Like Mary Poppin’s magic bag, this terrace contains hidden surprises!


This terrace is a forever home for a family of four. They love the inner west and they know that space is the prime commodity, especially in Balmain where the property size tends to be smaller - so every element needed to have a double purpose.

The stair brings light to the living space. The first floor bathroom acts to funnel hot air from the ground floor, out through a skylight in the roof. The dining space works accommodate all the kids homework activities - this is a house which works like a puzzle to create spaces for the family to stretch out!
