Fleet Street

Summer Hill, NSW

This terrace is one in a row of conservation listed houses. The alterations removed the 1980's ground floor living area at the rear, replacing it with a new volume which incorporates a kitchen, living and dining space. The roof of the new insertion is manipulated to capture high level light from three sides of glass. A new courtyard and a small reading nook bring light and air into the centre of the house. A sequence of open and intimate internal and external spaces link the existing house structure with the new spaces. This new volume bookends the rejuvenated rear garden with a new Studio building at the back of the site, and sets the garden and deck as the centre of the house.
