Norman Disney & Young Office
West Melbourne, 2008
Today’s office interiors need to provide a healthy, comfortable work environment and express a strong corporate image to serve as a marketing and recruitment tool. E+ Architecture wanted to ensure that this office represented a model for future developments by their client, Norman Disney and Young – a multi-disciplinary building services consultancy and leader in ESD, whose aim was to achieve a Green Star rating of 5 for ‘Design’, ‘Interiors’ and ‘As Built’ categories. Within the perimeter of an existing engineering foundry, volume, materials and colour have been employed to express the client’s corporate image. The stairs are designed using a skin of tensioned wires as a balustrade and combine with the open plan office to promote physical and visual interaction. To create an indoor oasis, the break-out area was given the colours of greens, yellows and browns while custom designed lights feature scenes from the city’s botanical gardens. To facilitate components of the client’s philosophy such as training, research and technology, E+ Architecture added value to the building’s services, exposing them as an on-site study medium for staff and clients and celebrating them aesthetically as an integral part of NDY’s role ‘ contributing to the building’s restrained technical and industrial ambiance.
Brighton, Melbourne, 2009
Within metres of one of Melbourne’s pristine bayside beaches, this home conveys a relaxed, beachside style with a contemporary elegance. Catering for a family of four, with areas for guest accommodation and a home office, e+ architecture has designed this home to be stylish yet functional and easy to maintain. The home features two living zones, one for family gatherings and guest entertainment and a second area for private relaxation with tranquil views of the bay. The narrow site informed the design, with glass and skylights used to maximise visual space and openness. Large glazed doors expand the living areas and link into the outside entertaining and swimming pool areas, while the double glazed skylights over the living area allow sunlight to flood inside.
Girton Grammar School
Bendigo, Victoria, 2010
The Wattle Street Campus would realise one of the major objectives of the original Opportunities Paper – the establishment of a Senior Campus. The first stage of this project, which has been designed – incorporates facilities for Senior Staff, the beginnings of the Performing Arts Facility, together with general Teaching Facilities. The building is innovative in its design, and again provides flexible space and introduces a ‘black box’ of two-storey volume capable of accommodating 150 students/people, providing great opportunities for drama and music. The building is linked back to the Morey Building with a bridge at first floor level. The design is dynamic and allows for the Classroom space to open out into the future School courtyard areas. Stage 2 of the Wattle Street Campus, which is only Conceptual at this time, includes the remaining Teaching Spaces, a new Library, an Auditorium and the Senior School Recreation Spaces.
