London Woolstore Apartments

by admin· November 01, 2017· in · 0 comments
          About 2006 AIA Queensland Architecture Awards Multi-Residential AwardThe architectural approach focused on the AML&F Woolstore building as an enduring structure that would offer a unique experience for housing. The historic materiality evident in the oversized timbers and exposed brickwork emphasise the passing of time endured by the structure. The design seeks to capture this quality for all inhabitants and visitors to the building. The major design intervention is the creation of a 3-storey central breezeway spine that links the building both vertically & horizontally through a series of void and landscaped walkway spaces.  The existing roof sheeting is removed, exposing the structure and a new floating fibreglass roof hovers over the void. The new roof protects the interior from sun and rain whilst allowing the breezeway to naturally ventilate. Separation of units across the breezeway enables openable windows onto the space and thus natural ventilation & increased natural light into the units. The overall mechanical services load upon the building is drastically reduced. The individual unit plans have been simplified into grouped typologies on each level. A two storey loft/townhouse variation enabled maximum character of the Woolstore space to be experienced in many of the […]

    About 2009 AIA Queensland Architecture Awards Queensland Residential Houses Award, Gold Coast AwardLonghut is a pure beach house in the tradition of simple, fun, fibro clad pavillions built on shoe string budgets.  The simplicity is in the elegant plan and extruded cross sectional form.  The fun is in the arrangement of the pavillion forms and their engagement of the exterior landscape and wider environment.  The site is a narrow east / west block with rear lane access in the beachside Fingal village.  Suspended above the ground, the plan is driven by the notion of informality and resolved as a collection of coastal pavillion structures hung off a covered deck spine.  The clients have named the home “Longhut” in reference to the linear spine of decking overhung with translucent fibreglass which is literally an exterior corridor linking various internal rooms. The procession from the beach initiates at an external washdown shower and the transitional deck entry for the comfortable and casual removal of sand and beach paraphernalia prior to entering the internal areas.  The exterior covered deck spine controls both the pedestrian circulation and facilitates the air circulation throughout the pavillions.  Occupants are constantly moving to the exterior corridor […]

Quad

About 2008 AIA Queensland Architecture Awards Brisbane Regional Commendation QUAD represents the first trial of a new type of light industry, small lot development.  Essentially conceived as a commercial townhouse module for small business use, the design evolved out of a desire to reduce the dominance of parking and vehicle manoeuvring on the ground level of the small site. The design creates a new typology for urban infill in light industry area.  The focus on small business reduced the ‘grain’ of the building mass and offers a livelier streetscape.  People business triumphs over vehicle business.  The tenancy arrangement suits a wide variety of users, hence the flexibility sought by small operators in industrial zones is catered for.  The other benefit is in terms of workplace culture whereby the focus on useable open space was given importance.  Third level covered roof terraces would not normally survive the financial rigours of commercial property development.  The desire for these types of spaces for workers in the modern workplace is catered for and the successful uptake of leases on the tenancies proves the model.  Four small tenancies make up the 3 storey development.  It was agreed that single vehicle access was appropriate to the […]
