Surry Hills House by Benn + Penna Architecture

Surry Hills House is a minimalist residence located in Sydney, Australia, designed by Benn + Penna Architecture. The project involves significant alterations and additions to a compact inner-city terrace, including new bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, courtyard and living spaces. The design locates the new bedroom and bathrooms spaces above an open-plan living area that opens onto intimate garden spaces at either end of the property. A delicately detailed steel stair rises through the middle of the building and drops natural light from a large skylight above into the centre of the house.
