Hampton/Queenslander house renovation in Brisbane, Australia by Baahouse + Baastudio

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

Article source: Baahouse + Baastudio

Set amongst a leafy hilly area in Brisbane’s inner city suburb Norman Park, Greg Taylor and Hayley Lewis approached Baahouse + BaaStudio to assist them for ideas and planning in renovating their existing 1880’s Queenslander family home. Their existing house is typical of many Queenslanders, whilst they have some aesthetically pleasing features’, the house was hidden from the street down a dark path, leading to a small cold house requiring a lot of upkeep and maintenance to bring it up to today’s modern living standards. Adding to the fact the house was cold and dark, there were many unusable spaces that could not be utilised, and the dining and lounge family areas were cramped and small.

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.
