This 259sqm site has one long boundary facing a narrow road. More like an easement, a quirk of the original New Farm grid. This long narrow house has a hard face to the road punctuated only by a long kitchen, window and front door. At the front door the house is only 2m wide and opens to the North facing landscape behind.
Two courtyards face the north and distribute breeze and sunlight into the essentially one room deep plan. The house has 8 neighbours, nestled into the middle of this inner city block. The plan is crafted to provide privacy within this intimate environment. This is achieved whilst providing views out and allowing light in.
All finishes are economical. The house is constructed by a project builder and utilises project home technology in unique ways to achieve a tight budget.
