Buon Gusto

Buon Gusto is a collection of new purpose-built artist studios designed to fit within the walls of a classic Italian pizzeria. Colour, texture and tone is derived from the original restaurant’s interior and era to forge a connection between its past and present use

Riddell

Residential (in documentation)

We wanted to create a family home that borrows warmth from its owners and their existing c.1900 cottage by proposing a timber volume above that’s both conversational and deferential. By opening the front room whilst maintaining its original gable, we have allowed this element to shine and serve as a key visual anchor for the elevation and elements beyond. To the south, a double height setback provides façade articulation and cover, whilst also allowing an original timber arch to be exposed and serve as the entry

Old South

2023

Residential (in documentation)

Known by many as being adjacent to the famed childhood hang Plaster Master, we had a bit of fun injecting warmth and quirk into this new four-bedroom home. Functional habitable rooms are flanked by new private outdoor spaces that capitalise on site width and maximise available sunlight. From the outside, folded red zinc and articulated openings that reference existing details form the heart of our proposal

Alts + adds to a ten-terrace row in Surry Hills. We love so many of the proposed moves to the original residences that retain heritage features whilst improving amenity – but we’re most excited about the new rear elevation inclusive of a sculptural podium that slides under and in-between four new laneway dwellings. We have designed these around existing landscaping to provide character to an overlooked laneway and articulate a new face to the adjacent parkland

Residential

Alterations to a face brick apartment circa 1970. Removing plaster walls and cutting away timber floors revealed original tessellated kitchen tiling, on show here through inset joinery composed of thick acrylic, machined + polished to all faces⁣

Canopy

2022

Structure

Something special. Reverse angle posts float a perforated canopy with cylinders that project through fascias. Laser cut components slot together, with mechanical fixings that elevate and shadow profiles of steel and aluminium
