This 1905 former army drill hall in Leichhardt, Sydney has been reimagined as a modern home. The building was not heritage listed but the design saw original elements salvaged and reused with unsympathetic additions removed.
“… the historic arched brick entryway provides access directly into the hall, where living, dining and kitchen areas flow together, opening to a sunny terrace. Above this space, two new mezzanine lofts accommodate a guest suite and study, with private terraces set into the roofline.
Downstairs – at garden level – the lower ground floor was entirely rebuilt as the main bedroom suite, and it opens to the newly landscaped large garden and upgraded pool area.”
