Marrickville house renovation in Sydney by Danny Broe Architect

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Article source: Danny Broe Architect

The brief: To create an Australian version of an English garden room at the rear of an existing Federation style brick house.

Planning strategy
The challenge of this design was to create a room with lots of glass that was still suited to the hot climate of Australia. We achieved this by reducing the glass in the roof to a reflective glass triangular skylight and the careful placement of external glass in relation to the direction of the sun.
