This months NSW At Home with the Architect, takes place on Sunday 30 April. Discover the Federation era suburb of Haberfield, as you explore additions and alterations designed by Sam Crawford Architects. The original Federation Style house was built in 1914 and sits within the Conservation Area of Haberfield, an original 'garden suburb' now part of the Register of the National Estate of Australia.
A problematic 1990's addition has been removed and spacious and contemporary living spaces added: open plan kitchen, living & dining room, media room and attic conversion. Graceful curves of off-form concrete are revealed in views through and past the original building, opening to a minimalist courtyard garden and extension to the rear.
A low-ceilinged garage in the corner of the very large block has been repurposed into a vaulted cabana space, deliberately contained to create a sanctuary and recreation area adjacent to the pool.
