The Truss House is a new building embedded with a memory of the site’s former industrial past through the re-use of salvaged roof trusses. They create a new pitched skillion roof form, celebrating the exposed structure as an integral part of the character. The material palette nods to the existing timber mill building in its use of recycled brick walls, corrugated roof sheeting, concrete floors, and details,Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanTruss House playfully reinterprets the traditional terrace house. It unlocks spatial and structural capacity by revealing the traditional truss roof form internally and also a playful inversion at the rear to form a modern skillion profile. It programmatically places the public room to the front and the private areas upstairs.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanTruss House is sympathetic to its context, stepping down in height with the fall in the site and scaling down not only along its length but also as an element in the composition of Beattie St. The house is an important mediator in form and size between the adjacent Factory residence and the neighbouring residence on the site’s western boundary.Save this picture!Ground floorSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!First floorThe form of the steel truss roof serves as an opportunity for high level windows along the length of the home, to allow diffuse light in and glimpses of passing clouds in the sky and tree tops, providing amenity whilst maintaining privacy. Rear windows are hooded with operable shutters to protect the glazing, to control light and to maintain privacy.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanThe living rooms of the house incorporate large windows and doors that open to embrace beautifully landscaped gardens and courtyards that provide a range of outdoor spaces to be enjoyed by occupants.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanTruss House serves as an example of breathing new life into what would’ve been thrown out before its life-span. It is an idiosyncratic reinvention of the Antipodean terrace.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanProject gallerySee allShow lessDajiaoting “Big Family” Community Center / MAT OfficeSelected ProjectsContinuity of Structure Defines this Timber Canopy in ChileMisc Share “COPY” Photographs Houses Truss House / Carter Williamson ArchitectsSave this projectSaveTruss House / Carter Williamson Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyHouses•Balmain, Australia ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: Carter Williamson Architects Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Brett Boardman+ 13 Share Photographs:  Brett Boardman Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project 2016 ArchDaily Melissa Wilson Landscape Architects Landscape: Manufacturers: western red cedar, Builder, The Brick Pit Year:  Area:  390 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeCarter Williamson ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBalmainAustraliaPublished on May 21, 2017Cite: “Truss House / Carter Williamson Architects” 21 May 2017.
