A sensory oasis from the hustle and bustle of inner-city living

In inner Sydney, an artist and musician transformed their 19th-century Victorian terrace home, guided by their love for heritage, art and innovative ideas. The renovation incorporates hexagonal grey tiles, sparking a creative blend of materials, geometries, and textures. The design emphasizes openness, light and a strong indoor-outdoor connection. Sliding doors welcome in natural light, while a customized ‘cabinet of curiosities’ showcases their collections. The courtyard garden, reminiscent of a Victorian fernery, features vibrant art and unique architectural elements. Throughout, the original terrace’s charm is preserved, honouring its fireplaces, ceilings, floorboards, and stairs. Darlinghurst Terrace by Sam Crawford Architects.
