Housing East St Kilda

East St Kilda, 2008

The design for this block of eight north facing units in East St Kilda was intended to create an aesthetic link between the neighbours on either side: a Federation cottage and a 60’s brick walk up block of flats. Towards the rear of the site, the north facing fa’ade was designed from the perspective of the neighbour’s yards, creating a bush landscape with the vertical lines and gum colours with a play on light and shadow.

School Inverloch

Inverloch, 2011

The innovative new Inverloch Primary School is a canvas; it is a front, a fence and an invitation to draw the community into an activated shared landscape. Through the dark fronted feature entry reveals a contrasting light inland landscape, generous externalised circulation and outdoor learning focusing on a feature court. New buildings are organised in a linear fashion. Class spaces are clustered to form ‘learning houses’ interconnected by covered ways. The design celebrates its place by adopting the form and function of nearby Anderson Inlet, funnelling access through a central main entry. An internal courtyard is a literal translation of the Inverloch coastline to create a seat-edge to the outdoor assembly area. A building profile and section were designed, amongst other things, in response to passive solar response, ventilation, natural light and acoustics. The section is a prototype adapted along the length of the building to best-fit the program within.
