Inside/outside & the design of balconies; complex arrangement at our Rose Bay apartments, open to 2 sides but protected by various solid elements determined by structure view & privacy, glazed corner to living room to capture NE light, deeper dimension to NW to protect from heat.

Lord Mayor @CloverMoore presenting the #sydneypeaceprize to Professor #josephstiglitz at Sydney Town Hall for his life work exposing inequality, the need for climate action, the imperative to reform our politics. “The only sustainable prosperity is shared prosperity,” concluding; “We don’t need the distopia of a divided society. The challenge today is not in our economics but in our politics.” #publicdiscourse #publicinterest #publiclife #equality #fairness #againstinequality #sustainability #principle #publicsydney @cityofsydney #australiainstitute #oxfam #universityofsydney

We are very pleased that our major urban project for the Canterbury Road corridor for #canterburybankstown won a #planninginstituteofaustralia award last week. So important to rescue these road corridors from being relegated to traffic sewers loaded up with low grade indiscriminate development. Project proposed redistributing some density north away from the road, with new public parks, lanes & streets, noise-barrier buildings, greening the road & much more @ourcbcity #canterburyroadcorridor #canterburyroad #urbanproject #noisebarrierplanning #publicimprovement #publicproject #publicbenefit #trafficcalming #urbanregeneration #publicsydney @hillthalisaup team; @benjidriver @waterloverswim @gracie.grew with #sgs & #ghd

Flanking new brick-based building with arcades between Clarence & Kent streets in Sydney, with tower setback. Excellent lofty T-shaped lane/ arcade creates smaller brick pods at street level, with larger footprint tower above. Work of #koichitakada, with other new building by #architectus (see previous post), consolidates brick streetwall on either side of heritage listed Hoffnung & Co building. Brickwork arches very imageable but perhaps too insubstantial? Nonetheless great #urbanarchitecture & additions to @cityofsydney #streetwall #brickwork #brickfacade #brickarches #streetpresence #streetfacade #streetscale #arcade #lane #throughsitelink #streetvista #clarencestreet #kentstreet #hoffnung&co #sydneyarchitecture

Brace of new brick-faced office towers with good arcades linking Clarence & Kent Sts, this by #architectus. Arcade extends line of Barrack Street opposite, & scale of brickwork matches heritage Hoffnung & Co adjacent, tower rises behind #urbanarchitecture @cityofsydney @architectus #brickfacade #brickwork #streetpresence #streetwall #streetscale #arcade #throughsitelink #streetvista #clarencestreet #kentstreet #barrackstreet #hoffnung&co #sydneyarchitecture
