Doll’s House in Victoria, Australia by BKK Architects

Thursday, July 16th, 2015

Article source: BKK Architects

Dolls House is an idea about providing flexible, highly sustainable living that is responsive to its context and able to adapt to the changing needs of a family over a long life-span. The first known Doll’s house, originally called a ‘baby house’ in 1557 was a showcase for local creatives and craftspeople to display their wares. The Dolls House later became a play thing for children; a space of imagination. Shared ideas of creativity, craftsmanship, play and imagination underpin this house, whilst also mirroring the flexibility of the Doll’s house where a bedroom can become a living room or dining room by simply moving furniture or joinery. The new addition is largely made up of two spaces stacked upon each other, with no doors or walls, just furniture and joinery to divide space and imply use. The two levels of the house are treated quite distinctly; the lower sunk below grade and heavily grounded, whilst the upper is soaring into the treetops. The new addition frees up the plan of the old house where the former living and dining areas have become a flexible buffer space with an artist studio and playroom that place creativity and play at the centre of the home.

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.
