Alterations & Additions | Double Bay House by Tribe Studio Architects

The Look

Staking it’s claim as the ‘cool kid on the block’ amongst the mock-Georgian McMansions and a row of tiny Victorian cottages, this Double Bay House is a breath of fresh air in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. Designed by Tribe Studio Architects, the brief for the home required the architects to develop a loose-fit portrait of the kind of person who would buy a modern home in the traditionally conservative neighbourhood of Double Bay.

In response, Hannah Tribe and her team set about designing a home to on sell – the type that looked forward to the future rather than being bound to past traditions or styles. The result is a beautifully light, bright and structurally-clever home that uses a simplified yet rigorous geometry to bring all the elements beautifully together.
