An oasis in the city

Posted on Thu, 24 Aug 2023 by midcenturyjo

This serene urban home is embraced by its garden in the inner Sydney suburb of Glebe. The heritage house with its contemporary extension is organized around a tranquil central courtyard, merging indoor and outdoor spaces. This courtyard expands the living areas, while side courtyards offer contemplative and food-producing spaces. This functional family garden features a lawn, trampoline, basketball hoop, and a vegetable patch with a native bee hive. It serves as a peaceful hub connecting and concealing various home activities. Utilizing sandstone blocks from the house’s foundations, existing materials were repurposed for hardscape elements, reducing the need for new resources.
