Glass House Mountains House in Maleny, Australia by Bark Design Architects

Saturday, May 3rd, 2014

Article source: Bark Design Architects

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.

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

Article source: Smart Design Studio

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.

57 Tivoli Road in South Yarra, Australia by b.e Architecture

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

Article source: b.e Architecture

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.

Holiday house in Nannup, Australia by iredale pedersen hook

Saturday, April 19th, 2014

Article source: iredale pedersen hook  

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.

Jack’s House in Melbourne, Australia by FMD Architects

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

Article source: FMD Architects

The new extension offers a dialogue between two buildings of different eras. The existing Victorian residence at the street front and the industrial saw-tooth warehouse on the rear boundary seem disconnected in style and function. The extension negotiates between the two buildings, stretching and tapering toward the saw-tooth brick wall, while internally opening up from the double loaded Victorian corridor to the open glazed space, with the brick wall on the boundary as a feature backdrop.

The brief was to create new Living spaces, relocate the kitchen and bathroom and improve access to natural light. The functional requirements of the client were simple. The only particular requirement was to find a place in the design for 3 tapestries that her mother had made.
