Cylindrical Henley House in Victoria, Australia by Jackson Clements Burrows Pty Ltd Architects

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

Article source: Jackson Clements Burrows Pty Ltd Architects

Barwon Heads is in a period of significant change. Heritage overlays currently protect older fishing shacks whilst the less significant built fabric remaining in the seaside town is progressively being redeveloped and architecture is now significantly contributing to the evolution of this small coastal township. In this case a young family engaged JCB to design their new permanent residence which would replace a dilapidated 1950’s two storey house that was beyond repair. A sculptural building form emerged from the clients brief which jokingly requested a planetarium as an inclusion. This led to the exploration of circular forms and resulted in a circular skylight in the first floor living areas as a direct reference however the house was primarily conceived to immerse itself over time as a natural extension of the Ti-tree dominated landscape. The house is wrapped in as skin of vertical cedar battens (providing privacy and solar protection) which appear to emerge from the front fence intentionally confusing the relationship between built form and landscape.

Anglesea beach house in Victoria Australian by ANDREW MAYNARD ARCHITECTS

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Article source: ANDREW MAYNARD ARCHITECTS

More frequently holiday homes are becoming little more than transplanted suburban ugliness; the great Australian tradition of the ‘shack’ is in danger of being superseded by bloated mansions with four bathrooms and all the trappings of modern life.

Hover House in Victoria, Australia by Bower Architecture

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Article source: Bower Architecture

Hover house is a residence in beachside Mt. Martha (Victoria, Australia) which re-imagines the single dwelling courtyard. Site on a rear battle-axe block with minimal outlook, privacy or street frontage, the project brief was for a tranquil, sustainable and private home filled with natural light, warmth and texture. In response, the concept sought to create a captivating internal focus in the form of a private central courtyard, providing a strong link between key spaces. In order to maximise natural light and privacy a simple sectional gable shape was extruded through the east-west axis of the house, resulting in a form that efficiently collects rainwater, incorporates sustainable passive systems and emphasises views to distant gum tree canopies.

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.
