Lovely Ladies Weekender

Walkerville, 2006

Residential architecture provides the opportunity to explore and develop existing practice philosophies. Our design for this home demonstrates how good architecture is accessible for all. The object finds contaxt through contrast with the adjacent remnant native bush. The shapes and sizes of the fenestration and openings have been considered for solar passive design and views. The orientation and layout of the building has been designed to minimize the building footprint and exploit environmental sustainable design key principals.

Infill Piece

Waverley Road, 2005

The infill piece as an architectural project demonstrates the ability for residential housing to continually evolve its typology. This project is the result of working with unique site constraints where the built form is enclosed on both sides and is backed onto a lane way. The bedroom and bath room areas have been lifted and connected to the ground floor building bulk via a bridge link, to allow movement from the lane to the court yard. This lifting of the building bulk also ensures natural light is passed to the living area and court yard on the ground floor, using environmental sustainable design principals to ensure high quality of design.
