Jeremy and Bec wanted a small 3 bedroom home on a very small (and steep) block in the inner Brisbane suburb of Red Hill. They were looking for a ‘suburban shed’, something simple but with great engineering to underpin the design. They were looking for a place to call home.

Project details
Our design concept was to build a ‘jewellery box’ – a tough exterior belying a delightful soft interior. A key feature of the Winship Shed is its external façade with the striking dark metal cladding contrasting with the lighter interior. The very geometric and simple form was designed to ensure the house would not be too imposing or dominant over the street and to create a sense of mystery as to what lies within. Like a jewellery box, there is joy in entering the house and discovering the spaces and details within.

Project Leader Linton Godden’s favourite part of this Brisbane home was the simplicity of the project. As he says “it’s this simplicity that helps to make the small elements of delight ‘pop’”. The home is private and protected from the street giving Jeremy and Bec their “Brisbane home”.

Sustainability
Winship Shed is well orientated to the north – north-east maximising natural light and ventilation and reducing the need for artificial lighting, heating and cooling. A roof ventilation system was adopted that allow for hot air to escape from the high ceiling space of the living area. As a small project it was designed for “only what is needed”, ensuring no excess or surplus space to be serviced.

Point Reyes Residence by Butler Armsden Architects

The Point Reyes Residence was constructed with the vistas in mind and every single room is oriented toward looking across the water and at the world outside.

The space of the apartment is not limited within the physical layout, the city surrounding the building becomes part of it and the added facade glazing only maintains the comfort of the indoor climate, connecting the city into an extended peripheral perception.

The Desert Palisades residence is located in the last hillside enclave of Palm Springs, newly open for development and slotted for architecturally significant homes.

A Desired Home / Liang Architecture Studio

Home is not merely a house or container of trivial things in daily life, but more a place that accommodates emotions and love. It's like an intimate medium, which witnesses the interweaving of daily life and growth, records stories occur in the space, and conveys the occupant's personality and attitude.

Vancouver Loft Apartment / Falken Reynolds Interiors

Splitting time between New York and Vancouver, the owners of a 1,100-square-foot loft in the latter city’s Crosstown neighborhood needed room to work from home, and as ardent sports fans they also wanted space to host large game-day gatherings.
