Castlecrag house

This is an extension and renovation to a 1950’s house in Castlecrag, Sydney. It had to be a modest, restrained addition as it sat between to important houses designed by Walter Burley Griffin.

It is a simple kitchen / dining / living space with a planted green roof. There are oversized doors that open up to the north and a small pool that sits to the west.
