Barrow House in Melbourne, Australia by Andrew Maynard Architects

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

Article source: Andrew Maynard Architects

The Barrow extension appears as an arrangement of timber boxes, each independently rotated and subjected to varying amounts of extruding and manipulating forces.

These separate actions result in a variety of shapes, which united, create an interior of differing volumes and organizations, providing an interesting double story addition to this weatherboard house.

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

Article source: Hill Thalis Architecture

The Rose Bay Apartments project comprises 11 residential units, 2 shops and a basement carpark on a compact urban site.

The plan form of the building is a T form providing all units with cross ventilation. On each typical floor, two units face the street as a continuous street wall in accordance with Woollahra Council’s DCP for Rose Bay (also prepared by Hill Thalis). The upper levels have views towards the harbour and the leafy elevated outlook towards Vaucluse. Roof top terraces are provided to upper level apartments of the building. A third unit to the rear of the property is liberated from the property boundaries and shares no common walls with its neighbours – looking towards the extensive harbour and city views to the northwest.

Perry Park in Sydney, Australia by Hassell

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Article source: Hassell

As part of a limited competition for the City of Sydney, HASSELL undertook the challenge to rejuvenate Perry Park in the inner-Sydney suburb of Alexandria.

Taking the themes of sport and ecology, the HASSELL response provides for a range of passive and active recreational activities within a park and wetland setting. Our goal was to create a destination for both individuals and groups; a place where sport and ecology mix seamlessly, support and complement one another in a balanced environment.

The Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia by Billard Lecce Partnership and Bates Smart

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

Article source: Billard Lecce Partnership and Bates Smart

The design of Melbourne’s $AUD1 billion Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) is based on ‘state of the art’ ideas developed by the hospital around a family-centred care model that puts children and their parents at the centre of the tertiary level paediatric care facility. Using innovative and evidence-based design principles, the RCH reflects changing healthcare practices, workplace patterns, user expectations, community aspirations and environmental responsibility.

The building’s formal arrangement, as well the internal and external spatial experiences, has been assembled to promote a restorative and healing environment for children and their families.
