CplusC is an Architects and Builders Company.  Their desire is to create sustainable and innovative designs that are well-crafted. Moreover, there are not many firms in Sydney that offer both architecture and building services.  Among their former and current projects there are: Kensington Residence, Tempe Residence, Newtown Residence and Leichhardt Residence.


The Leichhardt Residence was build on a sub-division of the land, next to the original 1970 house. Its design was based on an effective and modern model. The exterior of the house is made of concrete. In this way it is sturdy and secure. Moreover, the colors of the concrete create a nice contrast with the timber that was used for the interior of the house.


There are many large windows used in the design of the house. This fact leads to luminous living areas that appear to be very spacious. The furniture is modern and matches the design of the house perfectly.

There are many versatile courtyard spaces in the plan of the house. Thanks to them, the owner can either start gardening and plant some flowers, or can merely enjoy some quality time outside.
