The ambition for 102 The Mill designed by Carter Williamson Architects was to preserve the industrial and varied history of Balmain whilst creating an inspiring and generous home. It’s vital for our suburbs to grow and change, however there are opportunities to balance the use of existing industrial materials with a sensitive selection of new elements that continue to tell the story of the suburb, whilst adapting to new uses.

Spiegel Haus designed by Carter Williamson Architects is a thoughtfully crafted home in Sydney’s Inner West that celebrates the warmth, strength, and diversity of timber. The sculptural grey ironbark staircase sits at the very heart of this home, flowing out at each floor to help define the path of circulation. Photography by Brett Boardman.
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.
Gingerbread House is a project designed by Carter Williamson Architects. From the street, it seems nothing much has changed, as the Gingerbread House takes on its existing street facade composition and gable roof. Unlike its’ neighbouring counterparts on the street, the Gingerbread House has a strong street presence protruding forward with its face to the sidewalk. Photography by Ben Guthrie.
Concrete Blonde is a project designed by Carter Williamson Architects. 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.
