Saturday, December 3rd, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects

Hamilton Hill House is a dramatic conversion of a 1980s stylised home into a 21st Century contemporary piece of architecture. The design includes three formally expressive pavilions that shroud the original house in such a way as to engage with the expansive views while addressing the lifestyle needs of a growing family.

Sunshine Beach House in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects

The Sunshine Beach House explores the coastal aesthetic through the use of greying timbers and natural materials in a bold, but equally eclectic, architectural expression. The house is planned around a sequence of courtyards (north and south) that offer a very comfortable year-round lifestyle. Built by Wade Jenner (who along with his wife Claire is also the owner), this project afforded us a wonderful opportunity to develop and craft ideas we’ve had for a long time with someone who trusted us enough to make them real.

Blake Residence in Melbourne, Australia by FINNEY CONSTRUCTIONS

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Article source: FINNEY CONSTRUCTIONS

This original 1970’s home was transformed into a striking modernist home totally unexpected in the more conservative Caulfield area.

A combination of Dado Render and Woodform Timber Batons on a curved wall creates the first impressions of this property, a far cry from the original façade that was dominated by a tin shed and a driveway.

A pivot door opens to the welcome area with curved walls that guide you to an impressive corridor with high ceilings and a gigantic view of the sky. All the doors off the corridor sit flushed against the wall, hung with pivot hinges and negative detailing surrounds. The bespoke timber circular door handles has an irresistible tactile quality that adds warmth to the space.

Ladrillo in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects 

Ladrillo (Spanish for ‘brick’) takes its cues from the Spanish Mission architectural style of the original Red Hill cottage. Utilising textured brick, recycled breezeblocks and original decorative plaster, this is architecture focused on textures – a fresh white palette not only unifies these textures, but also unites new and old. Punctuated by a central courtyard distinctly separating these spaces, the design maintains visual connections through the light, airy open architecture, which ultimately creates a beautiful backdrop for family life.

The Corner House in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects 

The Corner House is a contemporary design responding to a character vernacular in a quiet suburban street in inner-city Brisbane. The house is designed around three courtyards, offering a plan that transparently connects the indoor and outdoor living spaces. A simple but poetic palette of light, natural materials is the backdrop to a rich tapestry of shadows created by the screened elements that offer a reinterpretation of the traditional verandah.

Deerhurst in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects

This bold extension heavily inspired by our modernist leanings sits poetically atop its 33,000sqm bushland setting. The house explores ideas of transparency and solidity through the use of a heavy stone base juxtaposed against its heavily glazed, cantilevered pavilion above.

1770 in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Friday, November 25th, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects 

1770 is a bold, rustic beach house on a truly unique site on the edge of the Coral Sea. The east-facing house is conceived around a northerly courtyard (which sits in the lee of the wind) with transparent walls allowing panoramic views from all parts of the house. A rustic, raw material palette of stone, silvering timber and textured plaster speaks of the natural weathering that this place is all about.

Buena Vista in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects

Buena Vista challenges the idea of what a house looks like in a contemporary Brisbane suburb. The architectural idea centres around a brick and sheet metal industrial aesthetic that simultaneously references and subverts the local vernacular. The house embraces the courtyard plan which affords the occupants city views whilst allowing an intimate and private lifestyle.

SYDNEY STREET in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects 

Sydney Street involved the re-calibration of 100 years of Queenslander vernacular into a contemporary inner-city home. The idea was to renovate and extend the cottage in such a way as to reinforce and maintain the original geometry and form. The new architecture is expressed in the outdoor room and the ground plane of the ‘undercroft’ where brickwork has been chosen to ‘anchor’ the house into the site. A sympathetic but edgy approach to detailing and material completes an engaging and relevant addition to the tree-lined streetscape.
