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.

Visualising the Mermaid Beach Residence Queensland

The Mermaid Beach Residence is a new family home positioned along a surf beach in Queensland. Working with clients with an appreciation of concrete, the building was designed primarily of exposed concrete internally, as well as externally, with the addition of timber shutters on the external windows to protect against the sun and weather conditions. The new renderings show the building’s design which positions the entry along the side of the building, opening into the “heart” of the house, with immediate views of the pool and graduated views to the beach.

Elm Slab Table

In wanting the furnishings to add something new, we sometimes look for something with interesting, inherent qualities that can lead to a piece that has a strong narrative of its own. The Elm Slab Table is one such creation. The piece was not so much a design to be drawn and then built but a process between the material itself and a series of slow interventions by talented tradesmen to bring the idea to life. Through that process, the table itself is an exploration of that particular tree and a celebration of the craft required to fashion that story into a dining table. It is a substantial and essential component that sits comfortably within the context of the room and provides a meaningful point to gather around.

The softer side of the Armadale Residence

You may be familiar with the architecture for the Armadale Residence but you may not be aware that B.E Architecture has also completed the interior design for the new home. We like to approach each architectural project as an individual response to our clients, and as we extend into the interiors that is an even more important consideration. Within the lightly coloured granite structure, the interiors of the Armadale Residence have an unmistakable sense of fun which comes directly from the clients’ personalities.

Introducing the St Vincents Place Residence

As a modern renaissance home, the St Vincents Place Residence is a new archetype developed through reinterpretation of classical references. The client, as a patron, put his belief in architecture, artists and artisans to create a nourishing environment that goes beyond surface treatments by inscribing contemplative experiences into the physical form.

We are pleased to share images of the project, which is now included in our portfolio.

B.E develops custom mirror with integrated light and storage

The B.E Architecture designed round mirror is deceptively simple, concealing several functions into one sleek shape. An integrated light illuminates around the mirror to light the face for makeup application and shaving. Tucked behind the mirror is a discrete compartment which replaces unsightly medicine cabinets. With the aim of improving the daily rituals of life, the round mirror design streamlines the practicalities of a bathroom mirror and enhances the experience.

Spring buds on 38-year-old grape vine

Typically in a new house, the landscaping is also new and takes more than a couple of years to establish. On a recent period restoration, we were faced with needing to use more established plants to contribute to the feeling of age through the project. Fortuitously, B.E Architecture’s design Director Broderick Ely noticed a mature ornamental grape vine in a suburban back yard while driving through Vermont. Standing taller than Brod, the vine was craned into the central courtyard of the inner city property. A custom stone planter was designed by B.E Architecture and crafted from a steel frame and shards of stone and covered in moss. The branches run the entire length of the terrace along the fence and are supported by custom hand-forged wrought iron brackets. The vine is now budding in its first Spring, as if it has always been there.
