Rosedale House – Construction update

We love it when our clients can start to see the spaces taking shape in a project. Tom, Julia and Juno visited the Rosedale house just as the floor and wall cassettes have been completed.

Another shout-out to Meyer Timber, Wadsworth and Bruce from Ambidextrous Projects for their collaboration on this project so far. All cassettes were delivered and installed in less than three days!


Wilson Park Pavilion – Complete

Our Wilson Park Pavilion has been completed! A huge thank you to our client SOPA and the builder AJ Bristow and Sons.

This project is an adaptive re-use of an existing brick amenities building on a highly contaminated site. Our scaffolding structure wraps around the periphery of the existing building, touching the site as lightly as possible. It both redefines the expression of the building as well as creating a new in-between space to be used as a community gallery.


Assisting in Disaster Relief Recovery

Australian Institute of Architects, facilitated by Gemma Savio, has published an article by Matt Chan title “Building Resilience and Assisting in Disaster Recovery”.

See link to the article here.

Site visit – Spring Beach

A beautiful new bush site located on the land of the paredarerme people at at Spring Beach on the East Coast of Tasmania.

In collaboration with our clients, we are looking to design a small cabin with the ambition to minimise our impact on this amazing landscape. Stay tuned!


Sandy Bay House – Construction Update

Our Sandy Bay House has commenced on site. The existing cottage will remain with minimal intervention, just enough to bring in more northern light and to connect to the rear addition.


Gerroa – Timber pre-fabrication

Our Gerroa house is a case study for implementing pre-fabricated timber cassette systems into our construction methodology for remote and/or difficult sites.

Working closely with Meyer Timber and Wadsworth, we painstakingly co-ordinated and documented each panel to allow for a quick and easy install. Total time on site was only 4 days to crane and install all the floor, wall and roof cassettes.

Huge thanks to the guys from Arc Projects for helping with the install.


Gerroa House – Steel installation

The many months of design and redesign in the office, in the pursuit of a perfectly coordinated design-fabrication model, has paid off immensely. After only 2 days of craning, every component of steel has fit together with millimetre precision.

A huge thank you to J Borelli fabrications and SDA Structures as well as advice (and counselling) from Brad, Arc Projects and Bruce, Ambidextrous Projects.


Sandy Bay House – DA approved

We are thrilled that our Sandy Bay house has been approved! A rear extension to an existing 1920s cottage that provides a much needed amenity upgrade for our client’s forever home as well as space for kids + grandkids to stay.


Rosedale House – DA approved

We are super excited to have our Rosedale House approved! As our first project in a bushfire affected community, we have designed a compact, cost-effective house which will utilise a partial pre-fabricated methodology. Stay tuned!


Rosedale House – Bushfire re-build

We are at the end of the concept design phase for our upcoming project in the fire affected community of Rosedale on the NSW South Coast. We have been working closely with our clients to provide an economic yet beautiful new home nestled in the treetops of the site.


Gerroa House – on site

First day on site for our Gerroa House with a 25 tonne machine to drill the concrete piers on the steep site (at some points over 40 degrees).
