A home in the suburbs of a busy city like Sydney can offer you an endless list of advantages and a long list of challenges. This happens especially if the plot limits the surface of the home`s footprint. Plywood House II is a fascinating residence envisioned by  Andrew Burges Architects nestled on a narrow long plot flanked by built homes on a rather busy street. The first and most important thing that challenged the architects has been the privacy line. The owners required a family home with aesthetic values, ample natural light,natural ventilation and privacy. The result was a smart combination of skylights, sliding privacy panels with wooden sluts and upper level windows nestled in the volume of a Sydney Residence.

The garden surrounding the home welcomes the pedestrian at the entrance magnificently whilst acting like a natural screen and visual barrier at the same time. The low profile of the home allows an open plan living area with incorporated kitchen and dinning area, the ensemble leading forward to the lovely backyard landscape. A spectacular opening above the kitchen allows light to pierce through the top floor as the unmistakable Tom Dixon Copper Pendant Lights are adding a bright metallic glint to the space. Long transitional corridors are doubling the storage space with built in shelves and mysterious hidden cabinets while an ergonomic home office is nestled in the rear.

On the top floor the home shelters bedrooms and bathrooms and even though the views are limited, the use of wood textures is offering the interior design a cozy and warm atmosphere. Functional, elegant and intimate, this Sydney home combines practicality with aesthetics magnificently.
