ARMADALE 15 months / 2010
ARCHITECT Matt Gibson, A + D Architects
PHOTOGRAPH Shannon McGrath

From the leafy streetscape the Armadale house looks modest, at ease and in relation with its surroundings and neighbouring homes. Yet over the roofline there are glimpses of a whimsical wonderland within, luring and begging to be explored.

This leading edge build is designed around the functionality of a modern day family home yet it never subsides its beauty in favour of practicality. The home is set out over three main areas. The front end of the residence is a dramatic and romantic haven for the parents to retreat and relax from a busy and hectic day. The rear of the house is for the entertaining and practicality of family life. And the first floor is a spacious and lively area for the children to play, create and have fun. The different areas of the build entice you to explore and search every nook and cranny.

The Armadale house is an example of design effectiveness.

FITZROY 17 months / 2011
ARCHITECT Andrew Simpson Architects
PHOTOGRAPHY Christine Francis © 2014

Unashamedly bold and liberating transformation of a dilapidated 1830 heritage horse stable. Sited at the apex of two narrow bluestone Fitzroy laneways is now a glowing three-levelled futuristic, efficient, sustainable and savvy residential abode. Through ingenious use of steel, together with glass and recycled timbers (reused from the existing structure), delivered an intriguingly brilliant flagship of response to modernistic architectural urban housing.

FITZROY 2016
ARCHITECT Phil Harmer Architect
PHOTOGRAPHY Jonathan Hadiprawira

The design is an exploration of the courtyard house type, two storey form emerging from a perimeter of lower brick walls, which define the site boundaries.

The perimeter walls and the house itself are an investigation into the materiality of two materials – terracotta and timber.

Walls are clad in either brick or terracotta roof tiles whilst timber battens form sunscreens, fencing and wall cladding all in the same pattern.

FITZROY 2015
ARCHITECT Julie Firkin Architects
PHOTOGRAPHY

Within this Victorian era terrace house, a sequence of airy, cascading spaces responds to the natural fall of the site. The kitchen and dining area opens out onto a large, secluded north-facing courtyard garden. The stair winds past a study nook to the private accommodation upstairs.

This design achieved a 7 star energy rating. Leading ESD consultants were engaged to open up possibilities for environmentally sustainable design in the areas of water, energy and material use. Acoustic consultants were also engaged so as to ensure that this home is a tranquil retreat within a bustling, inner-suburban neighbourhood.
