King George House / Robeson Architects

August 11, 2019 Andreas Luco 0

This Grade-A State heritage listed workers cottage on the corner of George and King Streets, East Fremantle, provided an exciting base to create a modern family home.  The concept was to respect and highlight the existing cottage by distancing the bulk of the extension to the ROW, linking the two with an internal courtyard.  With a mixed-use zoning, the home is designed with a self-contained office and bedroom which can be leased in future should the owner decide to do so.  The highly polished introduced finishes of “Nero Marquina” marble, white oxide concrete flooring and glossed black timber lend a dramatic contrast to the raw and matte finishes of the cottage. An intentional contrast that references the original materials with an opposing finish.  The owners intend to use the nearby parks and cafes as extensions of their home, hence gardens are minimal and low maintenance.

At all times of the day, the Royal Opera House building should be a place to glimpse the remarkable forces at play behind the scenes; a place to relax and have a coffee, lunch or a drink in the midst of the one of the world’s most beautiful opera houses; a place to see artists at work; and a place to showcase its guiding principles of excellence, theatricality and curiosity.

Lantern House / Pitch Achitecture + Developments

The Lantern House extension is a project to re-energise the rear of a double storey Victorian house located in Melbourne’s quiet inner city suburbia. The extension replaced the original oversized alfresco with a traditional roofline design with an inviting and high functioning indoor and outdoor space that blends seamlessly into the main house and garden. The kitchen area was extended to create a new indoor dining space complete with a gas fireplace, which in turn flows into a reimagined outdoor lounge and kitchen area with a built-in BBQ, perfect for entertaining.

This building was conceived as a flagship construction for a multinational dedicated to the production and distribution of fruits and vegetables. The commission was developed in two phases, with the first being an extension to an existing edifice, and the second the reform and refurbishment of the company’s current facilities, finally being united in one single office complex.

Speelhuis Theatre / Frits van Dongen Architecten en Planners + Koschuch Architects

July 16, 2019 Daniel Tapia 0

When the old Speelhuis Theatre from structuralist architect Piet Blom (1977) burned down, the theatre found refuge in a mostly vacant Catholic church. In this period the church turned out to be a perfect backdrop for a whole range of activities and performances. It was then decided that the theatre should stay in the church permanently with some necessary extensions and improvements.
