On 2008, Turco Associates have creates an awesome duplex dwellings which been renovated from the existing house near the beach in Clovelly, New South Wales. The central part of an existing brick dual occupancy was maintained and add two three storey volumes to the north and south of the block, aims to allows natural light to pass between the two story volumes and filter down into the living and bedrooms throughout the residences. The architects have had to follow heritage guidelines throughout especially in regards keeping portions of the existing structure and expressing their materiality in the house. Sandstone blocks have been recycled from the existing dwelling on the block and reused to construct a plinth for the house to sit on. The party wall between the two dwellings has been expresses not only by the extended timber slat wall but also through the landscaping at the front and rear of the property and is used as a line of symmetry throughout the design.
