Project Ivanhoe extension

2018-07-12T09:52:36+00:00 July 12th, 2018|Architecture, Design, Modscape, Projects|

Tucked neatly behind a weatherboard house in Melbourne’s leafy north-east sits a two-storey modular extension that is bold yet refined and has transformed the way the clients live. In need of extra space for their growing family the clients decided to employ a modular solution and extend their home rather than move. The extension is open, filled with natural light and beautifully compliments its leafy suburban location. A new double-height entrance space has been created in the middle of the [...]

Upcoming Project

The client’s current home in Sydney’s Northshore is rundown and badly oriented, filled with pokey awkward spaces that do not meet the needs of their large family. Working with the existing pool, the new modular home utilises the landscaping but is more complimentary and better suited to the block. With a whopping six bedrooms and six bathrooms, the design’s focus is about efficient and flexible living spaces. A large three meter cantilever is a striking focal point from the street [...]

Project Franklinford

Sitting peacefully in an open field, this off-the-grid sustainable house captures the views without compromising on environmental performance. Located at Franklinford in Victoria’s Central Highlands, the four-bedroom modular home is shared between two families, providing a gathering place for the extended family and a place to relax and relish the joys of rural life.

Newmarket Randwick Display Suite

From premier thoroughbreds to designer residences – the historic Newmarket stables site in Randwick, Sydney is currently being developed by CBUS Property. The display suite for the CBUS Property development was designed by Neeson Murcutt Architects and Bates Smart. It is a showpiece for the first stage of development and reflects the design of the future apartments – open, generous and elegant.  […]

Project Portsea

2017-09-05T17:45:40+00:00 September 5th, 2017|Architecture, Design, Modscape, Projects|

In the coastal suburb of Portsea, Victoria stands this striking modular home which looks as impressive today as it did when it was installed over five years ago. Part of our design philosophy is to create contemporary spaces that not only look beautiful and are functional, but also possess a long lifespan and continue to adapt and grow with their surrounding environments. The Portsea home is a great illustration of this – the coastal beauty continues to age gracefully over [...]

Modular Construction Brought to Life Through a Creative Lens

The detailed modular construction process can be a difficult one to grasp, yet the many advantages are worth understanding for anyone looking to design and build a new home. To aid this understanding we recently engaged Melbourne cinematographer, Nathan Kaso, to produce a short tilt-shift time-lapse film on the process. But rather than just spelling out our process, Nathan sought to capture the distinctiveness of a modular project through a unique combination of filming techniques and styles.  […]

Project Phillip Island

2017-07-21T15:36:15+00:00 July 16th, 2017|Architecture, Modscape, Projects|

Set on a windswept hillside overlooking Bass Strait sits a modular home that allows the epic coastal location to be experienced in all its many states. The project evolved from a pragmatic response to the challenges of occupying an exposed coastal site. Winds, often extreme, shaped the design with the house acting as a barrier and protecting the external courtyard tucked in behind. Important to the design was the organisation of internal and external living spaces to ensure they provide [...]

Miniature Modular Homes

2017-06-23T14:21:59+00:00 June 23rd, 2017|Modscape, Projects|

We’ve found 3D printed models to be a powerful tool to communicate and develop design ideas with our clients. The models stimulate conversation and debate, which facilitates the design development process. Crucial lessons can be learnt through the testing of ideas in a miniature format. On occasions when floorplans and technical drawings can be difficult to understand, a 3D model makes the design more tangible. In turn, the increased level of client understanding allows for design changes to be incorporated [...]
