We received an interesting project from property consultant Cody Derrick, of CityHome Collective. The project description we were sent made us smile towards the end: “3602 East Apollo Drive has been through it. Aside from the kidney shaped black bottom pool added in the 70’s, the rehab on this beauty has taken place over the last 4 years. As with many property transformations; the bones put in place and the vision of the original architect weighed heavy on every decision including the final furniture placed and the last art hung. Underneath, the pool got new guts, the electrical got re-wired, plumbing; re-done. While above ground the duplex fireplace anchoring the house was presented with a new burnt timber facade. On the list of newness; walnut and tile floors, cast concrete, stainless steel fixtures, a reconfigured master bedroom and bath, bar, open layout, off kitchen deck, and a brand new shiny glass passageway allowing connection with the outdoors and time for coffee on the private master deck with incredible views. Leaving 3602 must be akin to breaking up with the most attractive person you’ve ever met. We’ve both been through it. I may never love again“. There are plenty of photos to go through, so enjoy and get inspired!
The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.
Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
