EAST CENTRAL in Surry Hills is a development of elegant architecturally designed apartment in the fashionable suburb of Surry Hills. Designed by Brenchley Architects, a bold yet stylish eight level residential building has been created to complement the streetscape in a bustling area with Cafes.
Sophisticated, yet relaxed internally... Urban, edgy vibrant externally, East Central uses the void spaces and materials to give a feeling of light and air, creating a cal
Theres a lot to be said for sheds, they are a sort of Freudian idyl, a place where work goes on, a rereat, a place to store and stash things that can remain hidden for years, like the Sydney Olympic Rings which sold recently on Ebay. There are mini castles, hobbit houses and 50s Diners, gothic turretted sheds, and of course the wonderful movement of The Mens Shed Association in Australia. However, when an Architect needs a shed, inevitably the vision is far from a Victo
This Project has been a longtime coming, and as each peice fell into place we did a little happy dance. Very shortly we will be able to shout about this little project in Annandale but for the moment, we can share with you the amazing artisan copper basins, the cheeky little windows that bathe the space in light and the beautiful stairs that lead you to the heavens, which incidentally you can see for just about any part of this gorgeous property, and we have said it b

After a hunt for accessories that were made from raw copper to our specs for a client we have transversed the world, and come up with some stunnung sinks, designed inhouse, and the whole office is excited about seeing these, but we are super excited that the hardware for the cabinets was a little closer to home, infact only a suburb away! We journeyed the world to find what we needed close to home..... The wonderful Louis Berczi, who made the great stools a
In a week that saw the roof come off The Block Glasshouse, and let the light in, we are onto another project, where we are excavating a multistorey reno with robot dinosaurs....... well, Ok, mini remote control excavators. Amazing that in this confined space, the job can be done remotely and quickly....... looking forward to seeing the results! The magic of these machines is the stuff of boyhood imaginings, and brings magic to the buildings we work on, its in
Recently the Vitra Slide Tower by Carsten Höller has been inaugurated, adding a new structure to the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein. With its prominent clock at the top, it is not a building in the classical sense but a viewing tower with a slide – and a work of art that enables a new and unique experience of self and art. The 30.7-metre-high Vitra Slide Tower by the German artist provides a new accent on the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein. We are loving this addition, and wor
If she's going to abuse The Block architect, Dee could at least check the car cam isn't recording. After losing the Blockhead jury to Michael and Carlene, Dee decided to vent to husband Darren in the car on the way back to The Block. But unbeknownst to Dee, Darren had turned the car cam on and when she found out she wasn't happy about it. Check out the video above to see what Dee said. #architectsmelbourne #brenchleyarchitects #glasshouse #modernarchitecture #residentialmidri
With a new project underway I had this week the opportunity to meet Honsen, a feng shui Master, a great privelege.
Initially I was very sceptical, I thought I knew enough about Feng Shui door and window locations, orientation and site planning, however, real Feng Shui is not as simplistic as what the books say and the internent is full if generalist rubbish.
Feng shui largely relates to the energy of the resident, the birth year, (I struggle with that concept) and the po
