I acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woiwurrung and Bunurong/Boon Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nation, upon whose ancestral lands I practice. I pay respect to the Elders both past, present and emerging as the traditional custodians of this land, and its knowledge.

Old House

This project – a renovation and extension to a heritage cottage in South Melbourne – is typical. It works with the common inner-suburban constrants of a tight lot and council rules to provide simple, contemporary amenity as the last residence for an aging Grandma. Dimensions have been generally reduced to accomodate her while maintaining it as a financial assest for the next generation.

It seems that things appear to be harder to reach as you age – you shrink when you grow older.

Due for Completion in 2024.

Regional Bureaucracy

Regional Bureaucracy – anecdotally, analytically and always critically – presents a selection of relevant regional works that reveal an architectural mode that is distinctly ‘good enough’.

Every regional city and town has basic amenities of some description. A post office, a school, a town hall, a police station, and sometimes, a swimming pool. Across the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW), the majority of these buildings were designed by the NSW Government Architect’s Office (GAO), most prolifically over a period of thirty years from 1958 to 1988. These civic structures – equally recognisable and indistinguishable in their form and wider sensibilities – create an oeuvre of public architecture that is both statewide and specifically local.

It’s Hot Outside

We spent the week watching the Sun. With an average annual value of 350 w/m2, the Sun is one of the reasons that we’re able to live on Earth. From this starting point, we questioned, how can the solar device become architecture?

Maybe revisiting our relationship with the Sun – like the cat who follows the heat when it is cold, and the shadow when it is warm – could provide some answers. We started with the roof as the first exchange between fire and rain. A blurry border between protection and invitation – a perimeter, but not a boundary. A home only defined by the objects covered by the roof, if only for a few seasons.

At the very least, it is nice to be outside.

Sydney is Missing a Public Square

Along Oxford Street, intersected by Flinders Street and Darlinghurst Road, is Taylor Square. But in many ways it is a square in name only. It is more often thought of as an intersection or something to cross.

To open the public ground plane means to remove some of its boundaries. In the centre of the star-shaped square, a carpet is positioned to tie together the urban room. While the carpet is open,  it also frames – and is framed – by the pockets of its surrounds. It is a visible void for protests; a platform to spectate mardi gras from; and a speakers’ corner. A place to see, and be seen – a place to be heard.

Gallery Extension

The National Gallery of Australia is an immediate reference. It is an icon, by nature. It is a transient structure composed by a metaphysical architect. There are many interpretations, readings and experiences in the galleries, yet the building is anchored through a few simple ideas – structure and journey.

The proposed extension – a gallery to house temporary exhibitions – reinterprets and recomposes these principles, albeit with a few moments that clearly distinguish itself. The temporary gallery is a volume of 30m x 25m x 20m, with a horizontal colonnade, a big facade, a long ramp and an inverted concrete dish. All existing orders and services defined by the original scheme are more and less maintained, with only a single wall required to be demolished.
