In this episode I talk to Fiona Dunin, founder of the Melbourne based architecture studio, FMD Architects. We talk about her recently completed project CLT House.
The project is a reconfiguration of an existing building to create a multigenerational home. It takes its name from the material used for its construction, Cross Laminated Timber, which has been celebrated in this house, for its versatility, being used both as a structural material and as the main interior surface finish.
The distinctive feature of the house is the sawtooth profile of the main roof, which creates a great space internally and triangular windows and sharp angular profiles on the exterior.
At the end of the episode, I ask Fiona the three questions I ask all my podcast guests;
– what really annoys her about her home?
– what house has she visited that has really inspired her?
– and, if she could choose anyone to design her a new house, who would she choose?
If you would like to find out more about CLT House, you can see images of the project on the episode page at anotherarchitecturepodcast.com and you can find out more about Fiona and her studio at fmdarchitects.com.au
I hope you enjoy listening.
