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.

GLEBE HOUSE in Sydney, Australia by CHARLES ALEXÍOU INTERIOR DESIGN & ARCHITECTURE

Sunday, August 30th, 2015

Article source: CHARLES ALEXÍOU INTERIOR DESIGN & ARCHITECTURE

This charming late 1800s Victorian terrace is located in the inner western suburb of Glebe, Sydney.

The househad been neglected and was crumbling and in desperate need of some tender loving care.  It was dark and cold with rising damn and structurally not sound.  However, for our client, it was love at first sight.  Sheinstantly fell in love with it and bought it.

The new owners,which we affectionately referred to as the “Brady Bunch”, have 6 (six) children between them and planned to live there.

Alpha in Lewisham, Sydney by Tony Owen Partners

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

Article source: Tony Owen Partners

The Alpha by Tony Owen Partners has recently been completed. Located in Lewisham on the fringe of the Sydney city centre, the Alpha forms the cornerstone of the new McGill master plan prepared by TOP. Alpha’s distinctive design and style which sets it apart from other developments. Its hexagonal pod-like façade creates an environmental screen which controls light and frames the views, allowing maximum exposure as well as privacy. The seven storey building encompasses a selection of one bedroom and two bedroom apartments and retail/commercial spaces. The top levels contain two and three bedroom two storey ‘skyhomes’ with hexagonal metal pods leading onto expansive roof terraces with panoramic views towards the city and surrounding parklands. Sydney is defined by its outdoor living, for apartment dwellers their balconies are the outdoor space, yet until now few people have explored the potential to do something special with these balconies.

Care Implant Dentistry in Sydney, Australia by Pedra Silva Architects

Friday, April 17th, 2015
Article source: Pedra Silva Architects

On one of Sydney’s high-end retail streets we were invited to design a high-level state of the art dental clinic. The actual space and the brief provided by the client posed a few challenges that got us thinking. An aesthetic is something that may be mistaken as an additional almost cosmetic layer to a design, but in our projects, the aesthetic is a clear response to problem solving.
In this particular case the client requested two receptions with two entrances that could function separately but without compromising the sense of spaciousness and its relationship with people passing by. In the same space we also had a stubborn structural column that seemed to impose itself in all the attempts of trying to integrate it into the design. The solution? Answering the brief and magically making the column disappear!
