Queens Park House is a new home in a heritage conservation area in Sydney’s East. The existing house on the site was not a heritage item, however its façade was part of a consistent row of houses and exemplary as a part of this larger context. The modern new home is a folded roof form derived from the angles of the existing slate roof. The abstract space created is reflected inside the house as a dramatic folded stair void connecting the two levels. The remainder of the house is contemporary, light filled in contrast to the original. Large open plan living overlooking the new pool is completed with beautiful landscaped areas.
