J+B House

Project Updates

J+B House construction finished!

Surrounded by a variety of architectural styles and roof forms, the scale and proportion of our renovation is a sympathetic composition that draws from traditional elements and responds both in replication on the existing building and contrast on the sensitive contemporary addition.⁠

The facade of the house has been restored to its original Victorian aesthetic with traditional filigree for the balustrade and its surrounds reinstated. The addition sits respectfully off the existing terrace leaving a light well over a consolidated entry space enhancing the character of the building while rectifying earlier cumbersome additions to present a singular and cohesive architectural expression.⁠

Courtyards connect the various living spaces with each other and the garden, they also serve to allow solar access to the spaces around and behind them creating useable private outdoor space. Living spaces are designed as an intrinsic extension of the garden which is larger and more useable increasing the amenity of it and the indoor spaces around it.⁠

Fuse Architects acknowledges the First Nations peoples, the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation, as the Traditional Custodians of the diverse lands where we live, work, and create. We admire their deep and enduring connections to the land, sea, and community. We are committed to meaningful dialogue, as we work together to honour the past and shape a harmonious future. We pay our respects to the wisdom of their Elders, past, present, and emerging.
