Residential Projects

From humble beginnings, Bowral’s unique dry-pressed bricks and pavers have become the first choice for architects, builders, developers, landscapers and discerning home buyers.
As Australian cities continue to densify, real estate prices remain elevated, and empty-nesters downsize, the market for multi-residential developments is both flourishing, and evolving. Moving out from the central business districts where they were once concentrated, developments are offering more than just location and economy; today, shared amenities, environmental credentials and a sense of community are just as high on residents’ priority lists.
The aesthetic flavour steeped into heritage structures is hard to match in new builds – which is why so many residents brave the added cost, time and stress that renovating these involves. When achieved, however, the prize of pairing historic personality with present day function is worth almost any challenge.
The view of Wilsons Promontory National Park from the winding ridgeline near the small town of Fish Creek is arrestingly beautiful. At this southern-most point of the Australian mainland, interlocked shoulders of rolling hills are clad in thickets, paddocks, and dams, while coastline, islands, ocean and taller peaks make for a dramatic backdrop. Throw in some turbulent seasonal weather and you have a dynamic panorama, year-round.

Landscape Projects

The Balfour Street Park project created a small-scale neighbourhood park within a diverse commercial and residential enclave in Chippendale, providing a breakout space for workers and residents. Balfour Park uses a rich weave of brick, stone and concrete. Brick is used as a decorative medium in a series of colours and patterns, inspired by the adjacent brewery buildings, workers terraces and old factory buildings that form the park’s historic backdrop. Concrete elements complement the textured brick surfaces, echoing the modern insertions throughout the neighbourhood and bringing a contemporary feel to the park.

Jacaranda Square is part of the redevelopment of Sydney Olympic Park from a large-scale event space to an everyday role which includes plans for a residential and working population of 30,000.
