The Arena Apartments development in South Brisbane is unlike anything else in Brisbane. Designed for Sydney based developer, Galileo Group, the favourable site offered an elevated North East orientation with expansive views towards the city. Its distinctive form has been generated as a direct response of overlaying the functional requirements of the brief with the specific site constraints, including a new cross block link connection through to West End, and the requirement to maintain views through the site for the office building behind.

In Linköping’s new district Vallastaden, Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture has built plus-energy houses with solar cells on the roof. The solution means that the houses produce more energy than needed and it is possible to sell the surplus to electricity companies.

Clipper Wharf, a 57 homes residential development comprising of one, two and three bedroom apartments, is part of the first phase of the 220,000 sqm regeneration. This marks a new chapter in the site’s colourful history from its origins as a mercantile centre through the era of newspapers and printing of 1980s and beyond.

The interior is designed having in mind that the client is a successful, young business man. It was created with a bit of hedonism related to his passion for cigars. The dynamic lifestyle and the enjoyment of one’s private space are related to the functionality and comfort and are upgraded with the elegance of the black and white colour contrast. Solid Oak with natural finish and the detail of rough ropes disrupt the elegancy and make the apartment inviting and charming.

Radical Tabula Rasa
In 2006, Atelier Kempe Thill is commissioned to design Block 10 in the Moerwijk neighborhood of The Hague with eighty-eight apartments and twenty-seven terraced houses as the result of a negotiation procedure by Vestia, the largest building corporation in the Netherlands.
Moerwijk is a typical restructuring area with residential buildings from the nineteen-sixties, as also exist in many large cities in the Netherlands. Also here, the city and housing corporations agreed on the comprehensive demolition of the entire area rather than renovation of the existing buildings.

In the Bazillion apartment, YCL Studio has drawn a clear line between the day and the night program of this pied-à-terre for two, while simultaneously blurring the conventional division between the ‘wet’ and the ‘dry’ part of a dwelling. The compact apartment, which comprises 45 square meters, is essentially one open space divided into two by a single, ceramic-clad wall. The dwelling is located in a new residential building in the Old Town of Vilnius and has been commissioned by a frequent traveller, who uses it for short stays in the capital of Lithuania.

The southern part of the newly built Champs-Meunier compound holds 3 buildings. These are scattered following a terrace scheme and sit in a rural context whilst still standing on the border of the city center. The 47 flats are each composed of 3 to 5 rooms and are transversal. The flats are distributed around a central core, allowing the scheme to be simple and efficient. Moreover, large balconies outspread the living areas, thus permitting the interior / exterior boundary to vanish.

On a 12.5 meters wide by 25 meters long site, 8 apartments were planned, 2 for each floor of the building. They were to be arranged longitudinally and divided by three voids: a central cube for services and two lateral ones for vine-covered terraces that would work as filters between the public and private spaces.

The Melbourne Residences, is a 20 storey building consisting of 200 units in Brisbane’s Southbank. It contains retial and rooftop club including gym, pool, cinema and dining room. The tower plan is driven by the desire to maximise the oblique views from the units to the river and CBD. This results in a stepping form which maximises the number of units with access to the East. We derived inspiration from the ripple patterns created by the wind. This ripple orders the stepping of the façade reflecting the interplay of the environment on the façade. The tower has a unique undulating façade which ranges from zero to 4m. These facades contain operable glass screens to create wintergardens. These wintergardens provide a second skin to maximise thermal efficiency and reduce energy use. Melbourne street is becoming a fashionable retail address. We designed a 4 storey retail façade. Retail connects the street via a through site link to Fish Lane which is being revitalised by art installations and cafes as a bohemian centre. The clients brief was to create a superior residential address and activate the street with world class retail.
