Inner City House
North Sydney, NSW
To be commenced
Passive Solar, ‘Smart-Home’ environmental monitoring,
This is a rejuvenation of an existing 1980’s home that provides additional space, new contemporary external materials palette and environmental strategies to re-life an aging but substantial family home. On a small city lot, the design incorporates several landscaping strategies to maximise connection with the outdoor environment and recreation space for the family, including roof-top garden and green-roof.
Working with the existing split-level floor plan design, a passenger lift is to be inserted in the middle of the floor plate linking all levels for accessibility of senior members of the family. All external spaces are designed as positive courtyard green spaces linking to internal ventilation paths and allowing for maximum control of natural light and ventilation through the home.
