NSW: At Home With the Architect Visits Riverview

1705 a1

This months NSW At Home with the Architect, takes place on Sunday 28 May. Visit 'Riverview House' a brick residence designed by Bennett and Trimble Architects for a young family.

Looking to create a home that connects spaces both visually and spatially, the architects designed the two storey residence around an internal courtyard. The internal spaces are orientated to capitalise on daylighting and the roof is deliberately angled to maximise access to the north.
