A clever repurposing of an existing 1970s house into a stunning multi-generational living experience on the edge of Sydney Harbour.
Originally designed as the Sydney pied-à-terre for visiting architect Sir Roy Grounds, it was not fit for purpose as a permanent family residence.
Renovations sensitively conserve the original structure while adding space, amenity and connections to the court-garden and harbour. This project illustrates how well-designed buildings of the past can be reborn through conservation and reuse, saving embodied carbon and avoiding material waste.
Socially, the impact of bringing two generations together into one property is immeasurable.
