MAC Interactive Architects specified weathered timber boards for the exterior of this narrow Sydney residence, Stirling House. The three-storey building features an asymmetric profile that is at its highest on the building’s south-west corner. Inside, the ground floor is split into two halves – the front is a secluded living room overlooking the street, while the rear space houses a combined kitchen and dining space that can be opened out to the garden. Two equally sized bedrooms with accompanying en-suites occupy the second floor, alongside a double-height study squeezed into a narrow space. An eclectic selection of furnishings are accompanied by the owners’ artworks and other curiosities.
