Two-storey extension including underground garage extension
A complete transformation of this city-fringe home located in Sydney’s Inner West. Two levels become four with the demolition of the property rear to incorporate a garage on the lowest level, and three living areas on the upper levels. With the main balcony facing due east with sweeping views, filtering heat and light from the sun was paramount. Light sensored blinds with louvered blades triggering automatically as the sun moves across the building provides protection from the elements. The privacy of the open living spaces are cleverly managed with the installation of switchable glass – instantly frosting from opaque to clear with a flick of a switch. A main feature of the home are the open riser stairs – a single steel I-beam, fixed only at the top and bottom of the stair.
