A significant alteration to a semi-detached house in Sydney’s east for a family of sun chasers.
Set high on a ridge behind a row of olive trees, two new double-height volumes clad in waterstruck bricks are nestled behind the front of the original house.
The northernmost volume twists slightly up and out to capture light and views across to the west and the north, whilst the ground floor plane folds down towards a northern courtyard and plunge pool.
