A terrace home in Sydney

Jessica Zavaglia, an interior architect and designer for Danny Broe Architect, emailed about a fun project they completed in Surry Hills, Sydney. Their task was to create a more functional home that was open and bright. The rear of existing ground floor was completely demolished and the top, fully brick floor has been propped up by the new red frame. In addition, we extended the new kitchen into the existing breezeway and we excavated the backyard to create a car space that is not visible from the kitchen. The car is concealed by the planter box. The owner loves colour so making the beam red was a cool idea, and the bright orange in the kitchen is gorgeous with the wood floor and wall.

That kitchen looks utterly amazing, and the entire space is quite lovely -- except it's all kind of ruined by the damask chairs on steroids. Good God, the arms on those things are taking over the room!

The space looks great! Would totally love to cook in that kitchen! Those chairs must be sentimental to the owners, i do however think they look better in the after shot than the before.

Really liking the red steel framework between the kitchen and the backyard.

I wish the photos of Before and After were presented in such a way that the eye can actually follow the change and progression. When an After photo is taken from a completely different angle, for example, I have a hard time tracking what happened and how the transformation occurred. I guess I'm just so literal!
