The Bow Window Penthouse in Sydney, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Architects

Friday, April 1st, 2016

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Architects

In a first for Luigi Rosselli Architects the camera has left the ground to pan over the penthouse additions to a classic Art Deco style apartment block built in the late 1920s.  The penthouse’s defining feature is a bow window in the corner of the building facing the intersection of the street that reaches out to create a dialogue with the passers-by in the avenue below.  The bow window is also reminiscent of windows found in the Captain’s Quarters at the stern of historic ships; borrowing from naval architecture was appropriate for the seaside location of Bondi Beach.  The penthouse is separated from the existing brick unit block by a concrete slab and spandrel, this is a fire protection requirement.  A wave of metal roofing conceals the upper level of the penthouse from the street.  The wave dovetails towards the view, culminating in a balcony, of which two were designed but only one was allowed by the Council.

Article source: Dion Seminara Architecture

Queenslanders are homes built up off the ground which are often falsely thought to be naturally cool in summer. They are actually designed to keep the area under the home cool. The homes themselves aren’t well insulated and can get quite hot.

THAT House in Seddon, Australia by AUSTIN MAYNARD ARCHITECTS

Saturday, February 27th, 2016

Article source: AUSTIN MAYNARD ARCHITECTS 

The site is neighboured by huge houses. We were asked to provide the family with ‘just the right amount of space’. By creating large openings and generous connections to the garden we aimed to make this modest-sized house feel abundant and broad. The result is a home that is almost half the size of its neighbours without compromising liveability.
