We provided design services for a complete renovation to a family home located in Drummoyne, Sydney. The brief was to create a brick family home that was bright and light whilst being private, within a compact footprint.
From the street, the brick form is shaped to follow the rhythm of the streetscape and from the rear the form maintains the neighbours’ views of Sydney’s city skyline. From within the site, the envelope offers protection and privacy to both owners and neighbours, with strategically located openings.
Within the building, there is a feeling of protected openness with high level views of the sky and low level views of the gardens. Between these natural outlooks, the solid arms of the face brick walls offer privacy and a sanctuary within.
