Architecture and interiors practice, Alexander and Co. has extended a spatially challenged cottage in Mosman, Sydney, to realise its full potential as home to a family of five.

You would never know what lies beyond this single-fronted worker’s cottage from looking at its façade. But there are a series of surprises in store.
