The house, 57 Tivoli Road, is situated on a corner block in the inner city Melbourne suburb of South Yarra.
Formally one of a series of attached row houses of disparate & eclectic housing styles, the exposed corner site meant a protective building was required for both visual and acoustic privacy, and the design seeks to create an enclosed shelter for the occupants, as well as forming an architectural bookend to the procession of houses which precede it.
This project was won in an international design competition to develop best practice in affordable housing. It has gathered many accolades and awards from the RIBA, Civic Trust and Housing Design awards amongst others, and has achieved Gold Building For Life Standard.

Pinnacle used BIM technology in the development of a bespoke Tesco Stores Ltd Supermarket design in Sheringham, Norfolk.
BIM allowed the design team to combine the architect’s and mechanical engineer’s 3D models along with their own steel, timber and reinforced concrete model created in Tekla. The BIM process provided a greater understanding of parametric relationships between disciplines, preventing co-ordination issues during the construction phase.
This project is renovation of an old skating stadium, keeping the existing timber structures erected in the early 70s. This structure was reinforced in order to support new loads and to fill the current norms, especially parasismic norms as Gap is located in the Alps. The structure is now a mix of timber, steel and concrete. Concrete was used to stabilize the overall structure. The structure includes circular concrete columns, each one meter in diameter.
