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 Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia by Billard Lecce Partnership and Bates Smart

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

Article source: Billard Lecce Partnership and Bates Smart

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. Using innovative and evidence-based design principles, the RCH reflects changing healthcare practices, workplace patterns, user expectations, community aspirations and environmental responsibility.

The building’s formal arrangement, as well the internal and external spatial experiences, has been assembled to promote a restorative and healing environment for children and their families.

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Article source: Smlwrld

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.

Melissa Shoes in Melbourne, Australia by Edwards Moore

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Article source: Edwards Moore

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. Housed in a corner site in Melbourne’s QV centre, a highly visible high traffic area it was essential that the fitout provided a visual feast for the passing pedestrian, a dynamic and constantly evolving space. Internally the need was to create another world, a sensory delight.

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.

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.

DESIGN
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.

Blurred House in Melbourne, Australia by BiLD Architecture (designed using Rhino)

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

Article source: BiLD architecture

The first in a series of studies into the adaptation of vernacular Australian suburban typologies, ‘Blurred House’ is a major renovation and extension to an original 1930’s Californian bungalow in Melbourne’s inner-north. Reacting to the established convention of residential extension which prescribes a jarring juxtaposition of existing ‘old’ and introduced ‘new’ architectural elements; the ‘Blurred House’ offers an alternative proposition; that of a blurring between ‘old’ and ‘new’ to produce a hybrid. Gradually transitioning from the vernacular to the contemporary, the division of architectural elements are deliberately ambiguous, producing a unique formal and visual language.
