Parure House in Victoria, Australia by Architects EAT

Saturday, July 12th, 2014

Article source: Architects EAT

The Parure House (that is, a set of jewellery to be adorned together at once) is an exercise in abject darkness versus stark light; the compact crossed with the open, and closeted privacy against unabashed experiences of the exterior environment.

Amidst the need to maximise space and storage ‐ requiring full expansion to the boundaries of the land, windows (and also facade) were almost left to the wayside. Internal volume was the constant throughout the design. Punctuations in the external building fabric articulate the interior with strong exterior connections, even in such localised context.

TREE HOUSE (SEPARATION CREEK) in Victoria, Australia by Jackson Clements Burrows Pty Ltd Architects

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Article source:  Jackson Clements Burrows Pty Ltd Architects

Sited in the bush fringe of Separation Creek Victoria, the project is perched on a steep forested hillside above the Great Ocean Road and Bass Strait. The tree house draws on the modest local vernacular of 1950’s painted fibro shacks with cement sheet lining and expressed battens over joints. The sculptural form and associated colour scheme allow the built form to both connect with the landscape and to dissolve within it.

THORNBURY HOUSE in Victoria, Australia by Mesh Design Projects

Friday, February 14th, 2014

Article source: Mesh Design Projects 

The home is located in Thornbury, an inner northern suburb of Victoria (Australia) which has a number of early century homes, whose aesthetic we admire. We therefore didn’t want to change the nearly 100 year old part of our house, nor the street scape but were looking for a contemporary renovation that suited our needs.Whilst we also required a basic open plan design we didn’t want to live in a large open box and wanted defined areas of functionality.

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

Article source: Christopher Megowan Design

As the name suggests, the Convertible Courtyards House, Christopher Megowan Design, kinetically adapts to the notoriously variable climate found in Melbourne, Australia. This project added a kitchen, living area, dining area, bathroom, master bedroom, ensuite and two decks to a previously overlooked yet charming weatherboard cottage in the inner urban suburb of Prahran. Nestled on an intimate street, the existing house is one of a series of heritage protected cottages.

The Dandenong Precinct Energy Project in Victoria, Australia by PETER HOGG + TOBY REED ARCHITECTS

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013


The Dandenong Precinct Energy Project (P.E.P.) is a flagship project in the implementation of low carbon energy generation in Victoria. The P.E.P. will supply the buildings in a 7 hectare redevelopment precinct with electricity and heating thermal energy (Cogeneration) in the form of hot water with twice the efficiency of a typical gas fired power station, with less than half the carbon emissions of a coal fired power station. In addition, some building’s will utilize the hot water produced to run absorption chillers to provide cooling, resulting in even greater efficiencies, and further reduced emissions.

The Infinity Centre in Keilor East, Victoria, Australia by McBride Charles Ryan

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

Article source: McBride Charles Ryan

The Infinity Centre, the new campus for Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School senior students, is derived from the initial idea that the library, a learning hub, is central to the school. We also wanted a building that offered protection from a windswept site and signified the merging of two schools, Penleigh Presbyterian Ladies’ College and Essendon Grammar School for boys.
