How a dark, century-old wool store in Sydney’s historic wharf district has been transformed into a sleek and playful workspace for one of Australia’s fastest growing Gen Y virtual data companies.
Take a fast growing financial data company, 50+ young staff working long hours under intense pressure, a global client base, kilometres of cabling and technological infrastructure, and an old building, and you have one very challenging commercial fit-out project.

The Brighton townhouses address the strong desire to live comfortably, maximising area on a more compact site. Gone are the days of abundant grounds. Inner Melbourne markets require maximising the built area and creating smaller outdoor spaces that work efficiently, even in some of the more prosperous suburbs. 2 x large 3 storey townhouses including basement each now sit comfortably on the site where originally a single dilapidated house was located.

Designed for expatriate Australian clients in international banking working in Bucharest, Romania, the ‘Glass House Mountain House’ in Maleny celebrates its site, perched on the edge of the remnant rim of the Glass House range, as well as the essence of its place – ‘sky and mountains’. Translated into a place of ‘glass and stone’ inextricably connected to its landscape it has qualities of being anchored, robust and earthbound as well as being transparent, light and floating.

Austin is the refurbishment of a rundown warehouse into a new mixed development in the heart of Surry Hills. The existing warehouse building has been given a new lease of life, reorganizing its interior with a new extended ground level commercial space, two levels of high quality residential apartments, and a lower ground floor car park. The site is located in the inner-city fringe of Surry Hills, which is characterised by warehouses and Victorian terraces houses that in recent years have housed artist’s studios, galleries and creative work spaces.

The house, 57 Tivoli Road, is situated on a corner block in the inner city Melbourne suburb of South Yarra.
Formally one of a series of attached row houses of disparate & eclectic housing styles, the exposed corner site meant a protective building was required for both visual and acoustic privacy, and the design seeks to create an enclosed shelter for the occupants, as well as forming an architectural bookend to the procession of houses which precede it.

The Nannup Holiday house forms part of a wandering path through the landscape from Perth to Nannup. This path dialogues with the landscape of intense forest, meandering river and rolling hills, each experience is carefully choreographed to enrich the occupancy of the house. A Jeykll and Hyde experience of the landscape is carefully controlled through oscillating vertical (forest) and horizontal (horizon) openings and the contrast of grounded and floating experiences. While the exterior dialogues with the numerous fallen trees, the interior is revealed through a sequence of ‘growth rings’ coded and extruded in relation to the building program.

The Prahran Hotel is a substantial two storey corner pub with a striking streamlined art deco facade.
