Mosman Park House (envisioned by Paul Burnham Architect Pty Ltd) sits on an elevated corner site overlooking the Swan River at Point Roe, Mosman Park, Australia and comprises two transverse sheds. The main form is a steel frame structure which is fully glazed to the side street. The glass wall is externally treated with a screen of large scale operable louvers. This mechanized façade allows total control of privacy and sun penetration, according to the season and the time of the day. The second volume is set back from the front street, creating a private elevated front garden and establishing effective privacy from both streets. The second volume is similarly fully glazed for maximum river views.

The house is an upside down design with all children’s rooms located on the ground floor and the main living areas and parents rooms on the first floor to take advantage of the panoramic views of the busy Swan River. Teak was selected as a natural and weather resilient timber appropriate for the waterside setting. The high oil content of Teak and natural weathering properties makes it one of the most durable and attractive exterior timbers.

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.

Value for money is not, and never was, the same as being cheap. Value for money means making the most of whatever budget is available. A good example of this is Hayes Primary School in London, by Hayhurst and Co. Having to contend with a tightly controlled 3 million local authority budget, they worked with the existing structure of the primary school to give it a much needed update. A striking polished stainless steel brise-soleil facade installed at the school’s entrance, gives the school’s many different buildings a sense of identity, while new classrooms have been created in a range of shapes and sizes, and are often flooded with natural light
