This is a first attempt to come to a design proposition for an addition to a terrace house in Ultimo, right on the edge of Sydney's CBD.
The project intent is to make something of the street at the rear of the property, which is currently treated as a left-over. Our intervention is to set a precedent, informing the development of the row of buildings that it sits within.
The image shown is an interior view of the proposal standing at the edge of the existing building, looking towards the rear. The starting point was a response to the arched facades of the neighbouring garages and the area's industrial heritage. The interior spaces look at trying to create something similar to the play of shadows and light as experienced under the canopy of a tree.
It's early days, updates to follow.
