Red Walls and Glistening Fins Defining a Modern Home in Australia

The creative team at WoodWoodWard Architecture completed the design for Finn House, a modern residence settled amid the trees and coastal scrub on the Silverleaves Foreshore, in Victoria, Australia. The architecture of the project stands out due to the use of red glazed brick walls, functionally separating the areas of the residence. Here is more information from the official description provided by the architects: “Reminiscent of a Serra sculpture, the two striking red glazed-brick blade walls cut through the site, organizing the program into linear bands including a services strip, private program and public program. Vertical circulation through the house is via a continuous corkscrew staircase connecting all five levels. Cleverly located between the two blade walls, the staircase requires the visitor to pass between the three distinct programmatic zones through thresholds in the brickwork, emphasizing the red walls as the separator and mediator“. How do you appreciate the use of color in this particular project? [Photography: John Gollings]

A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city

What is new and exciting now can quickly begin to look tired and out of fashion, so the best buildings don’t just consider what will be interesting to look at now, but also how it might look to people in five, fifty or even a hundred years’ time. 2013’s hotly contested RIBA Stirling Prize went to Witherford Watson Mann Architects for their work on Astley Castle, Warwickshire. In what RIBA Past President Stephen Hodder has described as an extreme retrofit, the project essentially saw a new building inserted subtly into the heart of the old, with a new, two storey residence now hidden within the sandstone walls of the ruins of this medieval castle, to be used as a holiday home for up to eight guests
