Unpretentious brief unlocks light and sun.

Campbell House

2010 Gadi and Eora Country / Bondi Beach, NSW

A modest brick cottage in North Bondi, a creative couple with young children, a fragrant garden, and a delightfully unpretentious brief mark out this project.

A rear addition extends the living room into the garden and forms a parents retreat to the second level. The stair void and large north-facing window allow natural light and sun into the new south-facing living spaces. The plywood stair is suspended from the second level above, whilst a concrete pedestal underpins the composition.

The landscape design by Spirit Level beautifully complements and extends the indoor living spaces.
