Needling the crane through the existing slabs in our inner city office extensions. Bottom 2/3 floors existing, top 2/3 floors the addition. Crane cut into hollow floor planks, which will be removed to form a light well. Different paint colours on each floor of the old interiors. #alts&adds #alterationsandadditions #alterationsandadditionstoexistingoffices #creativeadaptation #buildingsremember #buildingsite #crane #constructionsite #building #insideoutside #paintcolours #lightwell #void #urbanarchitecture

Peak hour bus-scape, Clarence St. Not sure this is the most efficient form of public transport in the city. Why we need more heavy rail, metro, light rail & all forms of active transport. The idea surely is to pick the right mode for the right task, on the best route #clarencestreet #buses #trafficjam #transport #transportmode #publictransport #transportation #street #busscape #streetscape #peakhour @cityofsydney

Great to have some serious naval architecture in the middle of the city! Powerful scale, detail, material palette, super graphics and silhouette #gardenisland #woolloomooloobay #australiannavy #ship #navalbase #silhouette #supergraphics #lifeboat #greyongrey @cityofsydney

Series double height screened balconies; #balanaminglane facade of our Majestic Theatre conversion. The new screens, which give sun and privacy protection, follow the pattern of the original plaster screens that naturally ventilated the theatre. @hillthalisaup team @guckmal @brett_sperling #wesgrunsell #janinekoll with @ariszafirellis & @growthbuilt Photo; @brettboardmanphotography #themajestic #petersham #creativeadaptation #theatreconversion #heritageadaptation #brickwork #commonbrick #bricks #balconies #sunscreens #screens #facade #architecturaldesign #sydneyarchitecture #architecture

Such a beautiful streetscape created by @cityofsydney’s Bourke st cycleway, soon to be continuous from Woolloomooloo almost to the airport. Always best when infrastructure tied to urban amenity, public space & safety improvements #cycleway #bourkestreetsydney #darlinghurst #urbandesign #streetdesign #publicdomain #urbanlandscape #civicdesign #sydneycycleways #streetsection #trafficcalming #publicproject #publicsydney

Super steep Sydney streets; Edgar Street west of Chatswood. Some of the city’s most memorable streets dramatically reveal the topography, but a tough climb. Seems more steep due to concrete roadway? #sydney #sydneystreets #steepstreets #steepsydneystreets #street types #streetsection #sectionstreeps #topography #urbantopography #bigdipperstreets #publicspace #publicsydney
