Boarding House in Surry Hills

We were fortunate to inherit a DA for a strong, positive building by HK ArchiDraft. We have refined the design as we have been working on an amended council application and construction documentation. The building has been split into two thin volumes each in a different brick colour, with the face brick being chosen to reflect the face brick school building across the road and to provide a human, domestic scale to a residential building.

The entry and access to the rooms lies between these volumes and is expressed with vertical louvres at each end. The pop-out windows provide a little relief, and possibly the sense of a secondary space in each of the boarding rooms.

The project is being tendered at the moment and should start construction soon.
