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.

Super Whatnot in Brisbane, Australia by Marc&Co

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

Article source: Marc&Co

While Australia’s lane way phenomenon has been primarily about Melbourne and in more recent times Sydney, a small bar has just opened in Brisbane that attempts to put a pair of shoes on the casual barefooted bar culture of the Sunshine State. Super Whatnot is located in Burnett Lane in the middle of the CBD. Surrounded by alternative EMO youth and hobos salvaging cigarettes it’s the perfect destination for the city’s first serious lane way bar.

The 18 hectare site has had a life that has ebbed and flowed with the life of the family who have owned it for almost 30 years. Developed from the ground up into a small orchard by a growing family the farm is now retreating back to its natural form as the owners also wind down in retirement.

The three wings of the Balonne River house each comprise a separate function. The master wing, closest to the river, contains the main bedroom, en suite, robe and the study come nursery.

The living wing is a large open space divided by an elliptical ‘stone’ shaped kitchen which provides a visual barrier from the front door. The kitchen also acts as a screen to divide the living wing into a more formal space with a fireplace, whilst at the other end the family space breaks out onto the covered deck.

The bedroom wing contains three bedrooms and guests room with en suite. The bathroom and toilet are in separate spaces that are accessed via a powder room/vanity space.

Separate wing will incorporate the carport.

Relocatable’s are the decades old solution to changing demographics, remote community needs, and natural disasters. Unsightly, they are perceived as cheap and unpleasant spaces.

Glenhope House in Melbourne, Australia by JOH Architects

Friday, January 20th, 2012

The house is a family weekender located on approximately 100 acres in the granite belt roughly one hours drive north of Melbourne.

The obvious site for the house has panoramic views of the surrounding hills with the existing site access road approaching from the south. We created a circular driveway at the head of this road leading to covered car spaces, which radiate off the driveway, and provide sheltered access directly through the boots room or laundry on either side of the main entry door. The dwelling has three wings built around this central circular drive, bedroom / study wings along the east & west sides, with the main living, kitchen, dining and decks along the north. A gallery connects the three wings and main entry. The bedroom wings are mirrored geometric compressed cement sheet boxes with deep reveal windows providing shade and weather shelter. The main living, kitchen, dining and decks facing due north are under one long blade corrugated roof structure supported by high rustic timber trusses which are supported of a rammed earth blade wall. The rammed earth wall also separates these areas from the gallery walkway, which links all three wings and the building entries.

Balmain House in Sydney, Australia by Carter Williamson Architects (designed using Vectorworks)

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

Article source: Carter Williamson Architects

The original 1860’s home sits modestly on its block. Humble and unassuming, its appearance defines its cultural significance; the workers cottage preserves a ‘moment’ in the rich, blue-collar heritage and character of Balmain. Preserving and restoring the integrity of the existing cottage as part of the streetscape and the eclectic, urban fabric of Balmain was always fundamental to the design. Any addition needed to be sympathetic, sensitively yet distinctively bridging the divide between new and old.
