Tang House in Carlton, Melbourne, Australia by 4site architecture

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Article source: 4site architecture

The client of this single fronted double brick terrace house in Carlton wanted to find an intelligent architectural response that would breath life into a dark and pokey dwelling.

The existing property is typical of Victorian terrace houses with a hallway and front two rooms configuration, then a poorly planned series of gloomy, dysfunctional lean-to additions, poor access to natural light and no direct connection to the rear yard. We responded to the client’s brief by retaining the original two bedrooms at the front, with a proposed double storey addition including bathroom, laundry, living, kitchen, dining area and an additional bedroom with en suite.

The Yardmaster’s Building in Melbourne, Australia by McBride Charles Ryan

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

Article source: McBride Charles Ryan

Within the gritty rail yard environment, squeezed between a space formed by the divergence of V-Line tracks at the end of platforms 5 and 6, the Yardmasters Building is a multi-use facility for the various workers and operations associated with the Southern Cross Rail Yard. A service building that in years passed may have been treated in a pragmatic and unremarkable way.

Barrow House in Melbourne, Australia by Andrew Maynard Architects

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

Article source: Andrew Maynard Architects

The Barrow extension appears as an arrangement of timber boxes, each independently rotated and subjected to varying amounts of extruding and manipulating forces.

These separate actions result in a variety of shapes, which united, create an interior of differing volumes and organizations, providing an interesting double story addition to this weatherboard house.

The design of Melbourne’s $AUD1 billion Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) is based on ‘state of the art’ ideas developed by the hospital around a family-centred care model that puts children and their parents at the centre of the tertiary level paediatric care facility.

The Paris-Roubaix is a one-day, 260km cycling event in the north of France ridden mostly over bluestone cobbles, it is known as The Hell of the North for obvious reasons. With Parisian bistro references and plenty of historic Melbourne bluestone, the new Hell of the North has been crafted into and around an original 19th century hotel on the threshold of Fitzroy and Collingwood.

A flagship store for the Brazilian shoe brand, the fitout needed to reflect the internationally renowned brand as well as support the unique product.

A dream commission that required an equally unique response.

Twin Townhomes in Melbourne, Australia by Christopher Megowan Design

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Article source: Christopher Megowan Design

Christopher Megowan Design is pleased to announce the completion of two townhomes in Malvern, an inner suburb of Melbourne, Australia.

The two homes stretch across the site from east to west and use north facing light courts, skylights over the stairs and skillion roofs to the rear lounge to maximize sunlight to the spaces of the two homes which require it most.   The homes achieved an excellent standard of energy efficiency thanks to its creative siting, passive ventilation and thermal mass contained in the rendered brick exterior walls of each home.  Double-glazing, solar panels, solar hot water, LED lighting throughout and rainwater tanks complete the environmental package.
