This is a new contemporary family home previously used as offices in the 1990s. It’s a restoration and brave modification of an existing 1880’s heritage-listed three-storey Victorian Italianate-style terrace house with carriageway, modifications to the rear wing and restoration and modifications to the 1860’s sandstone stables, restoration of rear stone fences and addition of a concrete carport with landscaped roof terrace located at the rear of an ‘L’ shaped site in Surry Hills, Sydney. The existing building’s generous size permitted additional spaces beyond the client’s needs and expectations allowing the introduction of the multi-use conservatory on the rear wing’s second level. The conservatory has been treated as an outdoor living area with potted trees. It’s a winter garden during the cooler seasons with abundant natural sunlight and, on rainy days, is protected by the glass roof.
