Martian Embassy Opens in Sydney, Australia by LAVA

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Article source: LAVA

THE MARTIANS HAVE LANDED And they’ve set up their very own embassy in inner city Sydney! The new embassy was designed by LAVA, with partners Will O’Rourke and The Glue Society, as a fusion of a whale, a rocket and a time tunnel, an immersive space of oscillating plywood ribs brought to life by red planet light and sound projections.

Tusculum Street Residence in Sydney, Australia by Smart Design Studio (designed using Bentley Microstation)

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

Article source: Smart Design Studio

This exciting renovation and extension of a turn-of-the-century terrace house in Sydney’s Potts Point focuses on a grand and gracefully spiralling stair that forms the pivotal junction of the old and new parts of the house. The staircase, spanning the width of the building, features delicate fan-like steel treads cantilevered from the central steel post and winding their way past six split levels, offset between the old and new sides of the house. The stair was conceived as the element that grafts the contemporary and new minimal structure to the refined, trimmed and formal older portion of the dwelling.

Elliott Ripper House in Sydney, Australia by Christopher Polly Architect

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

The project simply and directly extrapolates existing formal qualities in plan and section, with extension of key existing materials and finishes to retain some memory of its previous incarnation – while providing a significantly expanded series of connected interior volumes that harness access to sunlight, ventilation and views of tree canopies, sky and district beyond.

G House in Sydney, Australia by Bruce Stafford Architects (designed with SketchUp and AutoCAD)

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

Article source: Bruce Stafford Architects

A typical eastern Suburbs harbour view site; long, narrow and sloping away from the road toward harbour and Manly views.
As the house is set lower than the road with living spaces opening back toward the street, a lightweight timber screen filters street views and creates privacy, yet allows light and ventilation to the private living spaces. The house has two living levels; the primary living level opens out toward an elevated view and the lower living area flows out to a pool deck and private courtyards.

Balmain House in Sydney, Australia by Carter Williamson Architects (designed using Vectorworks)

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

Article source: Carter Williamson Architects

The original 1860’s home sits modestly on its block. Humble and unassuming, its appearance defines its cultural significance; the workers cottage preserves a ‘moment’ in the rich, blue-collar heritage and character of Balmain. Preserving and restoring the integrity of the existing cottage as part of the streetscape and the eclectic, urban fabric of Balmain was always fundamental to the design. Any addition needed to be sympathetic, sensitively yet distinctively bridging the divide between new and old.

Haines House in Sydney, Australia by Christopher Polly Architect

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

Article source: Christopher Polly Architect

Conceptual Framework - The proposal provides a model for grafting a singular substantial volume to an existing single storey semi-detached dwelling while capturing a centrally retained bathroom within the new volume, enabling old and new fabric to enmesh a unique spatial sequence along the length of the dwelling counter intuitive to popular planning methods – to improve the physical and visual relationships to the new rear garden, while harnessing improved access to sunlight, natural ventilation and views to borrowed landscapes and sky beyond.
