Stoked to have finally experienced a long time favourite building and inspiration in Seattle today - St Ingasi Chapel by Steven Holl, built 1997 Skylight detail

last month

Annual RSA boat trip is booked. Looking forward to more waves like this one from last year - heading towards Monkey’s Corner with its custodian supervising from the channel. @sumatran_surfariis Just got to get @ware_architects and @alexcleary onboard

X-Ray of our office. When you take a break from drawing at night, go outside and look back this is what you see.

One coffee with water = 3 single objects made on earth and thrown back to the earth after one single short use. Of the 3 pictured, one is low grade recyclable, 2 non recyclable, but all 3 are usually discarded together into big plastic bag lined bins. Take out packaging is bad enough but cafes that only provide single use containers don’t make sense.

April 2019

Mountains containing the urban sprawl like a dam. 3 of 4 of Reyner Banham’s ‘Ecologies’ on show here. As he observed half a century ago - down there you can find everything from “Tacoburger Aztec to Wavy-line Moderne, from Cape Cod to unsupported Jaoul vaults, from Gourmet Mansardic to Polynesian Gabled and even – in extremity – Modern Architecture.” Not so much has changed. All surrounded by epic, arid and beautiful mountain ranges.

Kitchen and dining area of my own home. A part time building renovation project slowly coming together.

August 2018

Our restoration and extension of a mid 20th century factory with a beautifully asymmetric brick facade. Argyle Street, Fitzroy. The thin steel windows above operate to allow air flow through the office spaces from the back courtyard garden. A new entry opening offers a glimpse of gardens and staggered mezzanines within.

April 2018

Construction progress shot of a current office project of ours in Melbourne. A long and narrow site - with only two standard windows available at one short end means - natural light and the movement of the sun and weather throughout the day (important daily experiences ) are provided through the layered ceiling / roof system. Built by @marinoconstructionmanagement

April 2018

Front end of our studio building. Subtle tweaks to, and the restoration of, an existing light weight building. An old and well understood form reinvented to provide continuity.

Bathroom pavilion. The walls are translucent and along with high clear glazed windows, the movement of light and weather and the surrounding trees are experienced from the inside. Photo @arorygardiner

Sleeping and kitchen pavilions together. The ever burning camp fire sits between them. Another shot from our bush camp project in southern Australia. Photo by @arorygardiner

March 2018

A sleeping pavilion in southern Australia. Accompanied by dining and bathing pavilions and forming stage 1 of a current project of ours - see preceding post. Raised above the ground to allow animals, water and air to pass under. The north and south sides are glazed for bedside animal and weather watching. The north side is sheltered by a large Banksia tree. Translucent east and west faces open up to provide views across the water towards Wilsons Promontory, and to grasses and large gum trees up the hill. A fine steel mesh upper triangle provides cross ventilation at night. Based on precedent works by Chancellor & Patrick, Peter McIntyre, Sean Godsell and Kenzo Tange.

February 2018

A beautiful sunburnt and occasionally stormy site. Part of a current project of ours, this section of land will be rehabilitated to reconnect national park (right ) with an ancient existing wetland (left ). An enlightened client, not-for-profit organisations and architect working together to return farmland back to the natural habitat and nature corridor it once was. A joy to be apart of.

When we're not designing buildings, there are still very important decisions to be made: how to fit 5 current favourites into a 3 board bag...
