Unfurled House in Sydney, Australia by christopher polly architect

Wednesday, June 20th, 2018

Article source: christopher polly architect

An articulated two-storey framed volume is sensitively stitched to the rear original fabric, while retaining its front Federation masonry and hipped envelope as part of its environmental, economic and planning values. It has a sectional split-level relationship to the original house that harnesses the fall of the site to the rear, enabling the cellular front plan to vertically and horizontally unfurl into a series of connected interior spaces that expand to its setting.

Double Bay in Sydney, Australia by SAOTA

Sunday, June 17th, 2018

Article source: SAOTA

A youthful yet sophisticated contemporary family dwelling on the Sydney Harbour shore

Set in a north-facing cove in Sydney’s vast natural harbour, the site borders a recreational park and a public pier which juts out into the bay. This element forms one axis for the site whilst a pristine beach, directly in front of the site, forms another.

The Books House in Sydney, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Architects

Monday, June 11th, 2018

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Architects

A Calligrapher handed three books to his wife, she placed them in a random stack on the table… “We want The Books House”… they said.

The Architect understood that the books were not only a reference to a home he had previously designed named The Six Degrees of Separation, but also to the ledges and shelves of Sydney-Hawkesbury sandstone outcrops that surface on the steep escarpments of the northern side of Sydney Harbour, including the block of land owned by the Calligrapher and the Businesswoman.

Tama’s Tee Home in Sydney, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Architects

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Architects

‘Tama’ is short for Tamarama: a Sydney beach suburb, famous for its hedonistic surf culture, gradually being gentrified by a population that exchanges stock market tips while running barefoot to the ocean with a surfboard tucked under their arms.

House Frances in Sydney, Australia by THOSE ARCHITECTS

Wednesday, April 25th, 2018

Article source: THOSE ARCHITECTS 

NOT SO SUBURBAN, SUBURBAN. A new dwelling where a generous visual and physical connection to the greater suburban block is the imperative.

Sydney, Australia. Traditionally, regardless of orientation the Australian suburban block is longer than it is wide. Typically, dwellings are built to the side boundary setback in order to maximise the floor plate along its length. The result is often a feeble connection to the rear yard rendering it the bastion of the weekend bbq and resulting in poor solar access, inefficient circulation and suffering from a lack of natural ventilation. Further, in the absence of a panoramic view, as is the case with this house, the result can leave one feeling walled in, constrained and disconnected.

Maybanke in Sydney, Australia by Allen Jack+Cottier Architects Pty Ltd

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

Article source: v2com 

Design ingenuity and a dose of respect for its original Gothic Revival bones deliver a blighted 1870s harbourside home in Sydney into the 21st century.

CROSSING THE GOTHIC REVIVAL threshold of Maybanke, the waterfront home on Sydney Harbour with a distinguished history, is to traverse 150 years in a few short steps.

Panoramic water views, an abundance of penetrating antipodean light and a five-storey sculptural stair – that together would surely have befuddled and amazed the 1870s sensibilities of the individuals who built the original building – leave the modern visitor in no doubt which century this home now squarely belongs.

Cricket Pitch House in Sydney, Australia by Scale Architecture

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

Article source: Scale Architecture

The Cricket Pitch House is a free standing dwelling in North Bondi, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

The client’s brief for a five bedroom house is centred on a garden suitable for backyard cricket for the growing family.

Located in a well-established suburban part of Sydney, the building’s form recalls the pitched roofs of its environs. The roof ridge runs diagonally across building, creating four different facades, each responding to their orientation.

Palm Beach Project in Sydney, Australia by Alexander&Co

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

Article source: Alexander&Co

Palm Beach House project is the transformation of an existing waterfront holiday villa in Palm Beach, Sydney. The project is a restrained approach to a traditional European vernacular, exploring bespoke quality detailing, materiality and architectural framing.

With the existing house ineffectively dealing with scale limitations, the brief was primarily to explore how we could reintroduce a higher quality of spatial resolution. The plans and volumes were subsequently rationalized around better circulation, view corridors and access to the water.
