Modest addition transforms small suburban semi into modernist exemplar of accessibility and sustainability 

The Clovelly House is a three bedroom, south facing semi-detached residence, on a 234m2 site in Clovelly, an inner city suburb of Sydney, Australia, focused on meeting the very specific needs of a client with mobility issues. The open plan design for the house is organised around the staircase and central void, which acts as a pivot around which the house and site operate. These spaces accommodate not only the living areas and home office but also the owners’ extensive library and art collection. The house benchmarks water management technology in domestic architecture, including rainwater harvesting, grey water reuse and a vertical ‘green wall’ grey water treatment system, the first of its kind in Australia, resulting in a minimum 75% reduction in town water usage.
