Spensley Street Primary School
Clifton Hill, 2011
The project was funded via the Federal Government’s Building Education Revolution (BER) initiative. Spensely Street Primary School, which was rebuilt after a fire in 1972, subscribes to a multi-year learning and teaching approach in which classes of varying age groups share a series of large, flexible learning spaces. The school sought to add area for the arts and recreation that would further enhance this approach. At level 1 the extension joins with an existing breezeway running north-south to form a sheltered terrace that adjoins an art room and general purpose classroom. The terrace allows space for art classes to expand into the open air as well as providing additional shelter for students at recess and lunch times. The project has been executed in line with the agreed program and budget .1.
Angelucci Architects was commissioned by developer Raphael R Russell Pty Ltd to subdivide an existing significant heritage building into 2 luxury townhouses. We transformed the existing 160m2 Californian Bungalow with a 315m2 extension and divided the resulting area to create 2 generous floor plans of functional and aesthetic integrity. The need for a body corporate was avoided with the two sites gaining planning approval to be granted separate green titles. Whilst the approach to the house maintained an unassuming street presence, the interiors were afforded an unexpected level of light and spaciousness by the rear extension. In addition to providing additional area in the form of a first floor, the plans included a series of garden terrace and atrium spaces that give a sense of harmonious integration of indoor and outdoor spaces. Every room in the house provides the occupant with a feeling of connection to the outdoors. We consciously avoided a floor plan logic that involved corridors allowing for optimal utilisation of space and a feeling of connectedness and continuity. The project was considered highly successful by the developer and the properties remain highly sought after.
Lean to house
Angelucci Architects were commissioned by the client to renovate and extend an existing single storey Edwardian cottage. We took advantage of the limited budget by identifying subtle architectural devises that extended the internal experience of space, whilst using inexpensive current building methods. The lean to house takes the notion of the traditional rear lean to and skews the roof to extenuate the experience of internal space.
