Hawthorn Residence Renderings

B.E Architecture has been developing a design for a new family home in Hawthorn. The positioning of the house is set down into the landscape in the front set back, working with the slope which falls below the street level. The entry to the house becomes a secluded area and a reflection pond is positioned between the front boundary wall and the façade along the main entry path into the house.

Rooftop spa made from bluestone

Elevated three levels above Albert Park, the rooftop terrace at the St Vincents Place Residence overlooks views to the Melbourne city skyline. Tucked inconspicuously onto the roof is a feature spa, custom designed in bluestone. The initial drawings for the design were deceptively simple, but the execution proved to be more than a little challenging. The spa itself was constructed off-site and craned onto the roof. Complex curves were carved from solid pieces of stone in order to create the continuous form in bluestone. The steps leading into the spa are formed by three overlapping cylinders of solid bluestone. The spa is positioned to make use of the city views and is surrounded by a landscaped terrace with a BBQ and refrigerator to create a self-contained entertainment area.

The Balgowlah Heights Residence in Sydney

We would like to introduce our latest project we are currently designing in Sydney. We have been producing projects in Sydney for more than 15 years and it’s an area we always enjoy working in. The city’s topology and climate encourages different conversations and ultimately requires a distinctive architectural response. The design for the Balgowlah Heights Residence has now moved from a concept stage to a defined plan and form. It has been a pleasure developing the ideas for the project with our clients who are enthusiastic and open to new ideas and willing to push the boundaries to create their family home. The proposed design is a series of stepped terraces that traverse the steeply sloping site and opens directly onto the foreshore of Reef Bay.

The James Street Residence Complete

We are delighted to share completed images of the James Street Residence which is a family home perched on a hill in Richmond. The building is made from two distinct parts – a restoration of the existing home which revitalises one of the first examples of a kit home in Australia and a modern extension as a distinct point of difference. Together the two create a cross section through architectural history along James Street. Each component creates its own distinct vernacular.

Patchwork leather bedhead

Vogue Living’s Melbourne Editor, Annemarie Kiely referred to the custom-designed patchwork leather bedhead as “deserving of Abba’s Agnetha Faltskog, circa the 1970’s”. Her observations are in line with the original design intent, which is a reference to the patchwork style clothing popular in the 70’s. The idea was sparked on a routine visit to the Arthur G factory, when our Design Director, Broderick Ely came across the mountains of leather off-cuts. He was naturally inclined to imagine the opportunities to design upholstered furniture that could make use of this resource.
