Split House is a reconstruction project done by BiLD, with some sustainable architecture designs applied. It changes the old-fashioned typical inter-war house into a modern sustainable home in Melbourne, Australia.

The original house has old fashioned layout and the architect tried to change this and some aspects, also involving some green architecture concepts, such as recycling, upcycling, natural daylighting, and passive ventilation strategy. This was inspired by the sculptural projects of Gordan Matta-Clarke from the 1970s, where the artist carved  out entire chunks of buildings to change the form.

The architect splitted the house in the center to provide access of natural lighting, higher void, and strong links to the expansive garden. Some parts were moved and changed by new kitchen and dining zone, laundry/bathroom, living room and upper level study/guest room.

Some sustainable features are also available, especially the use of sustainable energy source like solar panels for heating, and rainwater harvesting system for watering the garden. A green roof is also provided. Some sustainable materials were used, especially from recycled and up-cycled timbers and structural elements.

This green building architecture may provide a good example of a good reconstruction process to create a modern design with high sustainability.
