While living in Sydney Australia between 2004 - 2006 Miles Heine worked at Sam Crawford Architects NSW.
The Paddington House project forms an addition to an early 19th century sandstone cottage, thought to form part of the convict built stables of the nearby Juniper Hall, built in 1824 for Robert Cooper. The cottage is located at the end of what is now a quiet, narrow, dog-legged lane, a Georgian remnant in the largely Victorian inner city Sydney suburb of Paddington. To the rear of the site, a 5m high face brick wall is all that can be seen (or heard) of the busy Oxford Street retail strip.
A narrow entry courtyard is formed between the cottage and an adjacent Victorian terrace house.
The new kitchen and living room wrap the rear external wall of the original cottage, and the rough sandstone wall forms one side of the kitchen and dining room, contrasted by the white walls, concrete floors and exposed timber rafters of the new spaces.
