Beautiful Contemporary Home: The Left-Over-Space House by Cox Rayner Architects
Australian architectural firm Cox Rayner Architects has created the Left-Over-Space House. Completed in 2012, this contemporary home in Paddington, Australia, shows how a small narrow lot can be used effectively to create a comfortable living space. In the three metre wide frontage to the old cottage is a new study designed through its portals and window boxes to engage the street. Where the site slightly opens up behind the cottage to an open, roofed and screened staircase atrium forms the primary social space. A small bridge is a library connecting it to kitchen and living room, and beyond to stacked bedrooms and a stair to a roof deck.
