Flipped House by MCK Architects

MCK Architects designed the Flipped House in Sydney, Australia. Description from the architects: A 1960’s house has been replaced and reflected by a contemporary version of itself, with a focus that now engages as much on the surrounding garden as it does the panoramic CBD view. The original plan and massing were adapted + literally ‘flipped’ with garden elements to create a more expansive connection from inside to out. Details, fixtures and fittings are sensitive to the original home. Architects: MCK Architects Photography: Willem Rethmeier
