Interior concept for this two-level penthouse residence addition, hovering above an Edwardian building, draws upon Friedrich Schinkel’s early definitions of ‘House’ and the riddled stories of King Solomon and Queen Sheba. Layout features a fluid organisation of rooms, integrated private courtyards and exquisite detailing, with natural materials used throughout.

The Beach House sits gently in the landscape of a wild, coastal site. Imagined as a place to dream, it expresses the clients’ desire to establish an intersection between lived human experience and the natural world. A perfect example of what could be W.A. lifestyle and design!

Set within coastal vegetation, on an elevated site on the Mornington Peninsula, this beautiful Holiday House presents a low slung, non-descript street presence. Eschewing trends towards ever increasing house size, the home embraces the notion of the family weekender as a quiet place where interaction, intimacy and exploration are celebrated.

Three Parts House is divided into 3 parts Lantern, Courtyard and Brickhouse. It’s an alteration and addition to a 1950’s clinker brick residence. It is a playful project with sensitive approach to materiality and colour, of which scale and articulation are used to achieve programmatic subtlety and clarity.

The Beach Residence is a luxury two-unit renovation with captivating views over Bondi Beach. One unit is occupied as a full-time residence, and the other as a holiday retreat. For this purpose each unit was treated with different yet complimentary finishes inspired by context and reflecting their differing uses.

The practice has transformed a small 1970’s bluestone home into one with light filled, open plan interiors with better flow and balance. A simple palette of stone and timber was used to compliment and lay credibility to the honest raw quality of the existing bluestone walls.

This modest project engages the architectural and personal history of the site to create a new experience. A suburban bungalow is hollowed out to respond to light, views and aspect and create new iteration of the suburban bungalow.

Hunters Hill House is the creation of a new family home that celebrates the qualities of the site with a palette of richly textured materials and reference to our clients’ Italian and Sri-Lankan heritage. These materials have been combined with considered detailing to provide clarity of space and form.

The aim was to create a home which is a gentle, relaxed atmosphere – a background to a busy but considered family life by the sea. A warm but serene haven set in a beautiful expansive protected northern garden with the spectacular cliffs of Bass Strait forming the backdrop.

Designed for an artist (Giles Alexander), an environmental scientist (Anna Bruce) and their busy young family, House Bruce Alexander explores the poetic potential of the rawest pragmatism. This is a thoughtful, sustainable and lyric renovation of a tiny inner city terrace.
