Domenic Alvaro and the Small House

Rising up like a sturdy weed in a pavement crack. A spindly, winding shoot of a building reaching for the sun between the city structures. An ultra-compact concrete vertical house over 3 levels in what was previously a parking space for 2 cars, six by seven metres. And when you have wound your way to the top what is your reward? A perfect small garden with very large view. Small House by Domenic Alvaro.

Hey I have seen this project on TV. Beautiful, but this house lacks storage. If I remember well after the garage, you have to pass by the bedroom in order to reach the living room. Mmmm... I think it suits a couple well, and is very practical (great location !) but I wonder if they plan to have kids someday ...

I love these crazy unconventional spaces. Really takes a stroke of architectural genius to make them work. Very cool and appears to be comfortably functional too!

This house was on Grand Designs Australia. Very interesting build and use of a small inner city space. Love the rooftop garden.

Other than the stairs - I do like a rail - it's a very nice design. But c'mon - really? There's a female in that kitchen? Why? I mean, I see no indication of chickdom anywhere else! Please tell me it isn't because photographically, 'that's where women belong'.

The architect and his wife live here and she loves cooking. The kitchen was her design .... Jo.
