House Milner Shmukler that located in Sydney, Australia , was designed by Tribe Studio. Built for a Sydney family, the house is on a deep, narrow, north-facing site on an unattractive beach-side suburban street. The clients have two kids, a large extended family and live very casually, entertaining outdoors all year round. Built to a tight budget, House Shmukler is honest in its material palette and uses industrial construction techniques. On a steel portal frame, the exterior is conceived of as a wrap of sheet metal lined in bracing ply, within which the pristine plasterboard boxes hover. The floor is structural concrete slab with in-slab heating/cooling.
Low light windows and concealed operable skylights promote cross and stack-effect ventilation. Side penetrations are limited to allow the house to focus on the pool and direct sunshine at the northern end, and northern light and air penetrates the depth of the plan from skylights over the double height voids.
