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

S’WICH Bondi

2022

Food + Beverage

We approached the brief for a new sandwich bar as a dynamic study in colour and shape through time. Blending brick construction with duotone interiors and custom sculptural furnishings, our design interplays raw and refined elements to present as a casual diner for the future. Bands of brand colour wrap the store, metal blades split prismatic panels and galvanised plates suspend crystalline blocks to create an artful environment that places focus on the produce and product on offer

Riley Rooftop

2022

Commercial

An elevated deck atop a converted interwar workshop, Riley Rooftop uses its expansive 250m2 plate to fold out furnishings and screens to form intimate spaces against the skyline. To the centre, a galvanised column pavilion projects the workshop’s exposed structure and provides shade through a canopy of coated sections threaded through and suspended by perforated plates. To the east and west of the deck, ‘UFO’ planters are wrapped with precast slices that float off aluminium blades at different heights to create a round seat and bar. To offset this palette, the spaces are saturated with landscaping, softening and colouring built elements to deliver a private inner-city oasis

Nobbs

Residential (in council)

Alts and adds to a ten-terrace row in Surry Hills. We love so many of the proposed moves to the original residences which seek to retain features and improve access to light and air – but we’re most excited about the proposed laneway dwellings. We have designed these from a sensitive, sustainable and robust palette of earth and aluminium, perforated and panelled against the masonry to offset its solidity with inset glazing that pivots on both axes. With parapets that raise to conceal beds to spill foliage, these dwellings are designed to provide character to a dilapidated laneway, articulating a new elevation that gestures to the adjacent parkland

Lang Road

2021

Residential

Works to a modernist residence c. 1960 stemming from a playful study of shapes and their interaction with light. We were fortunate to deliver designs of the interiors alongside custom furnishings and assist in the procurement of landscaping and artwork to deliver a special suite of spaces. Notably, for the master we designed a canopy of acrylic sections to slot through perforated panels that fold from the roofline to create a sculptural ceiling run. An expanse of walnut forms the basis of the walk-in robes with panel splits defined by blades that triangulate on corners – serving as supports and shelving.  Our favourite – the conversation pit – is created by a low-slung timber box topped with chamfered cushions that wrap and sink beneath

Palmer Street

2021

Residential


A structure lofted above a textile showroom, Palmer Street is equal parts home, gallery and studio. Inside, the space moves between moments of sparsity and saturation, of rigour and looseness, to provide respite and allure. Playful fixtures fall from ceilings, angular sideboards sit to bladed balustrades, low slung furnishings stretch across rooms and vibrant forms adorn walls to deliver a time-capsuled love letter to design⁣

Hill

2021

Commercial

A heavily partitioned concrete shell transformed into a light-filled open office plate, our design for Hill neatly integrates a kitchenette with a pair of boardroom and breakout spaces, visually connected via cylindrical linear lighting runs
