Responding to the ongoing need for affordable and considered social housing, Brickworks and esteemed architectural firm, Breathe, have collaborated with Aboriginal Housing Victoria (AHV), to bring to life a new direction in quality, multi-residential projects.
Located in the inner-city suburb of Alexandria, Arkadia is a multi-residential building which is built from half a million recycled bricks.The complex, which was designed by DKO and BREATHE Architecture, is revolutionary in its challenge of typical city living, creating a community that combines lush green spaces and a number of sustainable initiatives.
This carbon neutral brick home was built to respond sensitively to its heritage environment. The use of Daniel Robertson bricks established material continuity from the internal eco-conscious materials to the exterior spaces.
With its double-height towers, arched windows and sweeping décolletage staircase, it may be a shock to hear that perhaps the most impressive part of this home is not its striking façade, but its incredible sustainable credentials.
Set on the idyllic shores of Gravelly Beach, Stoney Rise Wine’s new cellar door, conceptualised by Cumulus Studio is a sculptural build, modern in form yet natural in materiality. An angular structure, with sloping diagonal features, the project plays with light, casting shadow over the grassy hills surrounding the Cellar Door.
Bristile Roofing's Light Collections brings a fresh appearance to any project with their soft and luminous hues. Our new light roof tile colours are low in solar absorption and are suitable in areas that require light roof ratings.
