Rose Bay house

In a quiet residential street, set on a small block of land of 235sqm the existing single storey semi-detached dwelling consisted of only 2 bedrooms.
The task was to create a home for a family with two small kids. The new design included the demolition of the rear part of the existing house and rebuild as a two-storey building. The internal layout maximises the use of the available space and creates a home with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and an open plan kitchen, dining & living room. The partly covered courtyard forms an outdoor extension of the living realm. Steps lead up to the garden and new swimming pool area.
Slit-like high sill windows ensure privacy to the close by neighbours whilst allowing enough daylights to penetrate the rooms. The roof has been designed as a hipped roof to match and extend the existing roof form. All upstairs rooms have full-height ceilings with openable skylights. This does make the rooms feel bigger and allows cross-ventilation and sunlight to all upstairs rooms. To provide adequate storage for the family the upstairs wall between the corridor and bedrooms has been designed as build-in wardrobes alternative facing the bedrooms and corridor. The downstairs cabinets flow uninterrupted from dining to kitchen to living space and outdoor bbq area.
