenchow Little Architects. The house designed to a series of strict regulations and need from the client who wants to have a private home that not only respect the strict rules, but also offers views of the surroundings and comfort in a busy urban landscape. Here is more description from the architects: “Unlike a traditional pitched roof, the triangles not only pitch up, but also invert to form a faceted roof plane. The triangular geometry of the roof is continued down onto the facades of the house, and became the basis for articulating openings.The variability of the triangular geometry gave us the freedom to push and pull the building form as required to suit the brief of the client, the local town planning codes, the scale of the neighboring roofs, and the requirement for solar access to the living rooms.The living rooms are located on the top floor to take advantage of the sculptural roof plane, the views across Sydney harbor, and sunlight. Bedrooms are located on the lower levels were outlook and solar access are compromised by neighboring houses.” This is the result of extraordinary creativity of architects in designing a home that respects the strict regulations and meet the specific needs of clients.
