Grant House - Contrasting the old & the new: 
White colorbond cladding was selected to maximise solar reflectance, drastically reducing demands on mechanical cooling. The material is robust and low maintenance  Over time the house is designed to require minimal maintenance, minimal servicing and minimal adaption.

Brickface 2017

Blue blue electric blue: To separate the private studio space from the garage below and the roof terrace above, the room has been painted blue throughout - walls, ceilings and skirtings. The cohesive use of colour unifies the room and draws a domestic scale to the studio: using colour to provide contrast and signify a change in function. 
The studio design and specifically the colour, provide a contrast to the surrounding gritty laneway and industrial brick facade. The owners wanted a space that would be calm and playful despite its 'seedy laneway’ location.

Tattoo House 2006

Dappled light streaming through the 'tattoo' - the tree super-graphic, composed of images taken in a local park, creates playful and ever-changing shadows across the interior spaces of the house. The stickers became a multi-purpose solution to the dual requirements of council overlooking regulations and glare reduction.Legislation which dictates a 75% opacity to second-storey windows was resolved with UV stable stickers rather than expensive and elaborate screening.

King Bill  2018 
The distinguishing and unifying feature of King Bill is the corrugated colorbond steel metal cladding. Surfmist Custom Orb is used to define each of the additions - the stable building, the glass pavilion, and the bedroom pop out. The use of a singular material highlights the additions, particularly in the old stable building where the clean white steel contrasts with the original old brick. The advantage of the profile is that it can be rolled to create sweeping curves and sun shading eyelids. The versatility of using the linear ribs vertically or horizontal - allows the material to be used practically in different applications, to shade and guide rain water (the stable and pop out), or to create the curve of a building (the pavilion.)

Mills House 2016

Winner - National Architecture Awards, House alteration & addition 2016 for Mills House
Winner - The John and Phyllis Murphy Award, Victorian Architecture Awards 2016 for Mills House
Winner - Interior architecture Award, Victorian Architecture Awards 2016 for Mills House

Perforated metal - Let the light in

We’ve used perforated metal throughout Mills. Stairs are tricky, especially in tight spaces. We tried to create a stair that feels light as lace. Perforated steel sheet is folded allowing light to be shared while also enabling conversations from one level to the other, without requiring you to be in the same space. One can lounge by a sunny upstairs window while having a conversation with someone below. Although it is a small home with numerous spaces we’ve avoided creating isolated cells by using translucent materials like perforated metal.  Designed by @austinmaynardarchitects

Grant House 
Upstairs the parents retreat is  light-filled and open, with a bedroom at one side, a lounging area with mezzanine reading platform at the other and a bathroom ‘box’ at the centre. Divisional walls stop short of the ceiling to create volume and height which celebrate the curve of the ceiling. The open layout is dedicated parent space, not enclosed and therefore used for relaxation rather than a place to store/hide stuff.

More than just play, the unusual and joyous balcony arrangements of @austinmaynardarchitects Nightingale ParkLife building serve an important purpose. By alternating the direction of the sweep of each balcony, every north facing apartment gets a double height opening into their living room! This will allow more light to enter and offer an even better view of the new park directly bordering the building. Ace!🌞

regramming @nightingale.housing While research clearly shows us the multitude of benefits to individuals and collectives, intergenerational living is not generally regarded as a very sexy topic by the architectural media. Austin Maynard Architects are one firm exploring the typology with integrity and enthusiasm, as evidenced in their Charles House project, pictured here (📸 by @peterbbennetts). We already have some family communities in existing and in-progress Nightingale projects. With older generations looking to downsize, and young families wanting to remain close to work and school without the burden of a huge mortgage, it makes sense to look to be in the same building. ⠀

Grant House

In rethinking the functionality of the house and how it is used, garden space has been protected and expanded. Reduction of the original footprint created more natural light, more garden and easier access At Grant House we created a visual and spacial separation between the old and the new with a courtyard. Having that separation brings light and air into the back of the old house and into the new addition.

The chainlink provides an opportunity for vegetation to take hold which  over time create a cooler micro climate.

Its happening tonight! The grand finale of (this leg) of the Nightingale Village journey. The final information session for the last building in a stellar line up!  Austin Maynard Architects will be presenting ParkLife, we can’t wait to share it with you. 
ParkLife will feature multiple teilhaus, one bedroom and two bedroom apartments of varying configurations.
.
ParkLife will have a big beautiful park directly on its northern boundary, and the homes at ParkLife take full advantage of the park, and all of the benefit that a protected northern aspect has to offer. ParkLife also has a community laneway running through it, allowing Villagers from neighbouring Nightingale homes to pass from the Village through to the park. After all its about community, right?
.
ParkLife’s southern aspect is where the action is. Ground floor commercial space creates a vibrant pedestrian street. Above are big homes with huge decks. There is also a rooftop amphitheatre with views towards the city.

Come along to tonights information session in Fitzroy (link in bio) to find out the finer details of ParkLife as well as how the Nightingale model works in practice.
