Bardon, QLD, 2010
The “Lockyer House” is a small, contemporary extension onto a post war house in Bardon, a heavily treed and hilly fringe suburb in Brisbane. The design looks to address two primary architectural issues, the first is about context and language, the second is about finding the “essence” of what is needed from an accommodation/ resource perspective in an effort to create a engaging but practical and economical outcome. The extension is essentially a “pod” added onto the end of a post
New Farm, QLD, 2009
The “Villiers Street House” is an overtly contemporary” pavilion/extension” to a Queenslander cottage on a typical small lot site in inner city Brisbane. The design looks to preserve the existing architectural vernacular on one hand while offering a challenging juxtaposition with the new built form. This contrast is clearly evident not only in the application of colour, material and form. The entry sequence through to the front door/ stair connection is the junction between old and new.
Brookfield, QLD, 2011
The Brookfield House is a contemporary interpretation of the 70’s Californian Modernist style. Taking its lead from a pre-existing Robin Gibson stone pavilion on the site, the new house looks to build on and reinvigorate this style of architecture. The design embraces rigorous, first principle environmental initiatives in order to achieve a timeless, robust and sustainable outcome.
