The brief was to create a light, bright, and comfortable open plan home which was family friendly and great for entertaining whilst making the most of their 490sqm site.
The house dates from 1930, with a facade of 7m wide and a built depth of 10m. This town house survives the real estate pressure and the transformation of the neighborhood that has been replacing this typology with multi-family buildings of more than 4 floors as those that surround it.
As a nod to the prolific housing typology of the area, through its use of materials, T2 Residence reinterprets the workers cottage into a contemporary timber clad house that adopts the idyllic image of the ‘house’, carrying it through to the details exampled in the profile of its front fence.
Designed by Kyiv-based architect Sergey Makhno for his own family, the home boasts a roof terrace, an open-plan living, kitchen and dining area, multiple art pieces, and numerous articles of furniture designed specifically for the apartment by Makhno.
Secret courtyards, skylights and perforated brickwork, flood Aperture Residence with natural light, a new build home in Islington enclosed in brick.
The project is driven by the clients vision to restore and preserve a beautiful doubly storey weatherboard bungalow in Williamstown.
