Ian Moore's univeristy days Darlinghurst terrace commission for sale
Staff reporterDecember 7, 2020

During his final year of his architecture degree in the late 1980s, Ian Moore was commissioned to work on a Darlinghurst terrace.

The terrace had been a burnt out squatters den with Moore remembering climbing over people sleeping on mattresses in the graffiti covered rooms.

His reconfiguration of the terrace into two separate spaces took four years.

Its exposed rear steel-framed wing with spiral staircase has become an architectural landmark, built in stark contrast to the street facade which was restored to its original Victorian detail.

Davis House featured in 100 Amazing Sydney Homes.

The Surrey Street property is now for sale as a large family home offering with four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a three car garage.

1st City Real Estate Double Bay agent Julian Hasemer calls the home a "triumph of design in a fashionable urban village setting."
