Care Implant Dentistry in Sydney, Australia by Pedra Silva Architects

Friday, April 17th, 2015
Article source: Pedra Silva Architects

On one of Sydney’s high-end retail streets we were invited to design a high-level state of the art dental clinic. The actual space and the brief provided by the client posed a few challenges that got us thinking. An aesthetic is something that may be mistaken as an additional almost cosmetic layer to a design, but in our projects, the aesthetic is a clear response to problem solving.
In this particular case the client requested two receptions with two entrances that could function separately but without compromising the sense of spaciousness and its relationship with people passing by. In the same space we also had a stubborn structural column that seemed to impose itself in all the attempts of trying to integrate it into the design. The solution? Answering the brief and magically making the column disappear!

The project involved the adaptive reuse of Pumphouse Point into a wilderness retreat.

The brief was to design a new dwelling to accommodate a family of 4 while also including flexible spaces which can change as the children grow and the needs change.

Hampton/Queenslander house renovation in Brisbane, Australia by Baahouse + Baastudio

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

Article source: Baahouse + Baastudio

Set amongst a leafy hilly area in Brisbane’s inner city suburb Norman Park, Greg Taylor and Hayley Lewis approached Baahouse + BaaStudio to assist them for ideas and planning in renovating their existing 1880’s Queenslander family home. Their existing house is typical of many Queenslanders, whilst they have some aesthetically pleasing features’, the house was hidden from the street down a dark path, leading to a small cold house requiring a lot of upkeep and maintenance to bring it up to today’s modern living standards. Adding to the fact the house was cold and dark, there were many unusable spaces that could not be utilised, and the dining and lounge family areas were cramped and small.
