Australian practice Stephen Collier Architects have converted two old boatsheds built in the 19th century into a mix of commercial and residential units and a 3 storey residential apartment. The architecture has won the 2012 Sydney Design Award for Residential Architecture. From the architects, “The Lavender Bay Boatshed consists of two 3 storey boatsheds that abut one another at the north-western edge of the bay. Built in the 19th century, they are the last remaining timber structures from the era in this part of Sydney Harbour. Pain-stakingly restored since 2008, they have been converted into a mix of commercial and residential units in the northern building and a 3 storey residential apartment in the southern building. The main apartment extends from the lower ground floor (where the harbour extends into the main bedroom under a glazed floor) to a height of three storeys. It is entered mid-level on the landward side via a steep and winding path. From here the large timber lined living room (evoking memories of being a small child under an upturned boat) opens out towards the city skyline. The existing timber structure, pulled and stretched out of shape over time, has been left visible. Large skylights [...]

Garden and patio areas are the best place to spend some quality time with your family and friends. A good outdoor furniture set transforms your patio into a outdoor living room. To make the most of your patio, choose the outdoor furniture that suits your needs. Here are few tips to choose the right furniture for your garden and patio area. 1. Choose furniture according to your patio – If it is open, go for weatherproof furniture and if its half-closed or completely covered, you can choose the outdoor patio furniture sets made of wicker or wood. 2. Choosing right material is very important – Weatherproof furniture are normally made of aluminum, PVC and steel or wrought iron with weatherproofed or painted periodically. For closed patio spaces, you can go for rattan or outdoor wicker patio furniture. 3. Umbrella or Sunshade – During hot sunny day, it becomes uncomfortable and even impossible to sit outside. An umbrella will take care of the sun. Go for a light colored umbrella that will not fade or discolor in the course of time. 4. Go for modular furniture – You can use the patio area for different purposes, so you will need different [...]

The project responds to the surrounding landscape defined by two different topographies: one horizontal plane oriolana garden, where it supports the building, and on the other the ubiquitous mountain in the north facing the delimitation. The volume of the building reflects this duality fragmenting the different volumes that comprise this mechanism to recognize the profile of the mountains to the opening. The building consists of two...
