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

Williamstown North

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.
1690

Arcadia

Notions of home are as much a projection of our dreams and memories as they are the bricks and linen cupboards that anchor them. Tangled in the sheets of inner-urban Melbourne, Arcadia is a fever dream of pastoral histories.

Arcadia

, perpetual blush.
1413

Dark Horse

The play of tones establishes a subtle field of spaces that expand and contract, creating moments of generosity and intimacy.
Location

Brunswick East

Dark Horse

, a handsome creature.

Vivarium

In time this house will be consumed by its gardens. Already the buzz of pollination fills the air: bees, blowies and butterflies. Nestled between three native crops, nature has the jump start.

Vivarium

, turning in, turning out.

RMIT City Campus

Within this environment of high spatial drama, terraced seating and planting establish inviting human-scaled amphitheatres.

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.

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

, that's sharp.

Periwinkle

The common periwinkle (or winkle) is a robust intra-warehouse species within the renovation family, characterised by a mostly neutral shell with rosy flourishes about the inner-ablution.
Location

Fitzroy

Periwinkle

, unique among its genus.
1700
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
