Projects in Progress: Waverton Semi

Currently under construction in Waverton, North Sydney, this semi-detached house with harbour views is being converted from a single-storey dwelling to three storeys, substantially increasing space and amenity for a family of four despite a narrow five-metre wide site.

The new design features a second storey above with entertaining space and additional bedroom, while a lower ground floor with rumpus room will be created by excavating two metres of solid rock to create a space that opens directly onto the back yard at ground level.

A stairway connecting all three storeys will flood the space with light thanks to raked ceilings and skylights, making the most of the full volume of the house.
