Previously a 2-storey brick stables outbuilding to a large Victorian house, a subdivision of the original property released this free-standing building and land from the original title. Our brief was to maximise the potential of living spaces within the existing building envelope and create a private dwelling. The result is largely an internal fitout and expression of plywood joinery units that sit within and dissect larger spaces, externally a cantilevered metal clad wall, private from the street, forms one wall of the external courtyard.

The completed building comprises 2 large bedrooms, one of which forms a study and a bathroom with no windows but a 4 metre high skylight above the shower at first floor with open plan living spaces at ground floor.  The ground floor living area extends onto a south facing private courtyard where 2 cars can park on-site in addition to a north-facing roof deck.
