Redshift Architecture & Art
Redshift Architecture & Art was established by Michael Lewarne and Angelo Korsanos in 2006 as a studio for the exploration of architectural, urban and public art projects. Each place and programme is evaluated against a wide range of possible approaches, responses and scenarios, to build an understanding of each project’s intrinsic potential. This insight becomes a platform for investigation into the layered complexities of public versus private space; programmatic rigour versus poetic nuance, and the temporal richness of light, movement and purpose.

Dutton Street Apartments
As the first project built under Bankstown Council’s new Yagoona Town Centre plans, this was an opportunity to establish a benchmark. The project has been designed with an eye to future urban development whilst remaining sympathetic to the current context. Of foremost concern was achieving a high level of residential amenity, & ensuring this amenity in the future. It was, therefore, important to remain cognisant of potential impacts of the envisaged higher density developments in the town centre
Jacobs Street Apartments
Designed for the increasingly dense and urbanised Bankstown City Centre, the development comprises 55 apartments, including home offices. It has been configured as two residential towers located over a 3 storey carpark podium “clad” to the street by 2 & 3 storey residences. The towers have been arranged in a T-plan presenting a substantial and distinctive facade to the street, consisting of single storey two and three bedroom apartments, many with dual orientation. The rear tower consists of predominantly two bedroom two storey cross-over apartments, set back from the northern boundary affording a high level of solar access and privacy from the apartment building to the north.
Dulwich Hill Terraces
Dulwich Hill, 2013
The Dulwich Hill Row Housing project is a modest housing development providing richly nuanced housing in Sydney’s inner-west. Whilst compact, each house is afforded a high level of amenity through considered planning and a arrangement that takes full advantage of a north-easterly aspect. Terraces offer compact plans, good amenity, an economy of construction with greater surveillance and engagement of the street, thus generating a greater triple bottom-line return for highly sought after individual lot housing within the middle ring suburbs of Sydney. The Dulwich Hill Row Housing Project resuscitates the Victorian Terrace house as a model to fulfil the demand for quality housing in the established middle ring suburbs of Sydney.
