Adela Apartments

The project came about with the development of a large residential block close to the Elwood foreshore and Port Philip Bay. The brief simply requested a spacious apartment product that was cutting edge and contemporary, but subtle both inside and out. The concept of a large apartment resulted in six single level dwellings, each with the proportions of a small house. The apartments are low maintenance, functionally adaptable to appeal to a range of potential residents, and highly sustainable. Externally, rather than go for a standard “stacked wedding cake” form, the building was set back significantly from the adjoining properties on the lower levels. This allowed the main volume of the building to have vertical sides and reduce... More

Arch-Texture

It is not a coincidence that the word ‘Arch’ is found in both ‘Arch-itecture’ and ‘Arch-aic’.1 In recent times there has been a resurgence in the use of the ‘Arch’ in architectural forms throughout the world.  Why? Most likely as the result of a generational ebb and flow in our cultural relationship to our collective history; a youthful break with our past replaced with a mature revaluation. Modernism emerged from the conformist historicism of the Victorian era and sought to euthanise that past architectural narrative, and so few arches were visible in its rigid Euclidian geometry.  However, following the excesses of the Second World War a melancholic reappearance of a veiled neocla...

Bellevue Hill Residence

The custom designed cabana in Sydney’s harbourside eastern suburbs is the ultimate entertaining space in this newly renovated home by Poco Designs. Opening up to the pool side and enabling the two spaces to merge together, the cabana utilises a monochromatic palette internally and externally.

Austin Design Dutch Gable House

The Dutch Gable House is a sophisticated renovation, seamlessly merging the architectural features of the historic home with contemporary design. The unique characteristics of the facade influenced the design concept and resulted in a dramatic and bold interior transformation. The Dutch Gable House Project features multiple Articolo products including the Float Capped Pendant, Lumi Table Lamp and Lumi Pendant.  Lumi is timeless in its refined elegance and simplicity of form, its distinctive design characterized by one mouthblown glass vessel cocooned in the other. Together, the vessels express feminine fluidity of form while celebrating the subtle striations found in organic mouthblown glass. Float is a collection of refined lightin... More

Product • By EMU Group S.p.A.Round Collection

Round Collection

Round Collection, designed by Christophe Pillet, focuses on rounded lines to give extremely comfortable seats and armchairs, whereas both the square and low tables are distinguished by their clean, elemental shapes. According to Pillet: “there is something which cannot often be easily found in outdoor furnishings and this is what I have tried to express in this collection: a simple, timeless quality with a touch of detached elegance”. The Round chair projects aim to enhance the materials used with the innovative, deep-draw technique, in which the sheet metal is compressed between two steel dies to create three-dimensional shapes.  They are distinctive, innovative items, yet not cumbersome. Although originally designed for c... More

Annandale House

The project consists of alterations and additions to an existing inner-city two-storey Victorian terrace house built on an exceptionally long and narrow site (ratio 1:8.5). The client's brief was to design a new fourbedroom residence by refurbishing the original two-storey terrace and demolishing a shamble of fibro and corrugated metal clad lean-tos, and an enormous metal shed which was formerly used as Christmas decorations factory. The site is closely bounded by residential units to the south-west and the Piano Factory warehouse apartment conversion to the north. The west and east offer framed views to established trees and green streetscape respectively.   Taking these issues into consideration, the new additions attach to the rea... More
