Peekaboo House by Carter Williamson Architects

Peekaboo House designed by Carter Williamson Architects is named for the large box window that hangs from the level 1 addition, where the building is strategically shifted to take advantage of views towards nearby Punch Park. The Peekaboo window is symbolic of the generosity and joy embedded into the architecture. The window seat is accessed via a curved bridge, framing a generous curved void, and creates a moment for quiet reflection or play for the young family. From this spot, the best backyard in Balmain, Punch Park, can be enjoyed while still in the home. Photography by Brett Boardman.
