Focal Point – Canada

Perched on a mountain in the Eastern Townships, Canada, the Crowhill cabin is based on its timelessness and minimalism concept. By its angular shape, the project aims to underline the beauty of the surrounding landscape. The project takes advantage of the rocky cape to anchor its raw concrete foundations, on which rest two pavilions advancing towards the treetops. Designed by Nature Humaine, the...

a compact addition – Melbourne

Tetris Extension in Melbourne's inner north-west is a compact addition completed in early this year. The clients, a young couple with two small children, had outgrown their neat Californian bungalow and needed more room to move. Crosshatch was engaged to create a sympathetic yet efficient rear extension to meet the family’s needs, while still retaining the much-loved character of the original two-bedroom...

Pure harmony

Located on the west of Mexico, SJA III in San Juan de Alima, is carved into the rocky hillside to create a home and a remarkable pool with views of the Pacific Ocean. Designed by Casas De Mexico, the home has been designed to work with the natural landscape instead of against it. With this idyllic scenario, imposing the house upon the...

the inner world of dreams

Gabriel Isak uses photography as a metaphor for experiences of the soul by creating haunting, thought provoking photographs that are simple in form, but rich in ideas and emotions. His imagery entails surreal and melancholic scenes inspired by the inner world of dreams and psychology, where he invites the viewer to interact with the internal world of solitary figures that symbolize our own unconscious states....

Loft living – Austria

Set over 350 square meters and two storeys, the classic idea of a “loft” is noticeable, yet has been reinterpreted. A special focus lies on the exhaustion of materials and of what is technologically possible. Architecture...

Dallas 1980’s revival

Studio OFFICAL’s aesthetically astute clients bought a 1980’s townhouse located in Dallas, Texas, designed modernist architect Bud Oglesby with the intention of renovating it for themselves and their growing art collection while staying true to the original design.  The project had a sophisticated section so OFFICAL’s goal was to modernise the spaces in both use and technology while also rectifying...

Red Hill Farm – Victoria

The brief was the creation of a home celebrating the surrounding architectural buildings of Red Hill Victoria, but with a modern, contemporary interpretation. A structure with rural character but with an appropriateness to function embedded deep in its design. A close connection between the house, pool, courtyard and the rural landscape is ever prevalent as horses and cattle wander unexpectedly into close view peering inquisitively...

Not So Suburban – Melbourne

In a heritage precinct defined by its stylistic diversity, Ola Studio aimed to present a confident contemporary architecture to the neighbourhood that both referenced and conversed with its local context. The immediate neighbours are both white painted timber single storey period bungalows, one is double fronted with a dominant gable, the other is single fronted with a hip roof. Ola...
