House in Alexandria

Year: In Progress
Country: Gadigal Land

House in Alexandria is a substantial alteration and addition to an existing dwelling in a heritage conservation area. The existing poorly designed lean-to structure at the rear is removed and a new two-storey addition is erected.

The new first-floor bedroom pavilions wrap around lightwells, internal gardens and a rear roof garden. Wherever you sit or rest, you are always in contact with either garden or sky. The rear facade curves around the roof garden to provide inward-facing and private spaces.
