Tusculum Residence / Smart Design Studio

first_img “COPY” Text description provided by the architects. This exciting renovation and extension of a turn-of-the-century terrace house in Sydney’s Potts Point focuses on a grand and gracefully spiralling stair that forms the pivotal junction of the old and new parts of the house. The staircase, spanning the width of the building, features delicate fan-like steel treads cantilevered from the central steel post and winding their way past six split levels, offset between the old and new sides of the house. The stair was conceived as the element that grafts the contemporary and new minimal structure to the refined, trimmed and formal older portion of the dwelling.Save this picture!Courtesy of smart design studioRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornDoorsdormakabaEntrance Doors – Revolving Door 4000 SeriesDoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsSpacious living areas and private zones open out from each side of the stair with one area per level alternating between the old and new building. Formal living, dining, kitchen and informal living; master suite, guest suite, study and laundry: each zone maintains a natural sense of privacy from the other through the offset in level yet maintains a sense of interconnection in the openness and movement created by the stair.

In contrast, the mainly white extension with the same gloss white floorboards, features a black stained timber-boarded joinery element across three levels. Bronze window frames, ironmongery and trims unite both portions of the three-storey home.

An addition to this, the bi-folding doors are concealed by joinery to provide a seamless connection to the tiered rear garden with mature pepper tree. This house offers extraordinary spaces complemented by confident forms, understated design and exquisite detail.Save this picture!floor plansProject gallerySee allShow lessSuperbowl Project / Supermachine StudioArticlesAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticles Share Save this picture!Courtesy of smart design studio+ 21 Share Australia “COPY” Architects: Smart Design Studio Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/234197/tusculum-residence-smart-design-studio Clipboard Projects CopyHouses•Sydney, Australia 2010center_img CopyAbout this officeSmart Design StudioOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasSydneyHouses3D ModelingAustraliaPublished on May 15, 2012Cite: “Tusculum Residence / Smart Design Studio” 15 May 2012.
