House Eadie is a heritage listed Federation workers’ cottage in Surry Hills, Sydney. It’s a house built in the 70s and renovated by local firm Tribe Studio. The brief from the client was to create a house that is at once toddler-friendly and also a great house for entertaining adults. So the architects rearranged the spaces around the existing courtyard, allowing northern light to enter the house. The original decorative brickwork of the front of the house was partially revealed by partially removing layers of paint. Storage is tucked in wherever possible to accommodate the needs of raising a toddler while allowing space to entertain adults. Thanks to lots of natural wood of warm shades the atmosphere is very pleasant and cozy.
