Pivot House

SSD Studio

The Pivot House project saw the renovation of a small 1850’s cottage in the Heritage Conservation Zone of Paddington. It gave new life through connecting the interior with the exterior and bringing light and a sense of space into the tiny, yet charming cottage, completely transforming the home and the interior with a deceptively simple design.

Pivot doors open as wide as possible and a scallion roof rakes dramatically to take in the sky with exposed rafters adding to the character of the addition. The design is respectful of the heritage character of the home, creating a transition that is both contemporary yet seamless.
