Balmain House – IDEA 2019

Balmain House

Sandwiched between 14 adjacent properties, this house on a small inner-city block is designed to provide simple, functional, generous, private and light-filled living spaces for a young family. The central idea was to wrap the original workers’ cottage with a continuous series of indoor and outdoor spaces. Each downstairs living room – interior and exterior – ‘borrows’ space from the other, to make the most of volume, light and air.
