NSW: At Home With the Architect Visits Haberfield

1710 b0

This months NSW At Home with the Architect, takes place on Sunday 29 October and visits a house in Haberfield with the architect Matthew Bennett, Director of Bennett and Trimble Architects.

This project adopts the architectural forms, materiality and elements prescribed within a strict heritage conservation area and subtly manipulates them to create a sympathetic yet contemporary addition to a 1920’s brick bungalow. The hipped terracotta roof form of the addition is re-aligned to create a courtyard within the addition and to minimise contact with the original dwelling. The figure of the rear terrace inflects to accommodate significant eucalypts within the back garden.


Bennett and Trimble is a small architecture and urban design practice based in Sydney. The partnership between Matthew Bennett and Marcus Trimble, established in 2009, undertakes work on a broad range of projects, from master planning through to alterations and additions.

Matthew and Marcus have been the recipients of prestigious scholarships, fellowships and design medals. Their designs have been published both nationally and internationally.
