What’s lurking in the back of this 1900s home located in Melbourne, Australia?

The Trojan House in Australia by Jackson Clements Burrows in architecture  Category

Why, it’s a modern addition by Jackson Clements Burrows! This house is like a mullet: all business in the front and a party in the back.

JCB added a 1,700-square-foot extension to what was once a 1,000-square-foot Edwardian-style home. The crazy cantilevered design is quite a risk. The architects designed it that way in order to sidestep a building code that restricted how close they could get to the property’s edge. The owners, two doctors with three children, named the home “Trojan” because when they close the window shutters, they can see out but no one can see in.
