The office sought to explore the possibilities of adding to the tapestry as a piece of art in the urban landscape. The project comprises 24 apartments consisting of a mix of 1bed, 2 bed and 3 bed penthouses. The project is located in a narrow laneway adjoining apartments to the east, and looks onto the Frasers Central Park development to the west.

The Rose Bay Apartments project comprises 11 residential units, 2 shops and a basement carpark on a compact urban site.

The plan form of the building is a T form providing all units with cross ventilation. On each typical floor, two units face the street as a continuous street wall in accordance with Woollahra Council’s DCP for Rose Bay (also prepared by Hill Thalis). The upper levels have views towards the harbour and the leafy elevated outlook towards Vaucluse. Roof top terraces are provided to upper level apartments of the building. A third unit to the rear of the property is liberated from the property boundaries and shares no common walls with its neighbours – looking towards the extensive harbour and city views to the northwest.

Perry Park in Sydney, Australia by Hassell

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Article source: Hassell

As part of a limited competition for the City of Sydney, HASSELL undertook the challenge to rejuvenate Perry Park in the inner-Sydney suburb of Alexandria.

Taking the themes of sport and ecology, the HASSELL response provides for a range of passive and active recreational activities within a park and wetland setting. Our goal was to create a destination for both individuals and groups; a place where sport and ecology mix seamlessly, support and complement one another in a balanced environment.

Majestic Theatre Apartments in Sydney by Hill Thalis Architecture + Urban Projects

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Article source: Adrian Chan

The Majestic Theatre was built in 1921 as a substantial brick building with a strongly worked, rendered façade to New Canterbury Road. It is suspected that the original building housed vaudeville productions, as there was modest stage area, and very small back of house.

The quality of the architectural fabric, and its strong urban presence saw the building retained and transformed for new uses when the theatre ceased operation. This led to a series of modifications and new uses over time.

Located in the Sydney suburb of Castlecrag this home maintains its original presentation to the street, but is transformed internally from a cellular and inward-looking mid-20th century brick house to a contemporary, open and light-filled home. The natural beauty of timber is fundamental to this dwelling’s transformation which embraces the ideals of Walter Burley Griffin’s design legacy for Castlecrag – “Building for Nature”.

Seacliff House in Sydney, Australia by Chris Elliott Architects

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Article source: Chris Elliott Architects

A house for a family of four.

Everyday life occurs on a platform overlooking the sea. Beneath this the rock is carved out to form a grotto. Above the platform is a protective cocoon for sleeping. Astride all this at roof level sits a belvedere accessible only via a narrow curved stair, as in a Martello tower.
