46 North Avenue in Leichhardt, Australia by Rolf Ockert Design

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

Article source: Rolf Ockert Design 

The site is located in a heritage conservation area that is fiercly protected by Leichhardt council. Being in one of the few streets in the Inner West Sydney that are still largely original in their streetscape, any alteration or addition was bound to be somewhere between controversial and impossible.

Being only about 100m2 in size, the existing free-standing house was far too small for its intended use as a home for a young family with children. The only way to accommodate the intended brief was to build a two storey addition, something that did not exist in the area.

ZING PR in Surry Hills, Australia by Rolf Ockert Design

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

Article source: Rolf Ockert Design

Design Statement

Our practice was approached by a client interested in purchasing a neglected warehouse in a run down but up-and-coming area of Surry Hills, south of Sydney’s CBD, to accommodate a growing PR company. Following an inspection and a quick concept design the client decided to purchase the property and commission ROD for the fitout.

Red Rock HQ in Sydney, Australia by Rolf Ockert Design

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

Design Statement

In 2011 we were approached by a client we had built a house for to design the new office for his company. In his opinion the house we had designed for him is still “the best house in the world” and he expected nothing less for his new office fit out. Indeed the only design brief other than the number of workstations to be accommodated was that it had to be “funky”.

South Coogee House in Australia by Rolf Ockert Design

Saturday, August 17th, 2013

Article source: Rolf Ockert Design

The client had just purchased the site, a small but stunningly located oceanfront property with panoramic views of the Pacific, when they were introduced to me. As I had just gone out on my own after many years as Associate Director at a successful mid-size firm I didn’t have much to show that I could prove as “my own”.  After a detailed selection process the client chose to engage me for the design of their new house, probably based on a lot of trust in my ability and the fact that we got on very well on a personal level.

Brisbane Ferry Terminals Post-Flood Recovery in Brisbane, Australia by Cox Rayner Architects

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

Article source: Cox Rayner Architects

This soon-to-be-built project resulted from a design competition to conceive a new ferry terminal suite in the wake of the devastating 2011 Brisbane floods.

The aim of the project was to see if it were possible to design a flood-resilient ferry terminal to replace the 20 destroyed by the impact of water pressure and of debris crushing against the gangways and piles of the former terminals.

The Left-Over-Space House in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia by Cox Rayner Architects

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

Article source: Cox Rayner Architects

This narrow private house demonstrates what can be achieved on the myriad of ‘left-over’ spaces in inner cities, such as disused easements or parking lots.  In this case, a 3 metre wide tiny caretaker’s cottage, adjoining a Heritage Hall has been recycled and linearly extended into a family house for parents and two children.
The designers and owners Casey and Rebekah Vallance, two young talented architecture graduates who had topped their year at the University of Queensland, fell in love and married, bought the cheap, redundant lot in 2003.

West End Ferry Terminal in Brisbane, Australia by COX Rayner Architects

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

Article source: COX Rayner Architects

The West End Ferry Terminal is a small project that was designed to simultaneously generate a new typology for Brisbane’s Citycat Terminals and act as a sheltered social gathering space at the end of one of Brisbane’s historic riverfront parks, one endeared in the hearts of the West End community.
As a result, the whole conception of the terminal was subject to many community consultation events, most originally opposing removal of an existing brick post-war facility which had insurmountable CEPTED issues.

Silk Apartments in Pyrmont, Australia by Tony Caro Architecture

Friday, July 19th, 2013

Article source: Tony Caro Architecture

This project spanned the challenging economic circumstances of the 2000 decade, and was subjected to a long development gestation and intermittent periods of prolonged inactivity. It challenged our perception of enduring architectural and aesthetic values in many ways.

Dame of Melba in Victoria, Australia by Seeley Architects

Saturday, July 13th, 2013

Article source: Seeley Architects

The Dame of Melba is a weekend holiday residence for a retired couple, set into a hillside overlooking the rugged Anglesea coastline.  Exposed and in a harsh, salty environment, materials that weather well over time and require minimal maintenance were key selection criteria.
