Semi-detached house from Chenchow Little in Sydney

Following architecture closely can get very interesting and especially when there are unheard forms of construction that continuously keep baffling you. A good example is this semi-detached house finished by Chenchow Little in Sydney, Australia. This housing project involved substantial alterations and additions to an ‘Arts and Crafts’ semi-detached house.

The very starting point for the project was its veranda as the house overlooks a beach and is blessed with a temperate climate. A detached house gets introverted rooms, small side windows and flat ceilings but Chenchow begged to differ here.

A new steel framed superstructure was added to the design and this helped in housing interstitial spaces and living rooms right above the sandstone basement and roughcast rendered bedroom level. Such spaces extend the living area and incorporate the verandas.
