Do it once and do it right. That was the attitude our clients brought to the home. Our response, Concrete Blonde, is designed as an architectural jewellery box that unfolds and reveals itself from a tight 5m wide heritage facade with a south-facing yard into a generous, light-filled, and warm home.
