Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects 

Benelong Crescent apartments are inspired by the sinuous forms of Erich Mendelsohn’s Einstein Tower in Potsdam, completed in the 1920’s. The apartments cascade down the hill to follow the contours and the curved terraced balconies are shaped by the irregular boundaries of the site, rounded off by the prevailing winds.

St. Peter’s Renovation in ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA by Glasshouse Projects

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016

Article source: Glasshouse Projects

A contempory double story extension clad in zinc boldly pushes the boundaries of this family home in the conservative Adelaide suburb of St Peter’s. Whilst the 5m hipped roof ensures reference to the front of the home, the extension proudly asserts itself over the sloping block, seamlessly connecting to an outdoor timber framed deck, pitched high over an infinity above ground pool. The overall result is a confident statement about modern architecture’s place in such a historic context- it can create a wonderful contrast, redefining our appreciation of ‘elegance’ itself.

Waterfront Palazzo Eleven Years On in Sydney, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Architects

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Architects

Like a good wine good houses age well, improving with the passing of the years.  When compared to the original photographs, taken by Richard Glover in 2004 http://luigirosselli.com/residential/coolong-road , the recent reshoot of this waterfront palazzo shows how the lush Will Danger designed garden has become part of the architecture and how gracefully the building has aged, all the finishes are still fresh and faultless.

Mosman Bay House in Perth, Australia by Iredale Pedersen Hook Architects

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

Article source: Iredale Pedersen Hook Architects

The Mosman Bay House explores two contrasting spatial experiences, one is dynamic and fluid and one is passive and contemplative. One focuses on the distant views to the river and city and one is embedded with the garden. This Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde quality responds to the programmatic requirements of active and communal spaces; living, dining, cooking and private spaces; sleeping, study and bathing.
