At the start of each project, we seek to gain an imitate understanding of our clients needs. We believe our designs is a response to each clients needs and way of life. We take a ‘clean slate’ approach and trust in our design process, experience and knowledge to create spaces for contemporary living.
Our first step in our process is to gather as much information we can from site specific information, planning instruments effecting the site to images and ideas from our clients. We believe each site tells a different story and our objective is to bring our knowledge and experience to create beautiful yet functional spaces.
Our process of hand sketching and 3d modelling are essential part of the schematic design phase to allow us to test various ideas within the complexity of various constraints. The freedom of the sketch and the detail analysis of the 3d model provides a foundation to providing a good design outcome while at the same time acting as an effective communication tool to our clients.
We find the time of the formation of the intial design idea can vary from project to project which essentially is due to our perseverance to challenge ourselves to find the best design outcome.
We believe a good design outcome requires a ‘good set of tools’, therefore we equip ourselves with good people passionate in their respective fields to achieve our vision.
We think each project is a process of discovery with the aim to provide our clients with a home that forfill its functional needs yet be a source of inspiration for everyday living.
Tennyson Point Residence – Work in Progress by studioJLA ( Architect )
Our resort style residence in Concord has recently been DA approved by Canada Bay Council. The concept involves carrying a pool as a central element of the house. To provide poolside living yet act as water feature and a reflection pond. The pavilion style residence allows for good light to all rooms while protect the amenities of its neighbours.
Our project located along Tennyson Point Rd has been DA approved by Ryde Council. The design centres around a ‘resort style living concept and features a cantilevered pool with an angular concrete frame structure. The pool acts a centre piece to the home and cooling feature to the adjoining living spaces.
Located along a tree lined street in Roseville and within a series of Californian bungalows and period homes. We have been given the task to design a home for a growing family to reflect their love of the outdoors and love for tennis.
With each and every home, they represent their own unique set of challenges and this residence was no exception. The challenge for this project was to make the additional accommodation for a growing family yet provide good solar access with its poor orientation. While considering the bulk and scale of any addition to be in keeping with its context.
Our solution involved positioning the private spaces to the northern side of the residence to create a void extending the full length of the living space below. This allowed for light to filter throughout the residence and yet create a dramatic space.
The proposed renovations also include a glass pavilion close to the tennis court to allow friends and family to enjoy watching tennis or a place for perfect for kids celebrations.
