  • New projects on our website

    We’ve recently uploaded some information on two exciting projects that we currently have under construction. The dramatic urban form of the Arc Apartments is starting to appear in its scaffolded shroud along the sweep of Old South Head Road. The earthwork and platform work of the Centennial Park Bicycle Hub are also underway, with a lighter weight steel structure to follow shortly.

  • Recent projects

    We’re very honoured to have been involved in the Master Planning of the Narara Ecovillage with a group of fantastic people who are working hard to make a beautiful and sustainable new community on the grounds of the old Gosford Horticultural Institute.

    The Lennox Bridge Portals involves the adaptive reuse of a State Listed Heritage item that crosses the Parramatta River and its increasingly active foreshore. The project has been on site for 18 months and is due for completion in May 2015.

  • Yeerongpilly Green

    Hill Thalis + Clare Design have won the Yeerongpilly Green project in Brisbane with Consolidated Properties. Clare Design + Hill Thalis worked together to master plan a contemporary and diversified built environment, with a confident architectural character based on urban condition, amenity and environmental performance. Our intention is to create an appropriate urban scale through a diverse range of solutions – in type, scale, form and material that are unified by a consistent response to the site and its sub tropical context. The announcement has been covered in the Australian Financial Review, The Age, and the Courier Mail

  • Master Builders Association Awards

    Congratulations to Stephen Edwards Constructions who recently won the Excellence in Construction Award for Public Buildings between $5m – $10m, from the NSW Master Builder’s Association for the Lemur Forest Adventure at Taronga Zoo.

  • Constitution Avenue, ACT

    Our works with Jane Irwin Landscape Architecture on Constitution Avenue are progressing with the completion of the northern verge at Campbell, Section 5. The works include the laying of finely cut blue-stone kerb, variegated pavement and advanced oaks.

  • Tiny… and not so tiny towers underway

    Studios 54 are due for completion in December, while the Burwood apartments have also just commenced on site.

    Meanwhile, we are getting moving on cycling and rowing projects – with the Centennial Park South West Bicycle Hub and Sydney University Boatshed projects commencing documentation.

    Stay tuned for more details in coming months.
