‘Twin’ to ‘Sibling’
When commissioned to renovate one of a pair of ‘twin’ Tzannes houses, it was imperative to demonstrate absolute respect to both the original houses, their architect, and their highly considered relationship to the street.
As such, all alterations to the envelope would be through the manipulation of infill elements only.
Without impacting the massing, street infill elements were relocated to create new double height spaces, a generous entry, kitchen courtyard, and completely revitalised interface between the street and house. Two small rear extensions created new garden interfaces, a new bay window, and planted roof terrace.
Internally, a new linear circulation incorporating the void, stair, and entry, established clarity of circulation and functional spaces, completely reconfiguring the spaces and connections within the house.
Through a series of selective changes, with minimal impact on the external massing, the function and feel of the house have been completely revitalised, thus turning it from a ‘twin’ to a ‘sibling’.
