Fairfax Avenue Apartment in Sydney, Australia by Rolf Ockert Design

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

Article source: Rolf Ockert Design

We were approached by a bachelor who had just bought a penthouse apartment in an upmarket suburb of Sydney’s East. The apartment occupied the entire top floor of a 1940’s building and  had great views over Sydney harbour. On the downside it was not very well laid out and the living area was small. The connection of the living area as well as access to the large terrace was also not ideal.

Design Statement

In 2011 we were approached by a client we had built a house for to design the new office for his company. In his opinion the house we had designed for him is still “the best house in the world” and he expected nothing less for his new office fit out. Indeed the only design brief other than the number of workstations to be accommodated was that it had to be “funky”.

Marrickville house renovation in Sydney by Danny Broe Architect

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Article source: Danny Broe Architect

The brief: To create an Australian version of an English garden room at the rear of an existing Federation style brick house.

Planning strategy
The challenge of this design was to create a room with lots of glass that was still suited to the hot climate of Australia. We achieved this by reducing the glass in the roof to a reflective glass triangular skylight and the careful placement of external glass in relation to the direction of the sun.

Construction will soon commence on the Gosford Quarries project by Tony Owen Partners. This project consists of 23 town houses on the Harbourfront of Sydney’s historic inner west. This area is traditionally a working port and the origin of Sydney’s tough working class neighborhoods. The site is formerly the Gosford Quarries sandstone facility which built much of Sydney’s historic houses and is a remnant of the working port. The linear site adjoins the light rail lines with spectacular harbour views.

Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust (c) Simone Cottrell

With a combined area of 64 hectares, on a spectacular location bordering the iconic Sydney Harbour waterfront, the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney and public Domain is the largest single site in the Sydney Central Business District.  Ongoing management of the space is crucial for the future development and direction of Sydney as a cultural and tourist destination. Due to celebrate its bicentenary in 2016, and as Australia’s oldest research and scientific institution, the Garden holds a unique place in the nation’s intellectual life and as a popular recreation and visitor destination.

The new integrated masterplan is due to be unveiled in November 2013.  It will address the heritage of the Garden and its role, structure and future form; identify the means by which research and education can flourish; address the physical environment, facilities and character; and seek to establish a framework for a resilient and sustainable financial future for the Garden.

Keith French, director, Grant Associates said: “We’re delighted to be involved in this fascinating project. As the primary role of the Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust is for scientific research, we have to ensure a sustainable financial future and funding for this work, is balanced against the needs of heritage, education, recreation and as a tourist destination. It’s a real privilege to have the opportunity to play a small part in the future role of this amazing historic site.”

Located in Lewisham on the fringe of the Sydney city centre, the Alpha will form the cornerstone of the new McGill master plan prepared by Tony Owen Partners. Alpha’s distinctive design and style which sets it apart from other developments.

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.

Boustred House in Balmoral, Sydney, Australia by ian moore architects

Saturday, June 8th, 2013

Article source: ian moore architects

This project is located in Mosman on a north facing slope looking across Sydney’s Middle Harbour to the Spit Bridge and Clontarf. The site falls away dramatically from a broad and densely landscaped verge on the street frontage, with a high sandstone cliff forming the southern boundary. The house is nestled into this cliff, shielding it from the street, where it appears as a single storey, focusing attention on the magnificent view to the north. Entry is from the side street across a small bridge to a front door that opens to a grand stair descending the full height of the house and dividing it into two clearly differentiated volumes. The southern volume contains the service spaces, bathrooms, laundry, dressing room and a small study, while the northern volume contains the living areas and bedrooms. The glass roofed stair between these volumes has an ambiguous reading, neither inside nor out. It is only when one passes through a series of Oak framed portals that you are officially inside. The lowest level contains children’s bedrooms and a games/TV room that opens to the swimming pool terrace. An undercroft below this level contains the pool equipment and plant room. The middle level contains the main living areas, garage and a large north facing outdoor room opening off the kitchen and dining room. The upper level is given over to the main bedroom suite, home office, study and main entry. The simplicity of the external cement rendered form is enriched with an overlay of light bronze anodised aluminum windows, sliding doors and external sun control louvres, while the interior is defined by the Oak joinery and Travertine floors. The northern elevation is composed of a series of stepped cantilevered roofs and balconies with full height ellipsoid aluminium louvres screening the western facade from the afternoon sun and the neighbouring property.

Cosgriff House in Sydney, Australia by Christopher Polly Architect

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

Article source: Christopher Polly Architect

The project retains its original envelope as part of its environmental, economic and planning values. a substantial lower ground living volume is sensitively inserted beneath the original fabric to harness the fall in the site towards the rear, extending deeply beneath the existing dwelling and outwards towards the garden to transform it – while a re-crafted rear ground floor above enfolds the existing rhythm of front rooms over the new lower ground below.
