Having lived in the home for five years with an exposed rooftop deck, the owners knew the reality of summer and winter outdoors in Bendigo and had a clear vision of what the outdoor room should look like and what it needed to achieve. The scope of works was to maintain light, warmth and a sense of space and openness but to also provide privacy and protection from the sun. Both striking and tested architectural features mark this extension. The sandstone flooring and pressed metal wall have a warm and inviting presence with a modern appearance.
This Victorian-style home comprises a central hallway with three bedrooms and a lounge. The lean-to on the back of the existing house included the kitchen, meals, laundry, bathroom and WC. The deteriorated parts of the house were either replaced or fixed, and the lean-to on the rear of the house was demolished and a large 120 square-metre extension added including a new master bedroom with ensuite and walk-in robe, kitchen with walk-in pantry, dining, living area and laundry. Features from the original home were utilised into the extension linking the two, while other features from the Victorian era such as a decorative plaster arch, Victorian cornice, classic-style joinery, fretwork and timber handrails and balustrading were added.

The floor plan incorporates three living areas, four bedrooms, study and extensive storage space.

This 6 star home ticks all the boxes in regards to sustainability, creating an ambiance that is warm and inviting.
While this house achieves a six-star energy rating, it is not a true reflection of the exceptional quality and energy-efficiency of this home. The exterior construction is predominantly reverse brick veneer, which is beneficial because the thermal mass is on the inside where the temperature is controlled. All of the framing and majority of the cladding are all sustainably sourced timbers; even the verandah posts are recycled from an old road bridge. The house was designed facing true north and there are large windows that reduce the overall green star rating, however thoughtful planning and veranda shading offset this. The house also features a wood- and solar-fired hot water system, a septic treatment plant, an underground rainwater tank and a grid-connect solar pv system.
The Bridge Hotel is a heritage-listed building in the Port of Echuca. This building was in need of significant works to bring it up to standard and compliance with DDA requirements without losing its character and charm. On inspection, it was discovered that many structural items were beyond repair so all deteriorated materials were replaced with new materials in keeping with the original style and vintage. Interior and exterior works were carried out, including a new slate roof, replacement of deteriorating timbers, verandas, balustrades and staircase, timber flooring, paving and pathways, electrical and plumbing fixtures, upgrades of amenities and the construction of additional amenities. This building has been fully restored and has regained its original beauty for the public to enjoy for many years to come.
Providing a space that is able to promote the strong relationship to the bush within Aboriginal culture was considered an important factor in the co-operative’s philosophy of providing a holistic approach to the health of their clients. Bendigo District Aboriginal Cooperative’s (BDAC’s) objective was to construct a number of new stand-alone high quality buildings, with modern, high standards in a facility that integrates into their natural landscape. The facilities consisted of three standalone buildings that included a new administration block, a new health and wellbeing facility, and family and children services facility. The buildings were designed to be sympathetic to their environment, and to resemble a leaf on the ground.
The scope of works called for the construction of a mixed-use development combining retail, commercial and high-end apartments. The structure utilises a combination of precast panels, structural steel, brickwork, light-weight framing and cladding. Arranged over three floors and basement; the ground floor comprises car parking and three retail spaces, with open plan commercial spaces situated on the first floor. The high-end apartments are arranged over level two and level three, all complemented by outside timber decks.
