Bronte House 1

Location:
Sydney
Type:
House
Year:

Chenchow Little's Semi-Detached house carves for itself a new identity from the adjoining 'other half', and in so doing, strengthens its original form.

Tony Chenchow has a thing for warships.

And Stephanie Little has a thing for grafting.

Naval vessels incorporate new technology without the need to build crafts from scratch.

Grafting is the practise of fusing tissue from two plants to combines the roots of one with the flowers or fruit of another.

These ideas are comparable to the process of adapting existing building stock to new patterns of use.

For architects Chenchow Little, the thick stone base of a semidetached house in the Sydney beachside suburb of Bronte is the fondation for their recent experiment along these lines.
