This addition to an existing Paddington terrace takes advantage of level differences across the site to develop a new underground room. The design utilises a 7 metre feature wall based on a ribbon geometry flowing directly into the courtyard and creating an aesthetic as well as functional link between the historic existing terrace house and the overtly modern new addition.

The Little Young project, currently in plannig phase, i ane xtension to an existing worker's cottage. The project manipulates the existing form and subverts the traditional dormer window by extruding its form back into the space using curved fluid planes. In essence, this project deals with the creation of a three dimensional dormer window that filters through the entire site and interacts in all dimensions of the building. The design's lightweight panel construction will work to address difficulties in access to the site.
Enter Architecture is currently in the planning phase of an extension to an existing terrace house located in Redfern, Sydney. The design plays with three dimensional dynamic and evocative geometries that respond closely to existing site parameters. Arced and curved geometries create an organic flow through the site while facilitating a new relationship between interior and exterior. A series of smooth roof planes varying and changing in curvature subvert the existing terrace structure to create a dynamic and dramatic renewal of the existing building.
