Stalking an up-cycle house

Posted on Fri, 26 May 2017 by midcenturyjo

I’m stalking something slightly different today. I’m in Blackheath, a town in the Blue Mountains outside Sydney and I’m stalking the first home of a young architect. “Up-Cycle House is a freestanding 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom family home that is ideally located within walking distance to the lively high street of Blackheath Village. The house has been lovingly renovated by Architect and owner Alexander Symes. Recently completed, the renovation pays tribute to recycled building materials that have been “up-cycled” with a creativity and playfulness not found in an ordinary house. The architectural vision has come to life to create a unique home that celebrates sustainable design and living.”  The link to the real estate listing is here while it lasts and you can read more of Symes process here.

Love the idea of crazy-quilt tiled floors. Very green, economical and lively!
