Barangaroo is being built on a vision that embodies all of Sydney’s unique harbour city character – the perfect place to work hard, do business or simply relax and enjoy the view. This is the brilliance of Sydney – an international city that retains enough of its laid back character to genuinely enjoy the fruits of all that hard work. And that is the brilliant work life balance of Barangaroo.

Tower Skin in Sydney, Australia by Laboratory for Visionary Architecture

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

Article source: LAVA

What initially began as a speculative proposal to reshape the UTS tower on Broadway has evolved into a broader architectural idea for re-purposing inefficient or outdated buildings as an alternative to demolishing and rebuilding ( which comes with a huge financial and environmental expense) LAVA has developed a simple, cost effective and easily constructed building skin that can potentially transform the identity, sustainability and interior comfort of an existing structure such as the UTS tower.

Eden Apartments in Sydney, Australia by Tony Owen Partners

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

The latest building by Tony Owen blurs the line between architecture and urban billboard. Work has commenced on the EDEN apartments in Sydney. This infill project is located in a varied and complex part of the Sydney cityscape and is visible from many vantages. The office sought to explore the possibilities of adding to the tapestry as a piece of art in the urban landscape. In a unique approach, the final image was chosen from an on-line poll of various options to allow the public to decide the streetscape of their city.

Haberfield House in Sydney, Australia by Lahznimmo Architects designed using ArchiCAD

Saturday, May 7th, 2011

The Sydney suburb of Haberfield was laid out to the principles of garden suburb design early in the twentieth century. High quality houses designed by estate architects were built for sale and strict covenants were placed on allotments to ensure a continuation of design intentions. Thus one of Australia’s best repositories of Federation era houses was built. Mostly the houses were modest in size, with generous backyards and represent an Arcadian version of the Australian suburb.
