1 Bligh in Sydney by ingenhoven architects

Thursday, June 29th, 2017

Article source: ingenhoven architects

The 1 Bligh tower in Sydney’s financial district, highly visible when viewed from the Harbour Bridge, is a prominent addition to the city’s skyline. Australia’s first truly “green” skyscraper is a 28-storey tower with a height of 139 m. The tower combines the highest grades of sustainability, spatial efficiency, carefully designed integration into the immediate urban environment and a spectacular view of the harbour. Employees in almost all offices can enjoy the panoramic views due to the elliptical shape of the building.

Perched House in Melbourne, Australia by Rara Architecture

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Article source: Rara Architecture

Perched House is a light extension at the rear of an inner city semi-detached Edwardian house that sweeps over your head.

The brief and site are common in inner-city Melbourne properties. Usually, because of the need to pack in as much space and storage as possible, the spaces are susceptible to becoming dark and feeling cramped. We decided to stick to the essentials and neatening up the layout to reduce dead space while playing with natural light to increase the drama and the effect – the space is in fact quite small, but no one would think so.

Bougainvillea Row House in New South Wales, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects 

Sydney’s planners are considering the return of the terraced house, or row house, as a favoured residential building type.  It is believed the terrace could be one solution to addressing housing affordability; by allowing the subdivision of standard quarter acre blocks of land into narrow strips and building adjoining two-three storey dwellings.

Red Rocks in New South Wales, Australia by ARKHAUS

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

Article source: ARKHAUS

The scheme included working around an existing slab & steel structure. With minor modifications to the structure, and some small extensions to the portal steel frames, we were able to create open, light filled spaces with private bedroom pods each having private deck and garden areas. The outdoor and indoor areas blend into shared spaces including a large infinity pool & spa area opening up to expansive Kangaroo Valley views.

Beach House in Victoria, Australia by DX Architects

Friday, June 2nd, 2017

Article source: DX Architects

The Blairgowrie Beach House on the Mornington Peninsula retained and altered the rear proportion of the existing building and expanded the dwelling forward on a steeply sloped site to accommodate additional living and sleeping areas. Manipulations of the building form were employed to address the access disconnect and setup a conceptual framework where we continued our practices interest in spatial division patterns. The new first floor incorporates a large cantilevered metal clad form which created a covered area for car parking, and was counteracted with concrete rendered vertical walls which pushed out to level out the land. Continuing formal manipulations, the metal clad form had volumes carved out to incorporate a balcony space, and a feature vertical window to illuminate at night and interact with the public realm when the house is being occupied.

Falcon Beach House in Panamuna Drive, Australia by iredale pedersen hook

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Article source: iredale pedersen hook 

The Falcon House challenges the inappropriate, contemporary approach of destroying the native landscape and topography. The upper level hovers gently as a white object, the lower level is a black shadow, in the middle is a thin zone of grey that reminds us that nothing is ever ‘black or white’.
