The original home is comforting to me. It resembles the Queenslander homes I have grown up with. But move through its original rooms, cross the "bridge" oven the ponds and what opens before you is a sleek, contemporary home. Modern, stylish, open plan. I'm stalking a Longueville, Sydney home by architects Marsh Cashman Koolloos that certainly is hiding a secret behind its old timber and tin facade. Old and new, open and enclosed, positive and negative space. I would love to see more photos or perhaps attend an open for inspection to make more sense of the space although you'll be able to understand a little better from the floor plan. Link here while it lasts.
