Ross Gardam Cornerstone House by Splinter Society Photography by Sharyn Cairns

Cornerstone House | Splinter Society Architecture

content-image-type

Inspired by the site and the earth the home sits upon, The Cornerstone House references the quarries that originally occupied the area. Splinter Society combines contrasts, embedding a sense of robustness together with a refinement and detailing to capture the layered and storied history of the site.

An ode to rugged beauty inspired by the project site itself, referencing the quarries that once typified the area was the inspiration for this project by Chris Stanley, director of Melbourne-based Splinter Society Architecture.

Fittingly named, the inception of this reference is to the dozen physical cornerstones that are placed throughout the site. Emerging as rough and uncut boulders, they stand as untouched elements quarried from the earth. Their presence is both a reminder and a reference point from which the rest of the home pivots. Once craned onto site, the construction and built form is generated around the stones, further emphasising their significance as anchor points to the design.

Styled by Swee Design, featuring Ross Gardam Noon Armchair, Coffee Tables, Silhouette Pendant Light, and Hemera Desk Lamp.
