I’m stalking in one of my favourite Sydney suburbs Surry Hill. It’s a tiny enclave right next door to the CBD full of character terraces, cool shopping and an almost endless choice of bars, cafes and restaurants. This completely re-imagined terrace has been all but gut renovated creating 5.1m ceilings and walls of concrete and cedar. Modern living hiding behind a historic facade. All that concrete may come in handy as the house sits on a busy road and noise might just be a problem. A little greenery out the back would help soften the concrete canyon effect over time. Link while it lasts.
