This residence is the centrepiece of an historic 1928 building by the harbour at Elizabeth Bay in Sydney. A major reconstruction of the building resulted in all new interior layouts and an architectural addition with garden terrace.

The relationship between the historic building and the new extension is characterised with a change of materiality; from light timbers and translucent glass screens to black terrazzo and steel framed doors to the terrace. The interiors responded to the iconic nature of the building with elegant details that will endure over time.
