This Glebe House, Sydney, Australia – Studio & Residence shop-top-housing project is located on a small back lane in a Heritage Conservation Area in Sydney’s inner-west bustling suburb of Glebe.
The house draws inspiration from previous centuries european architecture translated into modern details. Internal split levels allow the exterior facade to be broken up and stepped to create a small scale appearance suitable for its location.
The zinc roofing is wrapped around as standing-seam wall cladding to the upper floors, while the bottom level dark painted brick grounds the building in its setting.
An all concrete staircase leads up to the residential part of the building. The core concrete wall starting at the studio, continues through the bedroom level and finishes in the top floor living room.
