Tranmere Court, a red texture brick classic in Drummoyne. Engaging presence to the street, not as good in the driveway-dominated side & rear setbacks. #3storeywalkup #3storeywalkupflats #redtexturebricks #housingtype #tranmerecourt #tranmerestreet #drummoyne #sydneyapartments #urbanhousing #streetpresence #frontgarden #sydneyarchitecture #australianhousing

Concept design for new pair of semis in Old Guildford - well away from the traditional architectural haunts. Definitely semi-attached, but each with central courtyard & internal voids. Interesting type, too rare. We think it’s an improvement over current state! Looking forward to discussing with @FairfieldCity - wish us luck #pairofhouses #duplex #semi #semidetachedhouses #semidetached #semiattached #coutyardhouse #housingtype #sydneyarchitecture
