The project for Hawthorn East Residence involved the restoration and modification of a two-story Italianate-style villa. The renovation of this heritage home honors the historical significance of the frontage, while the contemporary three-story addition and a series of social spaces internalize the view, providing privacy and reinforcing the landscape. This project is designed around two main elements in the client’s brief.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Peter BennettsThe first being a flowless interior transition from restored house to the addition at the rear, whilst the second is a series of flexible spaces opened to landscaped areas. Along with the heritage frontage and a contemporary three-story addition, the rear garden houses act as a collection of spaces linked through access and aesthetic design. These different ambients can be used as a private sanctuary or as an entertainment space for social gatherings, always providing a well oriented and ventilated space.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsNew basement comprises a garage, a car wash, a bar, and a home theatre, and is connected with an existing cellar underneath the heritage house. The lift/stair shaft connects all levels, along with the private sky lounge on the second story with an unobstructed view of Melbourne city. The contemporary addition – pool, gym, and pavilion, designed on top of the basement – created the collection of various spaces, linked through access and visual connection.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe design seeks to create contrast – between old and new, cold and warm, and heavy and light. The imposing nature of the new structures and natural stone surfaces are balanced with the contrasting use of green walls and transparency provided by the large glazed surfaces utilized in the sliding doors opening the ground floor spaces to the exterior spaces and in the three-story lift/stairwell tower.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Peter BennettsComing from New Zealand, one of our clients’ main design brief elements was a wish to reflect the New Zealand coastal feeling and colors in the architectural and landscape design. That’s achieved by combining blue pool tiles with green landscaping patches and with incorporation of the Pohutukawa tree in the landscape design. As a background, the native New Zealand timber Rimu was used as a cladding on the lift shaft and pool pavilion ceiling.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsProject gallerySee allShow lessAvini Residential Building / Heram ArchitectsSelected ProjectsH.Stern New York / Studio Arthur CasasSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Peter Bennetts Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project 2018 CopyAbout this officeSTAR ArchitectureOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationHawthorn EastAustraliaPublished on March 22, 2019Cite: “Hawthorn East House / STAR Architecture” 22 Mar 2019.

first_imgThe offshore energy industry is constantly moving forward. Despite challenging times in the industry, there are impressive achievements that require celebration.During the Offshore Energy Opening Gala Dinner and Awards Show in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, held on Monday, 22 October 2017, for the second time Navingo brought the industry together to celebrate some of these successes by presenting three industry awards.The 420 attendees were very curious to find out who the winners of the Offshore Energy Awards would be.The black-tie dinner gala, hosted by Pep Rosenfeld of Boom Chicago, served a culinary dinner and offered sparking musical interludes by Junior Jazz Unlimited a Jazz bigband with young musicians ranging in age from 14 to 18 years old.The evening was officially opened by former Dutch cabinet member and energy activist Diederik Samsom.And the winners are…WINNER BEST INNOVATION IN OFFSHORE ENERGY AWARD: NEXT OCEANNext Ocean offers a new predictive wave motion technology to expand operational boundaries. By scanning sea waves they provide you with information on your ship’s motion minutes in advance. In our view this is an excellent innovation by new kids on the block. The problem of anticipating on (severe) wave conditions impacting operations at sea is a paramount one. The innovation includes analytics to come up with (huge) cost savings, improving safety of operations and realizing better use of assets at sea. It is a nice tool and ‘easy to understand’.It is applicable in a broad part of the spectrum of the Maritime & Offshore domain. The technology promises a lot and is currently proven by a respectable set of customers in this domain. When broadly validated we belief this is really a new innovation ‘in hand’. To prove yourself in this field we highly recommend you to develop an interesting revenue model, but we are sure that within a broad customer base there is absolutely room for this unique ‘Buienradar for waves’.WINNER OFFSHORE ENERGY PUBLIC OUTREACH AWARD: OUR OCEANS CHALLENGEOur Oceans Challenge created a network of companies related to the offshore and maritime industry, knowledge institutes and startup accelerators to address the need for a more sustainable offshore industry. They carefully bridge the challenges that companies and organizations in the offshore energy sector face with committed (yet solution driven) individuals and start-ups. The network of industry partners that Our Oceans Challenge established, offers the possibility to test, improve and accelerate ideas into actions. The integration of ideas in existing businesses or start-ups is stimulated in the yearly organized challenge. Through their online platform and the events they have organized, they have boosted knowledge sharing. Reaching people, with a sustainability softs pot, worldwide. Stimulating cooperation and innovation. It is a clear statement from the Offshore Industry, which will influence the public opinion in a positive way.WINNER OFFSHORE ENERGY YOUNG ENGINEER AWARD: DRIES LAMMENSDries is a great example of an excellent Young Engineer.
