The clients had seen a house in
Clovelly designed by Rita Qasabian
and Christina Markham of Studio
Internationale which was up for
sale. They loved the house, but not
the location. So, they rang and asked whether,
if they found the right place, Rita and Christina
would do something for them. “We had some
wonderful communication,” Christina recalls,
“and when I got off the phone I said to Rita,
‘We have to work with these people – they’re
really lovely’.”
Almost two years passed, during which
time the clients had found a bungalow in North
Randwick, close to Centennial Park. They
had been living in it for a year and now had a
second young child. They were open to any
suggestions, mindful that the bungalow was
in a conservation area which meant that any
additions had to be consistent with the existing
streetscape. It was also clear that any new work
would need to be an addition to the rear because
it was a long, narrow rectangular site. This way
the pitched roof of the existing bungalow would
screen any rear addition from the street.
Christina observes that an architect often
learns more about their clients from what
they don’t say, rather than what they do say. In
this case, she infers that her clients preferred
quality over quantity, “and we wanted it to be
an expression of that”. She also observes that
they are very calm people and like harmony.
