The designs explore the atmospheric power of light and darkness, borrowed space, layers of privacy, and materiality, to create two textured urban dwellings in Newtown. A challenge was to improve upon the conventional terrace house type and to work within two very narrow and long sites.

Below is a (very tiny) preview into the often messy and creative process we go through to arrive at a cohesive design

Authors towards the design up to this point have included Russell Rodrigo, Candace C-Ching Lee, Min Dark, and Vesna Trobec.
