This month 'At Home With The Architect' invites you to explore a residence in Woollahra. Taking place on Sunday 26 August, architect Andy Harding, one of the directors of Stanic Harding, will guide tour particants through the collaboration between Stanic Harding and interior designers Interni.
'The house was originally built in the 1930’s, however, it had been poorly renovated in the late 1980’s where many of the building's original features had been removed', said Andy Harding. The client’s desire was to refurbish the building bringing back the character of the original house whilst accommodating the requirements of a contemporary family.
The original entry to the house sat one level up from the street which was accessed via a narrow external stair with the main living level located on the next level and the bedrooms on the level above. To provide suitable access it was elected that an internal street level access be generated connecting to a lift and stair connecting all levels of the building. This required tunnelling under the existing house which proved to be a very complex proposition due to the “found” condition of the existing building fabric.
The result is a house which was driven by strong pragmatic and aesthetic requirements from the clients and the design team that sits comfortably within its elevated Woollahra setting.
