Queen’s Park House by Fox Johnston

By • Aug 29, 2013

Located in Sydney, Australia, Queen’s Park House is a private residence designed by Fox Johnston.

The home is open to the elements, allowing both natural light and fresh air freely in.

Queen’s Park House by Fox Johnston:

“The existing federation house is situated in Queens Park and benefits from a large north-east facing site.

The clients required a large family home for their growing family that would best utilise the expansive nature of the block as well as respect the integrity of the existing house. The project response involves grafting a two storey folded volume onto the rear of the existing shell – a parents retreat and study on the upper level, with a generous living area below. A central courtyard inserted between old and new provides relief and allows light and breezes to permeate. Living areas open onto a lush rear garden.”
