58C Wells Street, Redfern.

Tucked away in a secluded inner city laneway, this award-winning terrace is one of only three in a boutique collection of heritage terraces reimagined by Baker Kavanagh Architects. The focus of the redesign highlights functionality, light and an honest expression of materials. Timber reclaimed from an old bowling alley on the floors and walls brings warmth and tactility to the interiors. Considered design pays homage to the site with a sleek industrial vibe achieved through the extensive use of off-form concrete and floor to ceiling glazing. The result is a series of homely spaces that cater to family life and effectively bring the outdoors in.

The three-storey abode is both raw and refined. The minimalist design references the work of Japanese architect Tadao Ando with its elegant simplicity and the dynamic way in which light transforms the interiors. All levels open out to private alfresco spaces with the entire top floor dedicated to a master retreat and capturing views to the city. Bathrooms are conceived as luxurious sanctuaries and finished in bluestone, the kitchen integrates seamlessly into the living spaces and there’s internal access to double garaging for the ultimate in stress-free city living.

Just 3km to Sydney CBD, Redfern is a suburb on the rise – an urban hotspot that’s evolved into a favoured destination for young professionals, downsizers, artists and urbanites. Sidewalk cafés, alfresco diners and pocket bars set the scene for a cosmopolitan inner city lifestyle. The urban landscape is renowned for its vibrancy, dynamism and creative vibe. 58C Wells Street delivers the perfect retreat from the fast pace of city living, a private haven for relaxing and entertaining footsteps to the buzz of downtown Sydney.
