#SydneyTerraceHouses Magnificent Georgina Terrace in Georgina St Newtown, one of grandest rows ever built in Sydney (just compare to neighbouring row houses to north) Sits partly opposite Hollis Park, with which it was developed, a too rare version of great English park-front terraces. Memorable planting of median with Moreton Bay Figs in Georgina St. Central pediment & sunburst, Latin dedication ‘Vis Unita Fortior’ (image 6), Corinthian pilasters on decorated ends of party walls, huge rear yards 15 houses in the row, towers at both ends, yet as we shall see nowhere near longest row in Sydney ... #georginastreet #georginastreetnewtown #hollispark #terracehouses #rowhouses #sydneyterraces #moretonbayfigs #streetfacade #streetdesign #endterrace #terracetower #sunburstmotif #centralpediment #newtownterraces #grandterraces #decoration #corinthianpilasters #urbanhousing #sydneyarchitecture #architecture @cityofsydney

#SydneyTerraceHouses On City Rd opposite Victoria Park, grand and exuberant Art Nouveau influenced terrace house, presumably c1900. Was it a new build or a build on to the front of an existing terrace? Part of a regular subdivision (on the plan & aerial, its the one that steps forward) Fine brickwork, sandstone and terracotta, boldly scaled elements, very well resolved architecturally. Heritage listed, seems to be flats currently @cityofsydney #terracehouse #rowhouse #streetfacade #streetwall #urbanhousing #sydneyterraces #C19thhousing #artnouveaufacade #individualterrace #brickwork #terracotta #sandstone #bowwindow #insetbalcony #scallopedbay #tower

Open house at #passivhaus. New apartment building @ 7 Wyndham St in Alexandria, the 1st such building to achieve passivhaus certification in Southern Hemisphere. @oliver_steele_architect with @CloverMoore speaking at launch Sure there will be lots of opinions on such sealed buildings suitability to Sydney climate, but other benefits here too in terms of e-w orientation, counter to noise & grit, in response to tough, small footprint site on busy road. Real architectural qualities throughout #passivedesign #designprinciples #sealedbuilding #insulation #tripleglazing #Apartmentbuilding #sydneyapartments #urbanhousing #architectureofhousing #wyndhamstreet #alexandriasydney #sydneyarchitecture @cityofsydney
