'The Acute House,' a residence in Melbourne, Australia, has a unique layout for a residential property. Rather than conforming to the standard rectangular prism with a gabled roof, 'The Acute House' is true to its name with a wider back end that tapers to a point like an acute triangle.
The acute triangle is not a new design quirk for buildings. In fact, New York City's Flatiron Building has been a landmark since it was first built in 1902. However, that building and others that have emerged after it tend to be spaces for offices. The Acute House is a single family residential home, meaning that it is much smaller. This total size difference contributes to creative formulations of rooms on the inside of the house.
'The Acute House' is Narrow and Sharply Angled
