Sibling House

Designed by Grove Architects this elegant Eastern Suburbs residence was shortlisted by both the Australian Institute of Architects NSW, and Houses, for the Residential Alterations & Additions category. The project entailed renovating one of two twin houses, requiring a careful balance between respecting the existing house, while completely reinventing the function and feel for the new owners. Through a series of selective changes, the house has been completely revitalised, turning it from a ‘twin’ to a ‘sibling’. The build entailed new double-height spaces, a generous new entry, kitchen courtyard, and a completely revitalised relationship between the street and house. Two small rear extensions created new garden interfaces, a new bay window, and planted roof terrace.

"A complex design flawlessly executed. The level of finish achieved on all elements was outstanding. Bespoke building at its best."
