“Architects for Individuals” At LSA we believe every client is unique with differing needs, lifestyles and ideals. Before we commence the design we spend time to understand the person; we encourage our clients to explain what they like, building they hate, materials and textures they love, places that may have inspired them. All this enriches our understanding of the people we work for to enable us to do what we do best – fuse dreams with inspired designs. We provide the full range of architectural services from design to contract administration, we provide in-house interior design services and are fully versed in all requirements of the planning and building approval processes.

Argo Street Residence
South Yarra, 2010
This residence makes a statement within a densely populated, eclectic South Yarra streetscape, attracting your gaze and holding your attention as you approach, enter and explore the home. The first floor is the focal element of the building: a voluminous rectangular box with a contemporary external palette that commands attention. Three orange hues were individually applied to cement sheet panels in a random manner, creating contrast between the home and the colours of the sky as a backdrop. On entering the house, the white ceiling of the hallway abruptly gives way to the orange box above, reminding the viewer of their connection with the coloured volume seen from the exterior. Arched glazing either side of the dining area physically separates interior from exterior, yet enables views of the orange-clad ceiling wrapping to form the external walls of the first floor, increasing the connection to the exterior and the building as a whole. The intelligent, playful design delivers an airy, light-filled dwelling in a tight urban context. Interior and exterior constantly reference each other through colour and form, blurring boundaries and enhancing spaciousness.
