Established Apartments

Fremantle locals, Harris Architects, worked closely with Yolk Property Group to take what was previously a carpark and develop it into a block of 19 apartments in a mix of studio, 1 bedroom, and 2 bedroom configurations.

Working with a strong focus on local context, they ensured the site responded to the vibrancy of the Fremantle community as well as climactic conditions and the rich character of the original site and its surrounds.

The result is a building leaving us all wishing we could move in- click here for more

03 Clarke Shack

“A shack that meets our budget using inexpensive and smart building techniques and finishes.”

Mishack used their intelligent, modular design-style  to create this Dunsborough shack for a savvy graphic design couple and their budding surfer daughter.

This design studio far exceeded the brief that called for a semi-industrial, quirky, yet open and natural feel, this design studio far exceeded the task- the result being a weekend getaway anyone would be jealous of.

POST Architecture

“We only want to do good work with good people, so we try not to be typology-specific. We just look at who you are, what you are about, what are you trying to do with your life, with the world?

And if we align in our philosophies, then that’s a great opportunity to make good architecture, good projects.”
– interview Collective Hub Magazine, 2016

Shutter House

Standing out for both its incredible design and as the flagship project for the newly established State of Kin, Shutter House seamlessly amalgamates a minimalist interior with an interactive mechanical façade referencing contemporary Japanese architecture.
Subtle details such as parquet and terrazzo flooring, circular skylights and exposed concrete ceilings coalesce to create this stunning residential form.

Brunswick Californian

“Sitting at the end of, and in some ways in between two eras, we decided that restraint was called for in selecting new materials and finishes. We opted for simple geometric shapes and classic patterns to complement, and not compete, with the existing art deco features and the previous renovation. At the same time, details like custom-plated brass knobs were added to make the house feel just a bit more special, and imbue it with a stronger sense of place.”

Take a step inside this Melbourne bungalow with us and explore the ways in which architect Jos Tan was challenged to reconfigure the spaces within the existing structure fo the home while negotiating forms and finishes from three eras.

House_B

“Highly efficient without compromising spatial quality, House_B is planned around a central courtyard to ensure a garden connection and light throughout – and a sense of space and depth despite the long narrow lot.”
Located in Dalkeith, this project by the talented Sandy Anghie was built adjacent to House A and responds directly to its environment, while also taking into consideration sustainability measures to provide viable energy resource options for the future.
 
The design was focused around showcasing a sensitive introduction to higher density living in one of Perth’s older suburbs while simultaneously remaining respectful to its context by taking cues from the mid-century homes that characterise Dalkeith.
