Newtown Lighthaus is a project designed by Sandbox Studio®. Located in an increasingly densified area within its namesake of Newtown, the inner west Sydney home weaves a series of additions in amongst the old. Ensuring the new works are bedded in a sensitivity to context, an extensive study of the established built form and architectural urban language was undertaken, to ensure the response was conducive and appropriate. Being surrounded by such an eclectic coming together of styles and architectural eras, the home needed to be anchored in place, and through the creation of a new sense of identity, Newtown Lighthaus takes position.

Public spaces make up the length of the rear side of the house with expansive views and access to the backyard, pool, and terraces. Photography by John doe.
The architecture by O&A London of this apartment – in a historic building – presented a real challenge. The space is not a standard shape and features unusually shaped bay windows and asymmetrical geometry of the outside walls. We are very proud that we managed to overcome all the challenges and turn them into advantages in this project. We created an unusual open plan living room space which is connected to the dining room and kitchen. At the same time every area looks like a separate room. Photography by O&A London.
