Model House in Melbourne by Breathe Architecture is a very personal residential architecture project, designed for a theatrical set designer and his wife.
Christopher Rimmer is a Melbourne-based fine art photographer who’s forthcoming exhibition, Sign of Life, is a visual examination of the tragedy of two abandoned towns slowly being buried by the sands. The images were shot on location in the diamond mining towns of Elizabeth Bay and Kolmanskop in South Western Namibia. Local institutions such as the hospital, ballroom, power station, theatre, casino, ice factory and the first x-ray-station in the Western Hemisphere are all shown in a surreal and almost unrecognisable state.
Scanlan Theodore’s newest stores – in Sydney’s Paddington and The Strand Arcade, and Melbourne’s Armadale – have been designed by Sydney based practice, Meacham Nockles McQualter. Like the iconic Australian fashion label, the architects approached these retail fit-outs with the same commitment to simple, modern classic design, centring around beautiful materials and attentive craftsmanship.
This Deliciously Curvalicious West Melbourne loft apartment by Adrian Amore is a knockout – that staircase, the articulation of light, the sinuous forms and fluid spaces… Everything about this project literally brought us to our knees. Emphasised by a monochrome white on white palette, the twisting, bending walls take centre-stage. Initially a much more square and conventional space, the interior took on a dynamic tone when the steel truss that cut through the space was removed. With much more room to play with, Mr Amore embraced the opportunity to create something more curvy and flexible.
Edwards Moore is a Melbourne-based architecture & design studio founded by Ben Edwards and Juliet Moore. Avid followers of this blog will be familiar with these crazy kids, as we’ve featured their projects a number of times before. Their work is serious, playful, energetic and provocative in equal measure. Driven by a belief in the art of architecture, Edwards Moore take each project as an opportunity to explore new ideas and possibilities. There’s no preconceived plan or formula to their work, other than a plan to be ultra curious and get stuck in no matter what challenges might come along.
Lightbox by Edwards Moore is a small single storey terrace, featuring a perforated upper floor and translucent roof that filter light through the house.
