Sited on a triangular lot in Sydney, the Platform House mimics its geometric site with a dramatic angular design. The home, or platform for living as Studioplusthree likes to call it, is made up of a pair of stacked volumes. Its lower level is housed in a while shell and consists of four bedrooms. Perched above, the contrasting charred cypress unit places the main living area in the treetops. It's interior is light and airy, an atmosphere created by a pale palette and loads of natural light. Carefully placed windows frame in the verdant scenery while sliding doors open to a north-facing deck. Cantilevering over the ground floor, the upper floor creates shelter for the garden terrace below.
