Location Paddington, Sydney, NSW. Architect : Retallack Thompson Status Finished 2022 Service Build and Construct Sectors Residential
The multi-level terrace home had become endowed with a more recent extension to the rear, which sat ill-fitting to both the original form and its delicate detailing. Optimising the potential of the site while constrained by strict heritage overlays, architectural practise Retallack Thompson were engaged to reactivate the floor plan and transform the two-bedroom home into a more fitting three-bedroom residence for its young family. Hancock Homes took on the challenge to bring the vision to life for the happy clients. With the footprint of the home already established by the original form, the challenge was to work within the existing structure and bring light, flow and a sense of separation into the building. In such linear and narrowly flanked houses, a focus on drawing light down across multiple levels allows the home to breathe. The rear outlook was redefined by carefully sculpted joinery within the kitchen and living spaces, with punctuations to bring light in at various angles.
