Pod House in Victoria, Australia by Nic Owen Architects

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Article source: Nic Owen Architects

As a response to the site, environment and client’s requirements the pod extension is a true expression of ‘form following function’. A modern structure is not restricted with a period (Victorian) architectural language but is free to respond honestly to the brief, site and restraints.

Sorrento House 1 in Victoria, Australia by Vibe Design Group

Sunday, September 18th, 2016

Article source: Vibe Design Group

Sorrento House 1, the latest coastal project from Vibe Design Group, is the Australian Beach house reborn. The building presents a modest, yet sinuous face to passers by. A well-honed palette of materials is introduced, their application modulated masterfully and subtly; the mark of an experienced hand. Timber battening twists to become shuttering for windows behind. A cast concrete wall articulates the point of entry. A low-slung, angular roof constructed from 18m sheets of custom Colorbond is punctuated by a cast concrete chimney; stylish protection from any seaward weather.

Port Melbourne Football Club Sporting and Community Facility in Victoria, Australia by k20 Architecture

Friday, September 16th, 2016

Article source: k20 Architecture

Port Melbourne Football Club (PMFC) has a proud history spanning 140 years, which makes it one of the oldest sporting clubs in Australia.

Completed in 2015, the new facility stands at the edge of the playing pitch, taking advantage of the elevated aspect of the site. This elevation and siting is natural, and allows a corporate, ‘private style’ approach to be incorporated into the design and function of the building that ensures a direct line of sight of the game on the field. The project focus was to deliver a new typology in sporting and community facility design that would enable the cultural and financial success of the club.

Project M in Brisbane, Australia by Studio 15b

Friday, September 16th, 2016

Article source: Studio 15b

This home was built in the 1950’s and over the years passed down the generations of the one family. Since originally built, the home had been altered in an ad-hoc way, and so the time had come for it to be stripped back to basics, raised and built-in and under for today’s modern lifestyle of the current family needs. This allowed Studio 15b to work with a clean slate which enabled us to re-orientate the spaces to best suit the northern rear aspect – creating the distinct sculptural M roof form.

Cave Restaurant in Sydney, Australia by Koichi Takada Architects

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

Article source: Koichi Takada Architects

We aim to change the way we ate and chat in restaurants. The acoustic quality of restaurants contributes to the comfort and enjoyment of a dining experience.

We have experimented with noise levels in relationship to the comfort of dining and the ambience a cave like environment can create. The timber profiles generate a sound studio atmosphere, and a pleasant ‘noise’ of dining conversation, offering a more intimate experience as well as a visually interesting and complex surrounding.

Chamfer House in Victoria, Australia by Mihaly Slocombe Architects

Sunday, August 7th, 2016

Article source: Mihaly Slocombe Architects

Chamfer House revisits a post and beam dwelling designed in 1977 by Kevin Borland, the Hildebrand House. It sits within an established garden on Oliver’s Hill, a crucible of late modernism overlooking Port Phillip Bay. Our clients approached us soon after moving in. They wanted to protect the timber ceilings, exposed Oregon structure and fingerjointed window frames they loved, while also updating the house to suit their young family.

Waitpinga Retreat in Australia by Mountford Williamson Architecture

Saturday, July 30th, 2016

Article source: Mountford Williamson Architecture

This house provides a retreat from the city, allowing its owners to enjoy the magnificent coastal bushland setting and time with family and friends. This is a true holiday home providing casual and informal living within flexible spaces, and reflects the owner’s desire to live as sustainably as possible.

The house needed to be flexible, at times a single bedroom retreat and other times expanding to house larger groups of family and friends.

Blake Street Residence in Victoria, Australia by B.E Architecture

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

Article source: B.E Architecture

The Blake Street Residence was intended to investigate a typology of coastal architecture which responded primarily to the ruggedness of its Australian landscape setting.

This dictated elevating the house above the ground plane through the construction of a massive stone podium. The choice of Maffra stone and its rudimentary construction relates to similar stonework seen in many of the historic buildings in the surrounding area.
