Woollahra Terrace by Madeleine Blanchfield Architects blends original character with contemporary family living. Transforming the original dark residence, the vibrant and fresh design emphasises existing period details within a modern context. Arched doors connect the new living space, echoing the original brick doorway motif. A sunlit kitchen, framed by steel windows, centres the layout. Monochrome interiors are offset by greenery-framed views while the austere concrete and white exteriors contrast with a lush, intentionally flowerless garden.
