Paddington Terrace House in Sydney, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects

Friday, April 28th, 2017

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects

A designer would find oneself dancing to a familiar tune when approached to upgrade this terrace house in Paddington, a suburb east of Sydney City. Faced with the age old problems presented by much loved terrace housing – damp, dark and introverted – we sought to create a luminous space to give a full family a much needed dose of vitamin D. Introducing some fluid lines with a light filled stairwell at the centre and a sun drenched kitchen and living at the rear, the new configuration of old and new proves an enriching experience. Accustomed to muted tones, and a subtle palette, a much needed spring was put in our step by the bold use of colours, delphinium blues, cadmium yellows, beautiful artworks, exotic patterns and rich textures carefully selected by the interior designer in residence, Heidi Correa. The lush landscaping at the rear provides a verdant backdrop to family life. The final result knocked even us off our feet.

Sydney Park Water Re-Use Project in Sydney, Australia by Turf Design Studio

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Article source: v2com

Much has been achieved over the past two decades in transforming the Sydney Park site from its industrial and landfill legacy, into 44 hectares of parkland and a vital asset for the growing communities of Sydney’s south east.

The project is part of City of Sydney’s Decentralised Water Master Plan (2012-2030), specifically focused on reducing the City’s potable water demand by 10% before 2030. It is the City’s largest water harvesting project to date, built in partnership with the Australian Government and seizing a once in a lifetime opportunity to use what was essentially an infrastructure project to breathe new life into the park – as a vibrant recreation and environmental asset for Sydney.

Coogee House in Sydney, Australia by Madeleine Blanchfield Architects

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

Article source: Madeleine Blanchfield Architects 

This alts and adds project involved converting an existing 1920’s duplex apartment into a house. The internal planning was modified including all new bathrooms, kitchen and fit out. The existing street side facade was modified in keeping with the character of the existing building, the rear was completely opened to the garden and a new pavilion structure built to house dining and living areas. The contemporary and light filled new spaces make reference to the older existing ones in their materiality and proportions, but are distinctly contrasting. The result is a light filled new living area and character filled bedrooms and other rooms which highlight the qualities of the old and the new.

Tamarama House in Sydney, Australia by Porebski Architects

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

Article source: Porebski Architects

Located on a corner site on the hills overlooking Tamarama Beach the design allows the house to be a sculpture on the site. With stone forming the base a sculptured curved fa§ade creates the lighter upper levels. The building is beautifully modulated by the use of timber batten extensions forming bay windows against the curvaceous white render masonry which all sit wonderfully with the Will Dangar designed gardens.

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. Sydney City Council is a design intelligent council, a rare thing in that level of authority, Image Courtesy © Edward Birch

CONCORD HOUSE_I in Sydney, Australia by Studio Benicio

Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

Article source: Studio Benicio

This low maintenance, contemporary four bedroom house located in Concord, Sydney, completed in May 2016, has been designed to showcase the owners’ love for concrete and to provide more space and greater amenity for their family of four.

The clients were after a new contemporary house that would make better use of their existing site than their tired, red brick cottage. The clients own and operate a formwork business, which in turn has garnered them a great love and appreciation for concrete and wanted their new house to feature this throughout.

Cave Restaurant in Sydney, Australia by Koichi Takada Architects

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

Article source: Koichi Takada Architects

We aim to change the way we ate and chat in restaurants. The acoustic quality of restaurants contributes to the comfort and enjoyment of a dining experience.

We have experimented with noise levels in relationship to the comfort of dining and the ambience a cave like environment can create. The timber profiles generate a sound studio atmosphere, and a pleasant ‘noise’ of dining conversation, offering a more intimate experience as well as a visually interesting and complex surrounding.

Morrison House in Sydney, Australia by Chris Elliott Architects

Saturday, July 16th, 2016

Article source: Chris Elliott Architects

The concept for this house renovation is simple -­‐ a protected and private timber box sits on top of a glass box that dissolves the boundary between house and garden.

The rear of house was a collection of long, narrow, dismal, poky, dark rooms with no view or connection to the garden. There was one small spot of sun – on the back step.

Benelong Crescent Apartments in Sydney, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects 

Benelong Crescent apartments are inspired by the sinuous forms of Erich Mendelsohn’s Einstein Tower in Potsdam, completed in the 1920’s. The apartments cascade down the hill to follow the contours and the curved terraced balconies are shaped by the irregular boundaries of the site, rounded off by the prevailing winds.
