    Sydney Architecture Festival

    Philip Thalis recently gave a talk at the Architect’s Bookshop, as part of the Sydney Architecture Festival, dedicated to the issue of Affordable Housing. The talk detailed the history of affordable housing projects in Sydney, including the important work of the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust in Millers Point – making the point that the public sector has been a leader in excellent affordable housing throughout our city’s history – and should reprise that role.

Very pleased that our mini-house on a laneway behind heritage terraces just approved by @innerwestcouncil. Just 70m2 in area with a loft bedroom, the house nestles around & under a mature jacaranda tree. #lauraharding #secondarydwelling #minihouse #lanewaydwelling #grannyflat #compacthouse #lightweightconstruction #jacaranda

#SydneyTerraceHouses 6 + 1? Curious case of fine group in Peel St Kirribilli, with stepping row of 6 houses (nos15-25) then a single freestanding variant at no13. Same facade but hipped roof & different fireplaces. Did someone change their mind? @north.sydney #kirribilli #peelstreet #terracerow #freestandingterrace #steppingrow #steppedterraces #Sydneyterraces #urbanhousing #sydneyarchitecture
