Balmain House in Sydney, Australia by Carter Williamson Architects (designed using Vectorworks)

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

Article source: Carter Williamson Architects

The original 1860’s home sits modestly on its block. Humble and unassuming, its appearance defines its cultural significance; the workers cottage preserves a ‘moment’ in the rich, blue-collar heritage and character of Balmain. Preserving and restoring the integrity of the existing cottage as part of the streetscape and the eclectic, urban fabric of Balmain was always fundamental to the design. Any addition needed to be sympathetic, sensitively yet distinctively bridging the divide between new and old.

Station Hyllie in Malmö by Metro Arkitekter

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

Article source: Metro Arkitekter

Hyllie is the first station you reach when travelling by train from Copenhagen’s Kastrup airport and is therefore Malmö’s gateway to Copenhagen. This is no traditional station building – we have been working with other elements instead. The large round roof (diameter 45 m) – lit from below using uplights – hovers like a UFO above the station entrance. The roof is perforated by 52 round lantern lights which allow daylight to penetrate right down to the platforms, thereby eliminating any sense of an underground station.

NEW YORK: A two-year search for the ideal NYC location led producer/engineer Louis Benedetti to a former bank building on one of Soho’s chicest streets.  A collaboration with a NY contractor resulted in a handsome, ingeniously designed studio with, when the dust settled, unanticipated isolation issues. A call to the Walters-Storyk Design Group provided invaluable design recommendations, which culminated in Thompson Studios the realization of a dream, and the introduction of a perfectly tuned and leak free recording option for local and international artists.
