This unique 170sqm home is a true representation of need versus want when it comes to living space.
The thoughtfully designed triangle shaped home took into careful consideration every inch of its challenging pocket of 180sqm land to ensure no space was wasted.
From the outset, the form is immediately alluring with its uniquely shaped façade, use of interesting materials and mural by local artist Robert Jenkins embellishing the boundary wall.
The home has become somewhat of a landmark in its locale of Mount Lawley, known for its dramatic design against a character cottage backdrop.
The current inhabitants are its architect Simone Robeson and husband, but it is currently up for grabs for a lucky buyer.
The buyer can expect a design which has embraced minimal, industrial elements with a luxurious finish.
There is burnished concrete to the floors, marble in the kitchen and dining and customised steel additions.
A wealth of glass has been set to draw as much natural light in, from the waterfall window over the stairs, to the projecting steel box on the street outlook.
Into the awkward pocket of space Simone has been able to fit two bedrooms, two bathrooms, large office and room for two cars.
The home received a commendation in the 2015 WA Architecture Awards and has been featured across countless media outlets. Most recently featured on Habitus Living

Featured on ArchDaily this week; Keen Architecture's Claremont Residence with a striking facade gets some love. This was one of two projects we photographed for them that week and we got lucky with some sun at the right time. Check out the article here.
A feature timber screened balcony off the master suite punches though the steel portal frame again creating interest but also a lockable facade. The timber box has built in bi-folds which open to views of Claremont but can also be a private parents retreat. The flying roof form provides shade to the 'entertainers delight', a large open roof deck (engineered to take a future spa) which takes full advantage of river glimpses to the south, the City to the east.
David Weir's Exploding Shed house featuring on ArchitectureAU this week...
"This “energetic” one-bedroom cottage by David Weir Architects provides a place to live and a place to work, embracing its small footprint while packing punch through bold materiality and strength of form."
Great to see this beautiful home get some nice exposure out west! The West Australian and Scoop Magazine has featured the home designed by Sandy Anghie in collaboration with Matthew Crawford Architects.
On a narrow block the home soaks up the natural light and it felt really spacious throughout. The furniture was on point and who doesn't love an orange dinosaur?
