EDGECLIFF HOUSE

Edgecliff, Sydney
With Jane Irwin Landscape Architect.
Short listed RAIA Awards 2000

1998 – 1999
This compact site, located within a conservation zone, had a small 1950’s cottage at its centre. The cottage had little architectural merit, other than for the well-proportioned square living room. The walls and fireplace of this room were retained, but the roof was removed to make an open courtyard, around which the new three level home was built.

The design created a complex sequence of rooms, garden spaces and courtyards.
