G House in Sydney, Australia by Bruce Stafford Architects (designed with SketchUp and AutoCAD)

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

Article source: Bruce Stafford Architects

A typical eastern Suburbs harbour view site; long, narrow and sloping away from the road toward harbour and Manly views.
As the house is set lower than the road with living spaces opening back toward the street, a lightweight timber screen filters street views and creates privacy, yet allows light and ventilation to the private living spaces. The house has two living levels; the primary living level opens out toward an elevated view and the lower living area flows out to a pool deck and private courtyards.

California Dreaming in Tasmania, Australia by Bild Architecture (designed with Rhino 3D)

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

Article source: Bild Architecture

California Dreamingis one of a continuing series of projects exploring adaptations of Australian suburban typologies to contemporary housing requirements. Located in an area of inner-urban Launceston originally developed with inter-war ‘California Bungalow’ type housing, the project adapts and co-ops this typology to contemporary living styles and expectations for a pair of duplex residential units.Unfashionable for many years this area of the city lay dormantafter its initial wave of development, preserving an enclave of inter-war speculative housing. However in recent years, with sudden gentrification, the area has seen a new wave of housing occupying the abundant infill opportunities. These new occupants, reflective of contemporary ways of living and ways of building sit in stark contrast with the area’s original houses.

Marine Parade Apartments in Maroubra, Australia by Smart Design Studio (designed using MicroStation)

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

Article source: Smart Design Studio

This building in Maroubra, Australia accommodates four luxury apartments- one per floor plus a carpark/ services level that is built into the hill. Maroubra has incredible natural beauty with its rocky cliffs, white beaches and crystal blue waters but the urban fabric is unconsidered, uninteresting and largely in decay. Smart Design Studio capitalised on this unique setting by creating a building that focused on the wonderful view from within and, through strong form, has created a handsome building in profile to enhance the urban fabric of this area.

Pinnacles Desert Discovery Centre in Nambung National Park, Western Australia by Woodhead

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Woodhead

Woodhead designed the Pinnacles Desert Discovery Centre to experience the unique role of fire, both culturally and environmentally, as part of its design and construction process.

The evocative gesture of ritual burning introduces this specific practice into contemporary Australian architecture. The burning and the burnt remains are integral to the scheme and highlight the relationship between fire, the land and its inhabitants.

Clayfield House in Brisbane, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects

In January 2010, clients commissioned SLa to do a ‘traditional’ build-in-under project to their 1890’s Queenslander that had already undergone a substantial renovation some years before. The house, while grand and in great condition, ignored the site attributes and did not adequately address the needs of contemporary living in the sub-tropics.

Lockyer House in Brisbane, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects

The “Lockyer House” is a small, contemporary extension onto a post war house in Bardon, a heavily treed and hilly fringe suburb in Brisbane. The design looks to address two primary architectural issues, the first is about context and language, the second is about finding the “essence” of what is needed from an accommodation/ resource perspective in an effort to create a engaging but practical and economical outcome.

Amelia Street in Brisbane, Australia by Tim Stewart Architects

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

Article source: Tim Stewart Architects

Breathing new life into existing commercial buildings can present a challenge. Often there are few references for character with corporate image becoming the code word for monotony. In this instance the client rejected the common indicators of an office, demanding a building responsive to its orientation and restrained in its palette. The result is building with a simple, yet memorable presence which extends from its main street frontage through to its refurbished internal spaces.
