PROJECT Crown St Terrace

ARCHITECT Studio Arkive

BUILDER Robert Plumb Build


Converting a 19th-century Surry Hills terrace into a modern home presented structural hurdles. The original undersized timbers and uneven floors necessitated extensive reinforcement to support the redesigned open spaces. Unforeseen issues during demolition called for creative on-site solutions. A unique suspended planter box using steel columns and intricate engineering integrates seamlessly with the existing brickwork on the upper floor. Tight space in the attic conversion required meticulous planning and collaboration for efficient assembly. Despite these challenges, the project successfully modernized the historic residence.
