Little Tokyo, Randwick

A former Farriers’ workshop, built circa 1890, Little Tokyo’s design is influenced by the city of Tokyo, where land is scarce and buildings are designed for very small sites. The result, a contemporary, visually beautiful home to satisfy the needs of contemporary living. Features include a north elevation; two storey design, laneway access and views over neighbouring gardens.

Entry is via the original roller shutter opening, now a sliding zinc door that buffers the laneway. The living/dining area maintains the building’s volume and a new courtyard garden opens up the northern wall allowing light to enter the interior. Bathroom/bedroom insertions are set back further within the building to create a second north-facing courtyard, allowing light and ventilation to all rooms. The simple and carefully detailed palette of materials – plywood, steel, and brickwork – act as both structure and finish.

Location House in Randwick available for photoshoots, filming and corporate events.
