For the May edition of the it’s design blog, we have decided to delve deeper into Chris Bosse’s Tivoli Terrace. The director of the architecture firm LAVA recently won the SMEG Tour Competition for this project, and we are so pleased that we could be a part of it!

The Paddington townhouse features a combination of classic joinery and modern manufacturing techniques allowing it to achieve a ‘21st century reinterpretation of a 1880’s terrace house’. Each room has floor to ceiling in-built cabinets which add generous amounts of hidden storage space to the property. With custom-made white laminated solid plywood kitchen and pale French oak timber floors, the use of only neutral colour tones creates a warm and serene environment.

‘Somehow when you are in here, it doesn’t feel small at all” – Chris Bosse

From handcrafted joinery solutions in the kitchen and laundry to wardrobes and bookshelf cabinets in the bedrooms and living rooms respectively, Bosse’s signature style of organic structures is present throughout his home. A combination of great architectural inspiration from Bosse with sustainable design has enabled a simplistic and modern way of creating space with the limited room of compact inner-city living.

We are so pleased to have not one but two of our projects featured in the Harper’s Bazaar Working Spaces Series. 

Last year we showed you our work at MAXMEDIA LAB, this time its Sarah & Sebastian and their recently opened, first retail store.

The Working Spaces Series showcases Australian companies and individuals that are aesthetically pleasing, and add well-being and productivity in the office environment. We believe that our cabinet work at Sarah & Sebastian reflects these values of simple and ageless designs to create a pleasant and tranquil atmosphere allowing the collections to be shown in the best way possible.

If these photos aren’t convincing enough head over to Alexandria to check it out in person. Trust me, it won’t disappoint!

 

Thanks Harper’s Bazaar for featuring some of our work with U+I Building Studio on the newly refurbished MAXMEDIA LAB office in Alexandria.

This series showcases Australian companies and individuals that are aesthetically pleasing, and add well-being and productivity in the office environment.

Our work with MAXMEDIA LAB emits this idea of a sleek modern workplace with simplistic and timeless designs that create a calm and soothing working environment. With more hours being spent in the office it is becoming increasingly important to have a positive work environment.

Thanks MAXMEDIA LAB for the opportunity, it was an absolute pleasure! Check out Harper’s Bazaar’s article for some #officeinspo 

 

 

A BIG congratulations to our friend and collaborator Mark Smith of Smith Projects Pty Ltd for WINNING the Private School Construction Category at Master Builders Association of NSW Construction Awards Gala Dinner on Saturday night!

Working with you on the Kincoppal Rose Bay Project was an absolute pleasure! The end result looks exceptional!

This project is just one part of the refurbishment masterplan of Kincoppal which includes revamp on several of the heritage listed buildings. The area was upgraded to suit the current educational spaces and technology including pinboards, lockers, utilities storage, bench seats, tables and a kitchenette.

With the project being completed within 12 weeks, it was truly a well deserved win, If you don’t believe us, check out the photos for yourself!

So when our friends from Own World asked us last year to do the fit out for their Darlinghurst showroom we had nooooooo idea just how good the end result would look. And yes, as part of a great team, we proudly pat our own shoulders.

The timber wall panels, the over-size chair display and office cabinets, it all came together nicely once their good looking products featured in them. We think it’s become one fancy showroom! Have a look for yourself.

The oak panels appear to ‘float’ in the room.

The ravine natural oak panel is a special feature during the day when light floats through the big glass front of the show room.

The choice of timber works even featuring almost see-through objects.

The showroom at night. The lighting makes the timber look warm and welcoming.

The Own World office. The timber wall behind the large display unit separates the office from the showroom.

The charcoal free standing cabinet works as a room divider as well as an unobstrusive storage space.
