Camberwell House in Australia by AM Architecture

Sunday, February 11th, 2018

Article source: AM Architecture

The site is located in Camberwell, Victoria on a unique L shape block, overlooking a leafy park. The existing architecture is rendered precast at first floor, sitting on external clinker brick planes at its base.  Its living areas were originally situated at first floor.

The brief was mostly pragmatic. More space for a large family, better zoning, and importantly to create a better connection to the outdoors but not lose the stunning views of the neighbouring parkland.

Curtain Cottage in Carlton North, Australia by Apparte Studio

Friday, February 9th, 2018

Article source: Apparte Studio

Passive energy design

The narrow house faces north and the front living area becomes flooded with sunlight, penetrating deep into the hallway.

The raised cathedral ceiling draws up much of the hot air during occasional hot summer periods, leaving the lower areas of the house cooler.

The existing house had good thermal properties to begin with. Most of both party walls are shared with a neighbour and there is good cross-flow ventilation to release heat when the front and rear doors are opened.

The large skylight over the dining area to the south saves hours of artificial lighting each day.

Elwood House in Australia by STAR Architecture

Thursday, January 25th, 2018

Article source: STAR Architecture 

Elwood House of Heaton Avenue sits within a tree-lined streetscape that comprises a mix of contemporary and heritage buildings within a council heritage overlay – predominantly Californian bungalows with red brick façades and terracotta tiled roofs, set back from the street with formal gardens and timber fences. Prior to renovation, Elwood House was a tired, 100-year-old example of these in poor condition but with bones intact. The client, who valued the history and style of the building wanted to invest in its retention and restoration. Details such as tuckpointing of façade brickwork, new cobbled bluestone driveway, reinstated timber fence and formal geometric front garden designed by Lachie Anderson Landscapes has strengthened the heritage fabric of the street. Internally, the restoration of leadlight windows, timber hardwood floors, ornamental skirtings, elaborate architraves and high ceilings with decorative plasterwork repainted with traditional heritage colours brings the building back to life and restores its formal grandeur.

Joyful House in Geelong, Australia by Mihaly Slocombe

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

Article source: Mihaly Slocombe 

Joyful House is a fun and brightly coloured addition to a weatherboard worker’s cottage on the outskirts of Geelong.

With the arrival of their third child, our clients asked us to open the rear of their house to provide a variety of light-filled spaces for their energetic young family. Our intervention retains original bedrooms, adding new services and a multifunctional living room that opens onto the generous back garden. The addition contrasts in colour and form to the original cottage and surrounding streetscape, a black-clad counterpoint to white weatherboard.

Dorman House in Australia by Austin Maynard Architects

Sunday, January 14th, 2018

Article source: Austin Maynard Architects 

There are too many beautiful old shacks being demolished, and Austin Maynard Architects won’t be part of it.

In brief

A couple of years ago Kate and Grant showed us around their beautiful shack, in bushland near the ocean, which they loved and valued greatly. They asked ‘how could we add a clear and elevated view of the ocean without demolishing, damaging or dominating our beloved shack?’

Susuru in New South Wales, Australia by Prevalent

Friday, January 5th, 2018

Article source: Prevalent

Situated in a prominent building from 1906, SUSURU Ramen and Gyoza bar enlivens the façade and street it rests on. Working closely with the City Council, the design breaks away from the traditional mining aesthetic typical of the area. As the city grows and develops, it attracts more foreign attention, whom don’t necessarily have the same rapport with what was largely a mining town many years ago. The SUSURU restaurant is for the newcomers, for those visiting, and most importantly, for those long term residents wanting to see the city develop and diversify.

North Kellyville Square in Australia by Scott Carver

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

Article source: Scott Carver

“It is a hybrid community place, both an urban square and an activated main street. It is an engaging resolution of the walkable and the vehicular – of big convenience and bespoke localism,” says Rob Sanderson [Project and Design Leader]. “It inaugurates and celebrates the future urbanity of the place”.

“Ample and changing daylight makes the space alive within the static built form while the cantilevered awnings provide comfort and the setting for activation,” says Anupama Saha [Project Architect].
