Rock-like materials and a sense of monumentality connect a new concrete pavilion with a longstanding sandstone cottage.
Designed by LAYAN and The Flaming Beacon, an illuminated façade screen transforms the interior of Light House with ever-changing light and shadows dependent on the seasons and time of day.
Compact yet flexible spatial planning characterises this extension to a traditional, and largely untouched, workers cottage in Sydney by Mark Szczerbicki Design Studio.
More often than not, the budget drives the building area and design process. In Allan Street House, Gardiner Architects shows us otherwise.
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.
