Neutral Bay House

Neutral Bay House

A typical Sydney semi-detached house was reworked to accommodate the needs of a young family, enjoy sunlight, embrace its small garden and carefully curate and frame its outlook to achieve a space that extends beyond its confined urban site.

One of the lovely things about this renovation is how seamlessly the newer parts of the home link to the old. Though very contemporary, the new living and dining space at the rear of the home perfectly complement the existing structure, adding a new dimension without detracting from the home’s original charm. Crucially, the updates have enabled...access (to) wonderful natural light and views to the garden, trees and sky, which is so rare in most Victorian homes.
