Trojan House by Jackson Clements Burrows

Trojan House is situated on the streets of Melbourne and burn an monotonous wooden giant. Designed by Jackson Clements Burrows architects, the most amazing aspect of the structure is the three children’s bedrooms that have been cantilevered above a large living space, and that amazing kitchen.


Windows, covered by shutters that follow the pattern of the façade, reveal nothing of the interior space. Many modern homes utilize interior plantation shutters as window dressings which compliment architectural designs.


This house has an extreme design, a very modern one that will catch the attention of anyone who passes by. But this design was not created just to impress the others, it also had a practical purpose. By placing the children’s bedroom in that additional structure above the living room, their space becomes more personal and intimate. It’s a structure separated from the rest of the house, not in totality but still, it’s something. This allows the kids to have more privacy and they can feel more independent this way.


It must be very cool to be a little kid and to live in a house like this. It’s something that the other kids could never compete with. As you can imagine, the house is very modern and the interior design shares the same characteristics. It’s simple and elegant, but mainly functional. This is a very successful combination between those two attributes.
