Dark Horse

In the heart of the house, the living areas
open onto a courtyard. The high-ceilinged corridors pinwheel out from this heart, establishing a sunlit centre around which
most daily activity occurs.

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

, light and shade.

The Summit

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

Partly inspired by its original 1950s suburban home and 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.

Once at a time

breath upon breath
stopping once at

unto each
a breath's thread

hang the light like
a sheet

the earth to the sky

so low...)

now the trade winds
blow by

Hip & Gable

With Hip & Gable, Architecture architecture pays homage to a dignified, long-serving Californian Bungalow, while enticing it to say
a little more and to do a little more too.

Park Life

Park Life is a highly contextual extension in Williamstown North. This contemporary design responds to the principles of the ‘garden city’, integrating home, garden and streetscape. In doing so, it continues the vision for the area as laid out by the Housing Commission of Victoria in the 1940s.
