David Boyle and the Freshwater semi

Posted on Wed, 3 Apr 2013 by midcenturyjo

A narrow 3.6m, south facing semi in Freshwater, Sydney. Not much space, little light. What do you do when you need more space, don’t have a wad of cash to throw at your problem and are looking for a cool design solution? Architect David Boyle has extended the rear of the house, opening it up to double height and turning a wall of glass to the coveted northern light. Timber plays off white surfaces adding richness to a casual family home. Although the budget was limited style is definitely not.




Doubling the height and turning a wall of glass for more light was a creative idea and works so well.

Cath says:

Really like the reclaimed wood surround outside the back door and the blue lights in the kitchen area.
