Twice as Nice
Within the mix of warehouses, detached brick bungalows, and dusty pubs of the Sydney, Australia, suburb of Alexandria, local architect David Langston-Jones has built an intricate and finely textured duplex that’s one part speculative development, one part home for the owner and architect. The building’s two small units (Langston-Jones occupies one and rents the other) benefit from a shared shady patio that makes the somewhat cramped quarters a leafy retreat.
