Bridge House designed by FIGR. Architecture & Design. Photographed by Tom Blachford and styled by Ruth Welsby.

The Courtyard House is a gesture to the convention of the Italian Palazzo and Australian patio house.

At the street elevation, Datum House takes subtle signals from the neighbouring properties in roof shape and material references.

This project investigates a novel model of medium density housing that exploits disused, contaminated land for public and private use.

Situated in the maritime district of the Yarra River, this project aspires to revitalise the area carrying a human scale to a harsh and intimidating open area.

Six Degrees goal for this project was to take advantage of the site context and outlooks, all within a simple and cost efficient structure.

A high state of usefulness, adaptability, communication and detail in a house with high roofs, a high roofline and large amounts of natural light.

On account of prescience, the area was reconfigured to give luxuries to four kids, guardians and companions.

The glazed roof floats as if it were a leaf on a tree branch and connects the interior to the external landscape, capturing views of the trees and sky.

While the space has the interest of some spatial dramatisation, the design's prosperity is measured by the nature of the atmosphere and intimacy of the inside.

A courtyard typology ensures privacy and access to northern winter sun, yet in this straight forward plan a number of ‘in-between’ spaces have been considered.

The brief for Kennedy Nolan was to create and design a house which would comfortably accommodate seven people in a highly sustainable building.

KN's architectural approach illustrates the trajectory of the site – it is an adaptive re-use which clarifies & intensifies the perception of its change of use.

On a sloping site in leafy Kew, Rob Kennon Architects replaced a contextually non-responsive 1980s renovation to this Edwardian, semi-detached duplex dwelling.

Anchored to a steep site near the Yarra River, In-situ House has a strong respect for materials.

A transformation of a grainy brick warehouse, in the timeworn manufacturing region of Fitzroy, into a family home.

Direct & dappled light play throughout living spaces against textured surfaces & a central fireplace element which balances openness & defined spaces.

Brick walls & sculptural use of timber typify the use of raw yet restrained materials that combine with the fine grain offered by brass & steel detailing.
