Duplex & the City in Sydney, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Architects

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Architects

Equivalent to the brownstones of New York, this interwar duplex is a humane scale solution to housing in the Sydney city fringes.

Shoulder to shoulder with other apartment buildings, the original 1920s two-storey flats were transformed into a four storey block with a basement carpark and cellar, a ground floor garden apartment and a two-storey penthouse.

The scissor balconies of the back elevation are angled to offer side views while maintaining the building’s rear alignment with the neighbouring properties. The Council thought but resisted the tempation to emacitate the elevation by cutting it back to a flat façade.

Oak Grove in Victoria, Australia by justin mallia architecture

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

Article source: justin mallia architecture

Oak Grove is a development driven venture. Between a detailed client brief laden with ideas about visual style, and the site located in the eclectic suburban context of East Malvern, the architecture negotiates a meaningful contemporary response within highly saturated physical and conceptual parameters.

Carlisle Street Extension in Adelaide, Australia by SANS-ARC Studio

Sunday, December 25th, 2016

Article source: SANS-ARC

The Carlisle Street extension is a foray into a new-Australian vernacular. Familiar materials and form are used with a higher-consideration to context and passive design, exploring a vernacular for the modern-day. The extension is restrained and simple; a volume of space that is light-filled and expansive yet private.

St Joseph’s Nudgee College in Queensland, Australia by m3architecture

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Article source: m3architecture 

The Bathersby Boarding Village is akin to a castle in the centre of a city (the school). It is a place where every boy can feel like “the King of the Castle”.

Fort-like boarding houses have a long tradition in English schools. They offer appropriate frameworks for safety, security and community building.

The Creek House in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Friday, December 9th, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects  

The Creek House draws its inspiration from the local vernacular of brick and tin houses on a large leafy block in the Kenmore Hills. The design involved a significant re-invigoration and extension to what was a very simple but promising house. The new work opens the primary living spaces out to the north offering views and engagement with the natural creek environs which offers an enviable sanctuary from the city nearby. A rich but simple palette of stone and timber engages with the natural surroundings, whilst the sheer white walls offer a minimal and clean counterpoint to the immediate context. The outcome is a reflection of a wonderful collaboration between trusting clients that have known us for a long time, and their son who expertly executed the build.

Barton Street in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects 

The Barton Street project involved the conversion of a turn-of-the-century character home in Bardon into a twenty-first century contemporary family home. The design of the house focused on maximising the sense of volume, space and connection to the environment in a functional but also poetic way. A rich palette of stone, timber and concrete offers a modern counterpoint to the historic fabric that drew the clients to the house originally.

Yan Lane in Victoria, Australia by Justin Mallia Architecture

Tuesday, December 6th, 2016

Article source: Justin Mallia Architecture

Yan Lane is a new street in Richmond. Undertaken on a small budget, this scheme was conceived as an opportunity to use architectural understanding to drive a development project to meaningfully infill an otherwise ignored space and to achieve financial return. The project involved the subdivision of a narrow sliver of land with no street frontage and hidden between the rear face of shops to the south and the backyard fences and sheds of houses to the north. Yan Lane is primarily the creation of a new building incorporating two houses but reaches beyond the scope of the small site to include the extension of services infrastructure from the main road and the recreation of a right of way to form a new street. The project creates an activated, human place from what was previously disused and neglected.
