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.

Waterfront Palazzo Eleven Years On in Sydney, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Architects

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Architects

Like a good wine good houses age well, improving with the passing of the years.  When compared to the original photographs, taken by Richard Glover in 2004 http://luigirosselli.com/residential/coolong-road , the recent reshoot of this waterfront palazzo shows how the lush Will Danger designed garden has become part of the architecture and how gracefully the building has aged, all the finishes are still fresh and faultless.

The Bow Window Penthouse in Sydney, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Architects

Friday, April 1st, 2016

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Architects

In a first for Luigi Rosselli Architects the camera has left the ground to pan over the penthouse additions to a classic Art Deco style apartment block built in the late 1920s.  The penthouse’s defining feature is a bow window in the corner of the building facing the intersection of the street that reaches out to create a dialogue with the passers-by in the avenue below.  The bow window is also reminiscent of windows found in the Captain’s Quarters at the stern of historic ships; borrowing from naval architecture was appropriate for the seaside location of Bondi Beach.  The penthouse is separated from the existing brick unit block by a concrete slab and spandrel, this is a fire protection requirement.  A wave of metal roofing conceals the upper level of the penthouse from the street.  The wave dovetails towards the view, culminating in a balcony, of which two were designed but only one was allowed by the Council.

DPR House in Sydney, Australia by MCK Architects

Friday, October 23rd, 2015

Article source: MCK Architects

The conceptual framework for DPR House was one of house as landscape, a house that would have a topography where activities were acted out on a terrain that flowed and folded and hinged, a circuit of movement was flowing internally, externally vertically and horizontally, providing a dynamic and fluidity to the plan.
