Event description

Description

Chamfer House revisits a post-and-beam dwelling, designed in 1977 by Kevin Borland. It sits within an established garden on Oliver’s Hill, a crucible of late Modernism overlooking Port Phillip Bay. The current owners approached Mihaly Slocombe soon after moving in. They wanted to protect the timber structure and ceilings they loved, while also updating the house to suit their young family. Mihaly Slocombe's intervention assumed a strategy of sensitive infiltration. They touched every room, some more heavily than others, yet retained the house’s core personality: the romantic rationalism that characterised much of Borland’s later work. They unkinked the plan, pulled back a touch on the 1970s psychedelics, and reconfigured the living and sleeping areas to better connect with the garden. Mihaly Slocombe sought to build on the juxtaposition of structural rationality and romanticism, layering a rational spatial sequence with an exploded interpretation of the chamfer. A device regularly used by Borland, they developed it into a three-dimensional form that operates from the macro scale to the micro. The faceted balcony soffit framing the view from the master bedroom is one example, as are the repetitive triangular motifs in the customised joinery hardware.
