Description

Restrictive covenants, nevertheless properly intentioned, typically grow to be an impediment to vary. The Brisbane suburb of Clayfield has what architect Adrian Spence calls a “timber and tin” covenant. He selected to work across the requirement by putting the masonry on the within, a system higher generally known as reverse brick veneer. The substantial household house is designed round a courtyard and has 4 main masonry partitions, two to the boundaries and two forming the centre circulation area.
