Davis House

Location:
Darlinghurst, Sydney
Type:
Terrace House
Year:
1997
Architect:
Engelen Moore
CO-AP Architects
Photographer:
Ross Honeysett

The transformation of an exisiting ( typical sydney) 3 storey victorian terrace into a modern split apartment building.

The primary intention was to reorient the house to the rear of the site and to dispense with with the exisiting cellular rooms.

In doing so the creation of a large open plan living space which extends out onto a roof terrace to the rear.

The dilapidated rear wing was demolished and a new exposed steel framed wing was built which incorporates an aluminium clad spiral stair - thereby allowing access to the rear garden and garage from the roof terrace

The main spaces double as a gallery for the owner’s collection of Asian artefacts and modern artwork and complete the transformation from Victorian terrace house to urbane, modern apartment.

The site falls ten metres from the street to the rear lane and has a panoramic view from the rear stretching from St Vincent’s Hospital in the west to Bondi Junction in the east. An existing separate entry from the street to the lower ground floor allows for a self-contained one bedroom flat at the lower level.
