Figtree Pocket Newmarket

The genesis of Fig Tree Pocket, four buildings ranged around a grand fig tree in a leafy corner of the Newmarket precinct in Randwick, was its bold angled precast concrete blades. Designed to manage privacy and sun, these rhythmical vertical elements rise and fold to form elevated roofs over the clerestory windows serving the top floor apartments. Fig Tree Pocket is now selling.

2017 AIA National Architecture Awards

We’re delighted that Indigo Slam has received The Emil Sodersten Award for Interior Architecture at the 2017 Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) National Awards. Commended by the jury as “a vessel for art and life that is an artwork in itself – a perfectly pitched composition of space and light. Indigo Slam represents nothing less than a new design performance benchmark. It is a masterly work of architecture.”

Receiving the National Award for Residential Architecture – Multiple Housing, Crown 515 presents a dynamic form to the street, reinterpreting the terrace in a contemporary design of angular shapes and shimmering tessellated tiles that reveal an active public corner “providing a connective interface and engagement with the public realm.”

We would like to thank the entire design and construction team for both projects, as well as our wonderful clients. Read more about Indigo Slam here and Crown 515 here.
