'The Acute House' is Narrow and Sharply Angled

'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.
