SUBURB / Glebe

ARCHITECT / Mackenzie Pronk Architects


This project in Glebe was a complete renovation to the existing courtyard, including a new pool and ground floor bathroom. With a neighbouring terrace in close proximity we were thrown several challenges with accommodating a generous lap pool between the two buildings. The two terraces were carefully braced whilst the excavating was undertaken around the footings then the pool was finally poured and finished in tumbled travertine. The existing bathroom was given a new life with exposed copper pipework, burnished concrete bath and basin that would patina over time whilst complimenting the existing heritage building.
