Albert St is occupied

The garden has taken off with late summer warmth and water tank irrigation. A lush paradise designed by Eckersley's, complementing our alterations and additions built with suitable awesomeness by Glyde Constructions.





HYBC at the Institute awards


As presented at the Architecture awards a fortnight or so ago...


Identity, apertures and an empty box
Additions and alterations to Hobsons Bay Yacht Club
Our approach extended the use of yellow brick, albeit with subtle changes in pattern, and sought to build on the existing identity of the Hobsons Bay Yacht Club. We opened the site to the street which allows passers-by to see into and through the building. The club’s social life and working dry docks are presented to the public gaze, activating the streetscape and drawing locals over the fence.
HBYC is one of a handful of clubs where members can work on their own vessels. As such it was important that this project was not a gesamt kunstwork. The building is a robust container that can be continued without further consultation and without erosion or undermining of the architecture.
And the building has a PERISCOPE.

Gordon St at Handover







Happy snaps of Gordon St.
Handed over by Willsher Builders today.
Excellent workmanship on a project with more geometry than is normal for us.
Thought of as an elephant under a white blanket.

New Residence at Franklinford - Preliminary Works Dec 2015

 

The works consist of construction of a black machinery shed and a 200m long road with CFA compliant access via a teardrop driveway adjacent to the house site.
Extensive topographical analysis informed siting of the road which winds around the hill and unfolds views across to Mount Franklin and down to Jim Crow Creek.
The house will follow shortly and has a pavilion plan and a robust material palette including rammed earth, raw cement sheet and unpainted pressed metal cladding.

Acknowledgements for work to date:
Graham Jennings of Jennings Earthmoving Services, Castlemaine for precision road building and site cut
Central Steelbuild, Kyneton for machinery shed construction
Jonah Epstein for photography
Simon Ellis Landscape Architecture for design collaboration, topographic and drainage analysis.

Affleck Street Albury




























 

Affleck Street is well occupied, and very livable if not entirely finished.
A 2 storey addition with V columns and steel windows to an existing Spanish Mission house with an exceptional view over Albury.
Another finely crafted project from Sheringham Constructions who are establishing themselves in the Albury / Yackandandah area, after many years of being our go to Melbourne builder.
