Above | A series of ‘garden rooms’ entwine the new home within this historic and leafy Sydney suburb. An original sandstone perimeter wall was refurbished and rebuilt, paying homage to the history of the site.
The house is simultaneously earthy and organic, modern and inviting, while reflecting the clients’ combined Italian and Sri Lankan heritage
A seamless flow through the interior outwards to the courtyards and gardens creates a connection between the textural, raw concrete and timber to the outdoors and sky.
The interior is warm and comfortable, with detailing designed to provide clarity of space and form.
The living pavilion exemplifies the vision of the project – to create a space built of raw materials that integrate inside and outside.
Generous natural light and a warm, textured palette combine to create a tranquil retreat.
Large bespoke sliding doors and high ceilings allow a natural light and a sense of openness to emanate throughout the space.
