Especially developed for a family with three young children, this robust residence entitled Queen’s Park House and located in Sydney, Australia looks cozy and welcoming. According to the architects ( Fox Johnston ) , the objective was to create a functional, practical and user friendly home for the inhabitants, with a high degree of flexibility: “We endeavored to create a series of spaces in the old and new house that could be flexible over time – a playroom was designed for the children which could be converted into a study or additional bedroom at a later stage. A guest retreat accessed from the lane way could also be a future teenagers bedroom, or a space for a grandparent if need be“. The materials chosen for the construction were brick, concrete and timber, ensuring longevity and durability over time. Inspiring timber cladding additions on the walls and ceiling bring originality and extra warmth. Green spaces and a roof garden provide a healthy environment for children to play and relax. – Photography by : Simon Wood
