House with pivoting windows


This beautiful single family house designed by Christopher Polly Architects is located in Sydney. This project is a restoration of previously existing building. On a ground floor architects inserted an open plan kitchen with dining room and small living space connected by sliding door with amazing deck. 

On ground floor are located also laundry, storge, bedroom for guest with bathroom and lavatory.  On first floor is located second living space and two bedrooms, both with easy access to bathroom.

The open plan on ground floor provides a ‘day’ space for meals preparation, eating and enjoyment of garden, while upper living room is an ‘evening’ space for watching TV, reading, enetertaining.

What I like the most about this house is western red cedar externally sliding doors and  pivoting windows on first floor offering varying degrees of openness and enclosure.
