We recently revisited a project in Five Dock to take some professional photos. The angular form of the rear extension and the light scoop roof allows for the light to stream into the residence throughout the day.
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 treat each project as a process of discovery with the aim to provide our clients with a comfortable place that forfill its function needs yet be a source of inspiration for everyday living.
Tennyson Point Residence – Work in Progress by studioJLA ( Architect )
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.

Our project at Henley is recently been completed. The proposal aims to provide its owners with an alfresco area for all seasons. The Alfresco space is enclosed by a series of bi-stacking sliding doors with a polished concrete floor.
