Manly NSW, 2014
The Hacienda | Big Ideas for a Small Art Deco Apartment Location: Manly, Sydney Northern Beaches NSW Floor area: 42sqm Scope of service: Concept design through to construction administration. Collaborators: Builder: Anthony Joseph, East Coast Homes; Joinery: Erich Gruber, Fine Earth Joinery; Engineer: Charles Blumer, SDA Structures Program: The brief was to breath new life into an un-renovated 42sqm one bedroom apartment from the 1930s to provide sufficient relax, play and work spaces for a young professional couple. New work was designed to incorporate as much of the existing structure and character of the art deco apartment as possible, for both economic reasons as well as to respect the original detailing and design intent. Oak floors were revealed below worn carpet, original wall chamfers echoed in new joinery and partitions. The original brick storage cupboards were retained and made into structural elements, then re-lined to perform new functions. Wall hung joinery floats across the polished oak floors of the living room, new programs are contained within; fold-out office / desk and also a media centre. The joinery continues towards the bedroom and becomes a wardrobe and bulk store. Pattern and colour come from the inherent qualities of the materials themselves. Transforming a cluttered and cramped apartment into a to spacious, calm and joyful home for two.

Bondi Junction NSW, 2012
The brief called an affordable strategy to turn this building into a habitable and useful structure to assist in the day-to-day business of providing accommodation, as well as associated youth services held onsite such as driving lessons, education and training. A design strategy was developed in close consultation with the client, and rather than starting from scratch it was decided to retain the existing brick walls and footprint of the garage. The concept was to minimise disruption to the streetscape while also retaining and respecting the existing layers of social heritage on the site, the bounding walls of the garage contributing a unique layer (or story) in the rich tapestry of buildings that surround the site. Working within the original walls of the garage, a floating skillion roof sloping up to the north is introduced to achieve habitable room height below, scooping natural light and ventilation into the spaces below via louvre highlight windows to the north and polycarbonate translucent panels to the east and west gables. The new roof rests on three independent portal frames freeing up the brick outer skin to be used as an external cladding that is immediately at one with its context. The building employs passive solar design to moderate the internal temperature naturally for most of the year.
