At the Beginning of May - 'At Home' Visits Glebe

1904 a0
On Sunday 5 May 'At Home' visits 'Ferry Road' residence in Glebe, designed by Anderson Architecture.

Simon Anderson, Principal of Anderson Architecture, will talk about the design process and lead you through this very sustainable home achieving an 8.0 Star rating.

Born of a steep and narrow site, a yearning for lightness and space and a core design philosophy grounded in passive solar design and sustainability, this Glebe house is representative of how infill development within a heritage conservation area can be comfortable, practical and environmentally sensitive without compromise.

A particular feature of the home is the central open staircase providing access from the ground floor to the first floor. The design of the stair allows for uninterrupted, through ventilation of the entirety of the ground and lower ground floors. The intricate design and detailing of this feature stair evidences the high quality results that may be achieved through the collaboration of design professionals with skilled tradespeople.

For the clients, entertainers and connoisseurs of fine food, the kitchen was integral to the project brief. Appropriately, the kitchen was apportioned a large share of the lower ground footprint with a generous work space and spacious walk in butler’s pantry. High level windows above, and sculptural roof articulation open up to create an immense sense of space above the living areas within the home’s comparably small footprint.
