Woollahra Courtyard House by @coaparchitects ⁠⠀ Woollahra, NSW⁠⠀ -⁠⠀⠀⁠⠀ From the Architect: Internally, materials are figured, natural and robust. Strong horizontal planes of board-form concrete and terrazzo unify the living spaces. Australian hardwoods are used for joinery and bedroom floors. A variety of figured stones, naturally lit by skylights, are featured in bathrooms throughout the house. A sculptural painted steel staircase travels through all levels of the new home.⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ www.co-ap.com⁠⠀ #coaparchitects ⁠⠀ #publishedwithbowerbird ⁠⠀ -⁣⠀⁠⠀⠀⁠⠀ Photographer: Ross Honeysett⁠⠀ Builder: Wellworth Construction⁠⠀ Engineer: Partridge Engineers⁠⠀ -⁣⠀⁠⠀⠀⁠⠀ #australianarchitecture #architecture #australiandesign #design #house #housedesign #moderndesign #interiors #houseporn #architectureporn #inspo #interiorsinspo #archdaily #dezeen #houseinspo #househunter #architecturehunter #houseoftheday #archiporn #sydney #sydneydesign #sydneyarchitecture #sydneyhouse #woollahra #coap #concrete #concretedesign #concretehouse

Woollahra Courtyard House by @coaparchitects ⁠⠀ Woollahra, NSW⁠⠀ -⁠⠀⠀⁠⠀ From the Architect: A series of skylights and clerestory windows puncture the concrete roof, allowing daylight deep into living spaces and internal rooms. The geometry of these punctures follows the form of the upper storey, of which the parallelogram plan aims at retaining the amenity of the two adjacent properties.⁠⠀ Vertical articulation of windows responds to the rhythm of fenestration along the established residential street and the use of masonry, concrete and metal cladding clearly define the architectural elements of the new building.⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ www.co-ap.com⁠⠀ #coaparchitects ⁠⠀ #publishedwithbowerbird ⁠⠀ -⁣⠀⁠⠀⠀⁠⠀ Photographer: Ross Honeysett⁠⠀ Builder: Wellworth Construction⁠⠀ Engineer: Partridge Engineers⁠⠀ -⁣⠀⁠⠀⠀⁠⠀ #australianarchitecture #architecture #australiandesign #design #house #housedesign #moderndesign #interiors #houseporn #architectureporn #inspo #interiorsinspo #archdaily #dezeen #houseinspo #househunter #architecturehunter #houseoftheday #archiporn #sydney #sydneydesign #sydneyarchitecture #sydneyhouse #woollahra #coap #stairdesign #stair #staircase

Woollahra Courtyard House by @coaparchitects ⁠⠀ Woollahra, NSW⁠⠀ -⁠⠀⠀⁠⠀ From the Architect: A new four bedroom home has been designed for an empty nester couple and three generations of extended family visitors. Built on the site of a 1970s single storey courtyard house, the former dwelling was designed with a gabled roof in keeping with a neighbouring weatherboard cottage which presently no longer exists. Taking cues from its predecessor the new house, designed for disabled access, is planned around a courtyard and responds to its current neighbouring context of two storey dwellings.⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ www.co-ap.com⁠⠀ #coaparchitects ⁠⠀ #publishedwithbowerbird ⁠⠀ -⁣⠀⁠⠀⠀⁠⠀ Photographer: Ross Honeysett⁠⠀ Builder: Wellworth Construction⁠⠀ Engineer: Partridge Engineers⁠⠀ -⁣⠀⁠⠀⠀⁠⠀ #australianarchitecture #architecture #australiandesign #design #house #housedesign #moderndesign #interiors #houseporn #architectureporn #inspo #interiorsinspo #archdaily #dezeen #houseinspo #househunter #architecturehunter #houseoftheday #archiporn #sydney #sydneydesign #sydneyarchitecture #sydneyhouse #woollahra #coap #courtyard #courtyardhouse

We were honoured and proud to have our Portman Street Terraces project included in the Government Architect NSW Design Guide for Heritage . Excerpt from the publication: “Once the site of a chocolate factory, the new Portman Street Terraces by CO-AP (Architects) respond to increased residential demand and proximity to Green Square town centre. Taking its formal cues from the Victorian terrace typology of its neighbours, a recessed street frontage with small Juliet balconies continues the rhythm of facade articulation along the street. The raw material palette of concrete and steel references former warehouse buildings prevalent in Zetland. In the hands of a skilled designer, a completely new infill development conjures a sense of familiarity within its context.” . #governmentarchitectnsw #heritage #architecture #australianarchitecture #zetland #greensquare #portmanstreetterraces #coaparchitects

