Stealth House in Sunshine Coast, Australia by Teeland architects

Saturday, December 5th, 2015

Article source: Teeland architects

Our clients purchased a wonderful property on Australia’s Sunshine Coast.  The land was situated high up on a ridge with undulating rain forest, creeks and waterfalls.  The property faced east with panoramic views out to the pacific ocean. We were enamored with the beauty of the property and wanted to design a house that not only complimented the natural landscape but would be come part of it and provide the owners with an intimate connection with their surrounding environment.

Friday, October 30th, 2015

Article source: Andrew Maynard Architects

How do you create a home in 4.5m? It’s tricky, but a lot of fun.

A family of four had lived in this modest, ageing house for almost eight years. As the children neared their teenage years something had to be done. Abandoning their home and moving elsewhere was not an option as the family was an important part of a thriving community.

Code Black in North Melbourne VIC, Australia by Zwei Interiors Architecture

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

Article source: Zwei  Interiors Architecture

At 119 Howard, the focus is on the space as a stage in the theatre of life. Set in what was originally a mechanics workshop, 119 Howard st, North Melbourne is the next chapter in Joseph Haddad’s Melbourne coffee empire. The space is a warm tonal interplay of existing spatial elements with natural light and materiality, and uses residential references to create an environment that is a ’home away from home’.
