WAVERLEY

SYDNEY

“Glenrock Terrace” is the oldest surviving terrace in the Waverley area and is considered one of the best examples of a stone terrace in Sydney. One in a row of 10, the existing house consisted of a sandstone terrace with an unsympathetic rear addition (which was demolished). Wall linings were stripped to reveal the original coarse sandstone blocks.

A new addition was conceived as a separate modern pavilion linked to the original part of the house, allowing as much natural light as possible. The texture and scale of the front rooms contrats with the openness and lightness beyond; continuity between the two is achieved with a layer of contemporary lighting and furniture.
