  • 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

  • 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.

    Stay tuned for more details in coming months.

View to Town Hall’s tower and QVB’s dome, from probably the best modern colonnade in Sydney on the George St frontage of the Sydney County Council (SCC) Building. Won in open competition in 1959-60 by James Kell and Diana Parrott, young architects working with @fowellmansfieldjarvismaclurcan. Finely proportioned and detailed colonnade, great height relationship to street #publicsydney #georgestreet #cityofsydney #architecturalcompetition #sydneyarchitecturalcompetition #colonnade #moderncolonnades #sccbuilding #jameskell #marblepaving #sydneytownhall #qvbsydney #townhallstation #colonnadesection

For the record, green headland at Millers Point in our 2006 International Competition for Barangaroo (confusingly called East Darling Harbour at the time). Team @hillthalisaup with @janeirwin_landscape @paulberkemeierarchitect. Bigger green headland, public facilities open to the Harbour as part of 11ha of public park creating the entire foreshore as continuous inalienable public space, linked and defined by public streets #publicsydney #barangaroocompetitionwinningscheme #eastdarlingharbour #eastdarlingharbour competitionwinningscheme#millerspoint #greenheadland #publicwaterfront #publicland #publicspace #publicstreet #architecturalmodel #heritage #creativeadaptation #sydneydesign #designofsydney #inalienablepublicspace
