This project is a contemporary addition to a turn-of-the-century terrace house in inner Sydney. By reorienting the courtyard to the side of the block, the project challenges the typical terrace configuration. It creates a north-facing side garden extending the full length of the addition. The compact building has a slender footprint, where each interior space relates to a different garden room. An equivalency of interior and exterior space is created, expanding the spatial relationship beyond the building envelope.
