10 Fold House: Playful and Luxurious by Timmins and Whyte

The front facade of the house highlighted the 10 folds roof design.

Designed by: Timmins and Whyte

10 Fold House is humble, playful and offers moments of luxury where it counts. Sitting quietly as a single fronted Edwardian in Abbotsford, Melbourne, the home’s original footprint has been observed, sensitively acknowledging its neighbouring architectural history and reflecting the pattern of the street.


10 folds in the roof serve to draw in light, while also minimizing bulk to the eastern neighbour and rising up to the large two-storey western neighbour.

Throughout, the space creates its own sense of expansion and compression – from intimate dining to the towering ceiling suspended over a wall of handpicked art.

The design further opens the kitchen at the rear to a now private garden, where neighbours houses are unseen yet their mature trees, including a palm and Jacaranda, become part of our client’s seasonal experience of their own garden.

True to our design philosophy, this is a considered and crafted home, improving living for our clients ten fold.
