Fearns Studio have designed the alteration of a heritage terrace home in Bondi, Australia.
An inner city heritage terrace alteration, the Bondi property was conceived as a very first floor timber tube above a ground level brick box behind the retained portion of the residence.
Skylight penetrations deliver light into the centre of the prepare, help define spaces inside of it and shield the privacy of neighbouring dwellings from upper level rooms whilst huge glazed doors open new ground level interiors to unobtrusive garden courtyards.
Deep door reveals in the kitchen and living regions frame smaller spaces within the open prepare with light and rhythm. The doors themselves emphasise this more by sliding fully clear of their openings.
Warmth is given to the white plaster walls and ceilings and to concrete flooring with oak cabinetry, windows, doors, and with blackbutt flooring by way of the remainder of the house.
