Bail Dwyer House

This house and garaging for a car enthusiast is built inside a former Tobin Bros’ coach house. The occupation focuses around vertical rather than horizontal movement through the space. It is composed of a series of stacked volumes, a vertical circulation spine, and two living platforms. The major internal elements are designed as individual ‘buildings’. The materials used have more in common with the city than the domestic. The city skyline is connected to various living spaces through a series of framed views.
