Dulwich Hill Duo is a new semi-detached dual occupancy located in Sydney’s lively Inner-West that maximises efficiency of space and elevates everyday living. The project offered an opportunity to not only provide equitable housing for our clients but contribute to improving housing density and diversity within the suburban fringes.
The clients, two brothers seeking to live side by side with their families, provided two separate briefs – one for a typical 4-bedroom family home, the other for a share-house arrangement. Working closely with each client, the design sought to rationalise these two programs while maintaining a consistent architectural language.
The result is a contemporary reinterpretation of the vernacular of the area while maintaining appropriate density and amenity to the streetscape. Face brickwork references the prevailing construction material of the area, whilst vaulted standing-seam clad roof forms adopt a contemporary take on the typical gable ends that feature along the streetscape.
