Before productive gardens became associated with sustainable living, waves of World War II immigrants settled in Sydney’s Inner West and maintained produce gardens to retain their cultural and food heritage. With a similar Mediterranean background, the garden became the catalyst for our clients and has been the conceptual driver of the architectural solution.

Coiled House by David Boyle Architect

The front of this house in Marrickville is reimagined for sleeping and a new extension is grafted to the rear. A double height transition space acts as a light source to a progression of new living spaces that sculpturally coil around a central garden. The interstitial garden to the binary plan becomes the focal point to the living spaces and provides light to the southern rooms.

Internal spaces extend to the productive garden and terrace for outdoor cooking, pool and garage. Designed from the inside out, connection to garden is prioritised and omnipresent.
