Cylindrical Henley House in Victoria, Australia by Jackson Clements Burrows Pty Ltd Architects

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

Article source: Jackson Clements Burrows Pty Ltd Architects

Barwon Heads is in a period of significant change. Heritage overlays currently protect older fishing shacks whilst the less significant built fabric remaining in the seaside town is progressively being redeveloped and architecture is now significantly contributing to the evolution of this small coastal township. In this case a young family engaged JCB to design their new permanent residence which would replace a dilapidated 1950’s two storey house that was beyond repair. A sculptural building form emerged from the clients brief which jokingly requested a planetarium as an inclusion. This led to the exploration of circular forms and resulted in a circular skylight in the first floor living areas as a direct reference however the house was primarily conceived to immerse itself over time as a natural extension of the Ti-tree dominated landscape. The house is wrapped in as skin of vertical cedar battens (providing privacy and solar protection) which appear to emerge from the front fence intentionally confusing the relationship between built form and landscape.

Stirling House in Sydney, Australia by Mac-Interactive Architects

Thursday, December 18th, 2014

Article source: Mac-Interactive Architects

A new-build house replacing two very narrow 2-storey weather-board cottages on the same lot but in a very derelict stateAfter much discussion with Heritage it was felt that it would not be possible to restore them to anything other than museum status as they could not be brought up to current BCA standards. It was also felt that they were not of that much interest and very little original fabric existed. A fairly unique opportunity presented itself to insert a contemporary building into a heritage conservation area – allowing for a future reading of this particular period of Sydney’s development.

Clovelly House in Sydney, Australia by rolf ockert design

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Article source: rolf ockert design

Having seen some of our earlier work the owners of this extraordinary oceanfront site invited us to submit ideas about what a new house there could look like. They had lived in a simple cottage on the site for several years before and therefore had an intimate familiarity with the advantages and disadvantages of living in this spectacular but exposed spot.

The design process, complex due to several defining key issues inherent to the site, ended up taking us through some radically different sketch options before settling on the one that was finally pursued.
