B&W house in Melbourne, Australia by Ben Callery Architects

Sunday, December 3rd, 2017

Article source: Ben Callery Architects

It’s not often that a Client approaches an Architect after they have chosen their Cabinet Maker.

But in this case the Owners had identified Cantilever Interiors as the designer & manufacturer for the Kitchen in their new extension before the rest of the house was even considered.

House in Hamilton, Australia by Tato Architects

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Article source: Tato Architects 

Intellect for Living in Semi-exterior Spaces that are Equivalent to interior

This residence is located in Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland, Australia. This region is home to the Queenslander — a traditional style of wooden stilted house complete with veranda. The characteristic veranda is an environmental interface for keeping sunlight off the buildings outer walls, and also serves to link residents to their city and community through acting as an entrance porch, and sometimes even a dining room or reception area for greeting guests. In Japan these roles used to be carried out by engawa loggias and earthen floors, but such spaces are now in the process of disappearing. People greatly value the type of lifestyle, which can take place in semi-outdoor spaces. I saw an example of this in a housing catalogue issued in 1939, in which indoor and semi-outdoor areas were displayed in different colors and both of their floor spaces noted down for readers.

Cross Street Bankstown in Australia by Tony Owen Partners

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Article source: Tony Owen Partners 

Bankstown Gardens is a 9 storey signature apartment development consisting of 54 units, in a landscaped garden setting.

The building is located on a prominent corner in Sydney’s Bankstown. The building is curved at the corner to reinforce the corner and present as a gateway in the streetscape. The dynamic design utilises a framework of sun control fins to create an exciting frieze on the façade. The diagonal geometry articulates the façade whilst allowing for large expanses of glazing and external planter devices. The transparency of this material is juxtaposed with the lightness of the white screens to create a vibrant and light façade.

Casa Crisp in New South Wales, Australia by buck&simple

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

Article source: buck&simple

Casa crisp is the transformation of a modest 1.5 bedroom brick veneer cottage into a light-filled, environmentally inclusive home for a young family of 6.

The original cottage has been transformed into a modern beach house with a sophisticated interplay of natural materials and considered volumetric arrangement. A rectilinear timber form now sits atop the original brick veneer podium keeping much of the existing dwelling intact.

The Condensery in Queensland, Australia by PHAB Architects

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

Article source: PHAB Architects

The 1920s packing shed is the only building remaining from the once prosperous Nestle condensed milk factory—an important centre of Toogoolawah’s economic and social life until the factory was destroyed by fire in 1951. The inception of the art gallery and workshop project began in 2012 with a grass -roots push from the community. The opening exhibition in December 2015 featured 31 local artists and a display by the Toogoolawah and Districts History Group, positioning the building as a catalyst for the ongoing cultural life of the region.

Fish Creek House in Victoria, Australia by Edition Office

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017

Article source: Edition Office

The house sits firmly along a winding ridgeline on the outskirts of the small township of Fish Creek. The home surrounds itself in a highly textured brickwork wall in response to its exposed position to strong local winds and a nearby country road. This long wall wraps the three nested, black timber pavilions of the house like a rough and coarse blanket and offers them shelter while they sit upon the lower wall edge and gaze out upon the undulating and extraordinary coastline of Wilsons Promontory. The three pavilions are pulled out from each other and from the northern edge of the rough brick wall to allow sunlight to slide deep into a series of sheltered and planted courtyards that offer immediate garden and deck relationships to the interior spaces. These interiors provide a warm and robust palette of timber-lined walls, black-pigmented concrete floors and black form-ply ceilings.
