The Cut-away Roof house is an addition to a semi-detached interwar house on Sydney’s lower north shore.
Sited in an undulating suburban landscape of tile and tin roofs, the project is a contemporary 2 storey addition with a simple C-shaped plan.
The living spaces are oriented around the courtyard, cut-away from the ridge shaped form, bringing light deep into the house.
Clad entirely with AFS certified north coast hardwood timbers, the ventilated facade provides exceptional passive thermal performance.
