This Month @home Visits Waverley

1909 b0

This month @home visits Kent House, designed by Studio Schelp. Meet architect Manuelle Schelp and experience how the alterations and additions to this terrace home have updated its facilities to better meet the needs of a 21st century lifestyle.

Part of a group of three terraces and located on a narrow block sloping down southwards from the street, the existing house has its major rooms addressing the street, while the ancillary functions are relegated to the back.

The concept was to strip back the existing building to its main core and add a new rear pavilion with internal courtyard to provide northern sun and day light access and cross ventilation to the centre of the new floor plate. Exposed steel portal frames, clad with metal sheeting, defines the shell of the new pavilion.

Internally, a timber shaped structure ‘wanders’ through the double height volume to form the various spaces and their built-in joinery; the kitchen / dining at lower ground, and the living at ground floor.


Manuelle Schelp is a registered architect in both Switzerland and Australia. She founded her Darlinghurst architecture and interior design practice - Studio Schelp, in 2007.

Studio Schelp delivers design services including concept design, design development, development application, construction documentation, tender, contract administration and services during construction.

Her portfolio of projects is focused predominately in residential design, ranging from single houses to large scale apartment buildings. She has also worked on office, commercial and community projects.
