Kooyong Apartment in Australia by WOWOWA Architecture & Interiors

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

Article source: WOWOWA Architecture & Interiors

Glamour, colour and retiree joy in Glenferrie. This alteration to a spacious early 80s apartment celebrates the colours of its terracotta building and by re-orientating the kitchen area around a “V” shaped island acting as an informal table, creates a playful & functional contemporary gem to grown old in.

The brief: design us a joyful colourful space that will make us smile. We have many clients who have spent most of their time in heritage family homes and this is their chance to enjoy a fresh modern aesthetic. A purge of old furniture can be good for the soul and crisp white walls were a must for the​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ clients – a hangover from the elaborately multi-coloured Victorian decor of their former dwelling. The Loom rug became our colour muse. The 80s terracotta coloured building exterior set up the use of the beautiful orange Sydney blue gum timber, but the rug instantly gave that fabulous colour injection. A pair of WOWOWA’s own copper Rosella pendants hang in the living room – a lovely reminder as, like the couple, Rosella’s mate for life.

North Bondi House in Australia by Scale Architecture

Article source: Scale Architecture

Situated atop the Sydney sea cliffs on Ben Buckler point, the project responds to its unique topography, by closely following the natural contours of the site.

The house is split across two levels, taking full advantage of the views to both sides of the ridge, while a central void containing a sculptural steel stair, brings natural light deep into the plan.

Cricket Pitch House in Sydney, Australia by Scale Architecture

Article source: Scale Architecture

The Cricket Pitch House is a free standing dwelling in North Bondi, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

The client’s brief for a five bedroom house is centred on a garden suitable for backyard cricket for the growing family.

Located in a well-established suburban part of Sydney, the building’s form recalls the pitched roofs of its environs. The roof ridge runs diagonally across building, creating four different facades, each responding to their orientation.

Camberwell House in Australia by AM Architecture

Sunday, February 11th, 2018

Article source: AM Architecture

The site is located in Camberwell, Victoria on a unique L shape block, overlooking a leafy park. The existing architecture is rendered precast at first floor, sitting on external clinker brick planes at its base.  Its living areas were originally situated at first floor.

The brief was mostly pragmatic. More space for a large family, better zoning, and importantly to create a better connection to the outdoors but not lose the stunning views of the neighbouring parkland.

Curtain Cottage in Carlton North, Australia by Apparte Studio

Friday, February 9th, 2018

Article source: Apparte Studio

Passive energy design

The narrow house faces north and the front living area becomes flooded with sunlight, penetrating deep into the hallway.

The raised cathedral ceiling draws up much of the hot air during occasional hot summer periods, leaving the lower areas of the house cooler.

The existing house had good thermal properties to begin with. Most of both party walls are shared with a neighbour and there is good cross-flow ventilation to release heat when the front and rear doors are opened.

The large skylight over the dining area to the south saves hours of artificial lighting each day.

Elwood House in Australia by STAR Architecture

Thursday, January 25th, 2018

Article source: STAR Architecture 

Elwood House of Heaton Avenue sits within a tree-lined streetscape that comprises a mix of contemporary and heritage buildings within a council heritage overlay – predominantly Californian bungalows with red brick façades and terracotta tiled roofs, set back from the street with formal gardens and timber fences. Prior to renovation, Elwood House was a tired, 100-year-old example of these in poor condition but with bones intact. The client, who valued the history and style of the building wanted to invest in its retention and restoration. Details such as tuckpointing of façade brickwork, new cobbled bluestone driveway, reinstated timber fence and formal geometric front garden designed by Lachie Anderson Landscapes has strengthened the heritage fabric of the street. Internally, the restoration of leadlight windows, timber hardwood floors, ornamental skirtings, elaborate architraves and high ceilings with decorative plasterwork repainted with traditional heritage colours brings the building back to life and restores its formal grandeur.

Joyful House in Geelong, Australia by Mihaly Slocombe

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

Article source: Mihaly Slocombe 

Joyful House is a fun and brightly coloured addition to a weatherboard worker’s cottage on the outskirts of Geelong.

With the arrival of their third child, our clients asked us to open the rear of their house to provide a variety of light-filled spaces for their energetic young family. Our intervention retains original bedrooms, adding new services and a multifunctional living room that opens onto the generous back garden. The addition contrasts in colour and form to the original cottage and surrounding streetscape, a black-clad counterpoint to white weatherboard.
