Annangrove, NSW – The Hills District. The latest project by Sandbox Studio is a compact ‘forever house’ designed for a couple of retirees. Its environmental design and space-efficient planning make excellent use of the site, allowing them to live near their children and give them room to roam.
Around one in five Australians* is now in a multi-generational living arrangement, where mum and dad move back in with their adult kids.
With Fundamental House, Sandbox Studio has reinvented the ‘granny flat’ as a super cool, small separate dwelling, no bigger than a modest apartment. [*Reported in ABC News, Aug 2018]
