Fifty Fifty

Partly inspired by the original 1950s home, partly by the modernist Case Study houses of the same decade. 1950s meets 1950s. About half of each. We’re talking fifty-fifty vision. That’s sharp.
Location

Murrumbeena

Fifty Fifty

The Kite

Inside and out, the roof rests like a canopy. Sky and foliage are ever-present. Light filters in from all sides marking the passage of a day, while overhead, triangles beget triangles, folding and multiplying against the sky like barely tethered kites.
Location

Albert Park

The Kite

, barely tethered.

The Summit

A curved wall of glass emulates the roof form, bending inwards to create a side courtyard. With glass and garden on all sides, the house is awash with natural light.
Location

Malvern

The Summit

, grounded and lofty.

Park Life

Curious neighbours slow their cars. From between the trees across a vast nature strip, a fence-like shed with a cyclops eye peers back at them. ‘Whose world is this?’ they ask.
Location

Park Life

, from between the trees.

Once at a time
when the sky
hung so low that we
breath upon breath
stopping once at
at each floor (hold)

unto each
a breath's thread

hang the light like
a sheet




strap
the earth to the sky
(well it once hung
so low...)

now the trade winds
blow by

Among Buildings

, between the physical and imaginative realms

The Skin Job

An assemblage of generous openings, bench seats and a fireplace re-animate an otherwise ordinary red-brick façade.
Location

Hawthorn

The Skin Job

, like tears in rain.

Hip & Gable

A reclining hip casually slouches over the bedroom wing, while an attentive gable stands to attention over the more formal living spaces. Side by side, they are like the ears of a dog, one alert and the other playful, ready for whatever comes next.
Location

Kew East

Hip & Gable

, jaunty gables, casual hips.
1523

Together Apart

Where once they shared a womb, now they share a room; twin girls needing their own space, yet wanting to stay close too.
Location

Hawthorn

Together Apart

, a room for twins.
1832

Stage Left

Stage Left is a place of anticipation and reflection; a place to gather and collect with friends and ideas, before and after a show. The prologue and the epilogue. A natural extension of the Arts Centre Melbourne experience.
Location

Melbourne CBD