A daunting day today aided by friendship, flowers, carpentry, a little chocolate and some quietude. Our ‘Manniversary’ it says in my calendar. At the turn of the century, Dane Crawford caught a train from Brisbane to Sydney to “stay at mine for a bit” but in actuality for Dane and me to become ‘life partners’, a status I am finding he retains posthumously via the reservoir of love he left in store. We were introduced by Lucy Wirth in the January, igniting our summer fling on a bed made of milk crates. I’m dining with Lucy tonight. (We were doing Troy’s House at the Old Fitz back then). Dane’s train journey was nineteen years ago today. I recall the progress reports he phoned into the call centre where I worked. I didn’t own a mobile yet. He arrived at interval of the show with his luggage. Did we have an inkling it would sustain so long? We never suspected it’d be cut tragically short. We also approach that other anniversary this week: twelve months since our Dane was wrenched away. Today I visited the building site for the house he helped create for us, empty of wall linings and fixtures still; somehow replete with him. (Tonight Lucy revealed that even in the beer terrace of the Old Fitz Dane spoke about saving for a home deposit with me. She kept it quiet in case I baulked at the commitment of this impatient nineteen year old.) Dane kept that train ticket. I believe it is in storage with all our stuff, packed by us both in the weeks before his death, a treasure trove of tools for living I get to open before long. Those of you who volunteered to be a removalist crew, you are on notice. Our builder, the excellent Guy Surch, is progressing fast with the reconstruction work. As are you, my friends, so thanks. #surchbuilders #coaparchitects #nortonstreethouse #danecrawford

Moreton Manor by @coaparchitects ⁣⠀⁣⠀ Bondi, NSW⁣⠀⁣⠀ -⁣⠀⁣⠀ From the Architect: The house retains its original joinery while its ornate fireplaces, grand staircase, architraves and decorative cornices have been restored. New stone and timber floors extend into the landscaped gardens incorporating the significant Moreton Bay Figs on the site. Contemporary materials contrast and complement the historic palette of hardwoods, painted masonry and cast iron lace work, forming a grand, aesthetically unified home. New installations such as the cabinetry and carved marble ensuite island are inserted into the original building with minimal intervention for the ability for them to be taken away without detriment to the original building fabric. The new additions sit in conversation with the Victorian mansion and the original older cottage - like a child with its parent and grandparent.⁣⠀ -⁣⠀ www.co-ap.com⁣⠀⁣⠀ #coaparchitects ⁣⠀⁣⠀ #publishedwithbowerbird ⁣⠀⁣⠀ -⁣⠀⁣⠀ Photographer: Ross Honeysett⁣⠀⁣⠀ Builder: A J Bristow & Sons⁣⠀⁣⠀ Heritage Architect: Design 5 - Architects⁣⠀⁣⠀ -⁣⠀⁣⠀ #australianarchitecture #architecture #australiandesign #design #house #housedesign #moderndesign #interiors #houseporn #architectureporn #inspo #interiorsinspo #archdaily #dezeen #houseinspo #houseoftheday #archiporn #renovation #heritage #heritagearchitecture #heritagehouse #heritagebuilding #bondi #bondibeach #bondihouse #concrete #oldandnew #concretehouse

Moreton Manor by @coaparchitects ⁣⠀ Bondi, NSW⁣⠀ -⁣⠀ From the Architect: Its current modern transformation enriches the property’s grand Victorian Italianate style with respect and simplicity. The works include the reinstatement of verandas and four room layout to the original cottage and the restoration of the Victorian mansion. The addition of a new double-height pavilion allows sunlight and breezes to filter into new north facing living spaces. Transformation of the original sandstone stables structure into a poolside pavilion provides connection to the garden. Adapting the original house to modern living enables the continued preservation of the heritage property, whilst concurrently achieving cultural and environmental sustainability. ⁣⠀ -⁣⠀ www.co-ap.com⁣⠀ #coaparchitects ⁣⠀ #publishedwithbowerbird ⁣⠀ -⁣⠀ Photographer: Ross Honeysett⁣⠀ Builder: A J Bristow & Sons⁣⠀ Heritage Architect: Design 5 - Architects⁣⠀ -⁣⠀ #australianarchitecture #architecture #australiandesign #design #house #housedesign #moderndesign #interiors #houseporn #architectureporn #inspo #interiorsinspo #archdaily #dezeen #houseinspo #houseoftheday #archiporn #renovation #heritage #heritagearchitecture #heritagehouse #heritagebuilding #bondi #bondibeach #bondihouse #concrete #oldandnew #concretehouse

Moreton Manor by @coaparchitects ⁣⠀ Bondi, NSW⁣⠀ -⁣⠀ From the Architect: Constructed in the early 1880s incorporating an earlier 1858 cottage structure, ‘Scarba‘ was one of the substantial houses that were constructed in Bondi. Since 1917 the site was used by The Benevolent Society, and later for welfare uses and residential care for the elderly up until the sale of the site to our developer client. ⁣⠀ After 90 years as an institutional establishment there was the opportunity to return the building back into a family home. Moreton Manor and its garden is now the focus of the 'The Moreton' residential development.⁣⠀ -⁣⠀ www.co-ap.com⁣⠀ #coaparchitects ⁣⠀ #publishedwithbowerbird ⁣⠀ -⁣⠀ Photographer: Ross Honeysett⁣⠀ Builder: A J Bristow & Sons⁣⠀ Heritage Architect: Design 5 - Architects⁣⠀ -⁣⠀ #australianarchitecture #architecture #australiandesign #design #house #housedesign #moderndesign #interiors #houseporn #architectureporn #inspo #interiorsinspo #archdaily #dezeen #houseinspo #houseoftheday #archiporn #renovation #heritage #heritagearchitecture #heritagehouse #heritagebuilding #bondi #bondibeach #bondihouse #concrete #oldandnew #concretehouse
