Base Architecture - 'She Oak' House by the Sea in Casuarina Beach, Kingscliff, NSW, Australia
Thursday, 07 October 2010 04:53

She-Oak-04Aptly named by its Architect as the "beach shack", this 3875.01 ft2 black box sits within the Casuarina estate on a beach front lot.

The original brief was to develop a house that was informal, casual, comfortable and welcoming and importantly have a space for the client’s quiver of long boards. Surrounded by an eclectic array of houses it became apparent early in the design stage the importance of the surrounds, the environment and the conditions that the house would be subjected to such as wind, salt and sun.

The use of galvanised steel and stained ecoply promotes rawness to the skin that will age gracefully rather than deteriorate like most paint type finishes, whilst on the inside the material palette is refined yet hard wearing in the form of polished concrete.


From the initial sighting of the house the viewer can make a casual journey to the double height entry with grass underfoot and natural landscape.

Zero Carbon Residencial Development
Tuesday, 05 October 2010 10:56

Greenwatt_wayA new zero carbon developments has just been unveiled in the UK.

Greenwatt Way, designed by PRP Architects, the development uses the latest construction methods and technologies available to deliver zero carbon housing to Level 6 of the Code for Sustainable Homes. The project will be monitored for the next two years to improve understanding of energy usage and requirements as the UK moves to reduce carbon emissions by 80% by 2050.

The development of ten homes comprises two and three bedroom houses, one bedroom flats, an information hub and an energy centre. The homes each have a private patio around a shared garden with space to grow vegetables and will be rented out to SSE and Slough Borough staff, along with local residents.

The research project, in which SSE is investing over £3.5m, is testing a wide range of solutions and will provide much needed evidence of the real life benefits of living in zero carbon homes. Zero carbon homes are now becoming much more affordable; Bramall Construction is already building Code 6, zero carbon homes for less than £130,000.

Mahlum - Thurston Elementary School, Springfield, Oregon
Tuesday, 28 September 2010 06:31


Mahlum-Thurston-09The school’s gentle, sloping silhouette reflects directly how the building communicates with the surrounding McKenzie River valley’s tree-lined hills to the south and north of the project site. Sheets of exposed, tilt-up concrete create a structural rhythm that expresses the scale of these hills and grounds the building to its site.

The community and student population approach from the west while the cost offers access to outdoor learning. On these sides, the pedestrian scale is reinforced by lap siding.
