Corella Place is a 40-bed transitional facility, accommodating residents in 1, 2, & 3-bed accommodation. A key design feature is the Central recreation area which provides passive & active recreation opportunities, & a highly flexible administration area optimising staff amenity & safety. Close attention has been paid to allow for residents to be kept separate from others where necessary, whilst maintaining a non-punitive environment. Staff interaction is intentional and noticeable, but relaxed, maintaining supervision in a passive manner. The Masterplanning and building layouts were designed to optimise solar orientation, and facilitate natural ventilation. Residences are hydronically heated, reverse-veneer constructed (for thermal mass), naturally cooled, and all received between 6 and 7.2-stars on the First Rate assessments. Water use is being minimized through centralised rainwater collection for toilet flushing, subsurface irrigation from the storm water dam, and electronically controlled shower timers.

Seven Mile Beach Resort
Redevelopment of Seven Mile Beach Resort comprised the refurbishment of 20 existing apartments, the design of a further 40 units and a fantastic new reception, gym, games room, and pool area create a new resort image for the tired beach side facility. A challenge for any redevelopment project that adds to existing architecture, is the dialogue between the old and new. In the case of the Seven Mile Beach resort, the basis of this dialogue was a response to the environment in which it sits, and the dramatic way this changes in an exposed and wild location such as the south coast of Tasmania. The existing buildings were completely transformed, adding courtyards to offer protection from the elements and bringing the landscape closer to the guests, while the new structures respond to both the desire to experience the landscape, and to provide shelter and protection. Each of the various villa designs achieve this through different means, which aided in promoting the village atmosphere of the masterplan. The new accommodation is a mix of one, two, and three bedroom apartments in a variety of configurations and suite types. The rooms have been designed to feel open and spacious, particularly the penthouse and presidential suites. A large reception area has been accommodated along with an owner’s lounge, porte-cochere and the refurbishment of the existing, sauna, gymnasium and toilet facilities. Two new spas have been added to the redesigned pool area. Photography by Guymer Bailey Architects
This new luxury residence in the exclusive suburb of Malvern consists of 5 bedrooms (including lavish parent’s retreat), spacious living areas & feature light court. A central two-storey courtyard floods the centre of the house with light, and provides a focal point for the feature stair that is beautifully detailed in dark walnut. Access from the top of the stair to the parent’s retreat is via a bridge, suspended across the two-storey void. The parent’s retreat takes pride of place at the front of the site, with views to the north overlooking Malvern and Camberwell from the bed position and also from the balcony. Adjacent, north-light also floods the lavish ensuite with double shower and luxurious spa bath. Generous children’s bedrooms and private study nook sit comfortably upstairs at the rear of the property, some with views over the backyard, and others with views over the distant hills. The formal lounge and dining are at the centre of the house, looking out onto courtyards on both sides. A large open-plan family room and kitchen at the rear is the place for daily living, opening out onto the private rear paved courtyard. Photography by Bennison Mackinnon
