BRING TO LIGHT by Stafford Architecture

This terrace house in Sydney’s Darling Point was transformed from its former dark and pokey dual occupancy, into a bright and contemporary home for its owners.

The existing envelope of the terrace was maintained, with new openings created and new facades to the street and the harbour.

“The interior was entirely opened up to allow views to Rushcutters Bay from even the furthest depths of the house, and carved out to create soaring ceilings and voids, allowing light to penetrate every corner.”

Inside you are met with a stone stair that leads the eye up into a central void, cut to the west with a long skylight, flooding the space with sunlight. The void marks the heart of the home, over the expansive kitchen and monolithic stone island bench.
