balmain 2000

An adventurous client inquired about the possibility of adding a level to a free standing two storey terrace house to provide her a generous bedroom, ensuite and dressing room with expansive views of industrial docks and city skyline - all to be simple, elegant and uplifting.

To avoid council rejection and loss of privacy to neighbours, windows were strategically placed - usually high up under the ceiling. Abstract views from within capture adjacent eucalypts, passing weather, the skyline of the pinnacle of Balmain, Anzac Bridge and most importantly the city beyond. Joinery items merge to form a whole.
