Lions Court, Erskineville is a project designed by Nathalie Scipioni Architects. The narrow and long site of a one-level, two-bedroom, one-bathroom terrace house in Erskineville presented constraints that needed to be addressed in its redesign to transform it into a three-bedroom, two-bathroom two-story home. The new design includes a U-shaped kitchen that maximizes the use of benchtop space while also serving as a breakfast table or socializing area with the addition of two stools. The kitchen joinery extends to the underside of the new timber stairs, creating a seamless and multifunctional piece that includes cabinetries, a sink, a dishwasher, a fridge, laundry, and storage. A small timber shelf library wall links the kitchen and the corridor, serving both functional and aesthetic purposes to match the timber of the feature stairs. Photography by Lisa Loi.

When Nathan Fell of NFA (Nathan Fell Architecture) first spoke with Eric Roland, the client for this New Orleans front porch addition, there were a few things about the project summary that would normally have stood out as red flags. The budget was only $50k, the project scope was very small, and it was going to be DIY (Roland was to self-perform as the General Contractor). However, it was evident from the start that Roland had such an infectious enthusiasm for design and a vision for what this project could achieve that despite the difficulties, it was difficult to say no.
