The design of the Sterndale Road Victorian Terrace almost has two faces – smart period rooms at the front with their expansive bay windows flooding the spaces with light, featuring traditional proportions and deep and enveloping colour schemes …
The 200m2 apartment was transformed into a 1-bedroom studio and organized into two main areas: the social area taking up the width of the front façade, which include the living and dining rooms with an integrated kitchen;
UPHouse is the tail of a simple operation: the introduction of a space of intimate scale into another space, which, being domestic, is exposed and social. The project indeed adds 50% more area to the apartment by installing a light steel structure and a staircase that allows access to the new upper floor.
The renovation ” Slopeside Remodel ” was to be a concise editing of the architecture and furnishings – a process of removal rather than addition. Key walls and an oversized stone fireplace were removed to create better connections and flow at the main living spaces.
The Attic Kazan project was implemented and completed in December 2016. An apartment for permanent residence of two adult spouses, the children have already left and live their adult independent lives.
This project involved the restoration and modification of a heritage-listed three storey Italianate-style c1890’s terrace house and 1860’s sandstone stable in inner Sydney.
