Revesby Dual Occupancy
The development is within an area where project homes and old fibro cottages dominate the streetscape. The client’s brief was to design a modern home with 4 bedrooms. Other than this requirement he left it up to Antonius and Associates to consider the requirements of a home and to start with an empty canvas. This was a great opportunity to design a building that didn’t conform to the existing streetscape yet related to the site and its environs.
The form of the building catches the north light from the street with its sailing roof form whilst taking advantage of the deep block with side courtyards that come off the kitchen and lounge areas of the house. Double height spaces over the lounge areas provide visually interesting spaces within the dwelling.
Large terraces come off the living/dining areas at the rear connecting the internal and external areas. That connection with the external courtyards is experienced within every space of the ground floor of the dwellings.
