The Wentworth Street house is brick with a terracotta tiled gable roof, built in the 1940s. Its asymmetrical form, informal details and colour-washed brickwork point to inter-war Mediterranean style architecture.
The clients’ brief was to open up the home’s dark internal spaces and allow them to make the most of the beautiful, established gardens.
Our timber and brick addition takes its cues from the home’s existing lean-to. A new sunroom and deck expands the existing north-facing living room, while generous, landscaped steps connect the house to the new outdoor living space and winding garden paths. A slot window and skylight delineates old from new and lights the original building.
