New projects are regularly commencing in the studio. With each of these exciting opportunities we explore a series of design options where we continuously challenge ideas until it reaches a point where the project develops a distinct identity and begins to take on its own momentum. These are some of the projects as they are developing in the studio.

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 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.

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.

Design for Alma Road Residence

We’ve been working up designs for a new project – the Alma Road Residence in Armadale. Working with the clients, we have developed a building that is a quiet, simple form that separates two gardens. At the cross point of the main volumes, a gentle curve in the façade creates a continuous juncture. The skin of the building is made up of vertically laid white clay bricks, supplied from Spain, with matching flush struck mortar.

Designing Musk Creek Residence

Situated just below the crest of a hill in Flinders, the Musk Creek Road Residence is formed by a curving retaining wall following the shape of the property’s slope. Protected from winds by outer buildings, a central courtyard is formed, looking across the rural landscape to the ocean beyond. The entire estate was designed as an integrated master plan including a dwelling as well as landscaped gardens, broader site plantings, water collection, equipment storage and access. All the elements work together to support the complex realities of providing comfortable living on a rural country property.
