  • 2016

    Late 2015 saw the completion of projects in Strathfield and Burwood – middle ring housing sites with transitional urban conditions.

    We begin 2016 with works on Campbell Section5 reaching a conclusion and works on Constitution Avenue continuing. Builders have been appointed for the Sydney University Boatshed We have a number of Development Applications on small, challenging inner urban sites in various Councils, and we are working on a range of family houses, due to begin construction in the next few months.

    We hope to progress works on an adaptive reuse project in the beautiful Beynon and Hayward building Petersham, and see the commencement of the Parramatta Escarpment Boardwalk towards the latter part of this year.

  • Studios 54 wins National Multiple Housing Award

    We are pleased to announce that Studios 54 has won a national award for Multiple Housing from the Australian Institute of Architects. The jury citation says -

    ‘The framed element that signifies the lift core and the thickened wall of services has its internal panel tiled with glazed ceramic tiles. We could be in Naples, not Sydney. But this is the point. Studios 54 is a project that announces the larger and necessary project of consolidating the Australian city.’

    We thank the jury for their generous citation, and our clients and all of the consultants, subcontractors and tradespeople who have been involved in the project.
