Smart Design Studio - Sydney Architects

Crown 515

The challenge of this site was to retain an existing, free-standing terrace house flanked by an empty block on one side and a small triangular site on the other. The design approach created two distinct but related architectural gestures on either side of the existing structure.  An ‘infill terrace’ to the north of the site connects the heritage building to its northern neighbours, continuing the familiar vertical rhythm of rectangular forms cut with residential balconies. To the south, a dynamic urban sculpture is poised to give distinct personality and landmark character to the site from its main visual approach of Crown Street. Completion 2015.
