Architecture AND have completed a significant restoration and addition to a heritage-listed federation house in inner-city Haberfield. Informed closely by the unique design guidelines for the context, the design response sought to reinterpret the materiality and expression of the existing dwelling in the new portion, providing a wholistic quality.

Restoration of federation dwelling.


Courtyard garden.

A hip roof form with verandah extension provided a distinctly contemporary identity, derived from historical development patterns.

Rear addition interior.

A subtle palette of red masonry, pigmented concrete floors, spotted gum joinery and white internal brick walls and v-groove ceilings provided a calm expression, emphasising the presence of the garden.
