Melbourne Hotel

A striking mid-rise boutique hotel development expanding the capacity of this late 19th-century heritage ‘gold rush’ hotel. The completely refurbished hotel comprises 22 refurbished heritage rooms and 51 new rooms. Rooms share a circulation ‘street’ space woven through and around the heritage building. A three-level glazed conservatory space delineates the original 1897 building fabric and the new boutique rooms. Within, the materiality expressed contrasts the rustic and textural rear of the building with a contemporary internal façade. It includes an extended food and beverage offer, an expanded function and business facility and new rooftop bar. Joel Barbitta Two scales predominate. Low rise frontages... En savoir plus

Projet • By BuchanBureaux


The redevelopment concept transforms a 1970’s single-level building, above a depressed retail precinct and underused courtyard, into a 5-star Green Star nine-storey A-grade office tower, enhanced retail plaza and significant urban space. Silvertone Photography Buchan’s principal design philosophy in transforming this unique heritage landmark is to create a vital and energising public domain. The new office tower consists of a simple stepped rectangular volume that maximises net lettable areas, flexibility and daylight access for office floors. The design of the new retail centre incorporates frameless glass shopfronts to a realigned arcade. This  now provides a direct vista from Hay Street through to St Georges Terrac... En savoir plus

Exhibition design for "ANUGA"

In our project we wanted to merge Georgian heritage and modern  design together to show visitors our  point of view  how to keep together heritage sites and modern shapes . We have  minimalistic shapes with white metal frames and historic Georgian house named "Oda" in all 3 stands. Also in Georgia wine has religious and cultural significance. Georgia is one of the oldest wine regions in the world and is considered as the “cradle of wine.”  The inspiration behind the shape of the building comes from Fibonacci’s golden ratio. The universe is built according to “divine proportions” and can be identified in the structure of many organisms. Caption Caption The main challenge of th... En savoir plus

Urban revitalization of the Gredelj Zone

The abandoned industrial zone in the center of the city of Zagreb has occupied for decades the spaces that now give us the opportunity for the first systematic town planning after a long time.  The zone extends between Branimirova and Vukovarska streets and the railway and bus station. This area of 45 hectares is one of the most important spatial potentials of the City of Zagreb, only a 15-minute walk from the centre. For comparison, this area is twice the size of the Old City of Dubrovnik. The reconstruction of the Gredelj zone is an opportunity to solve one of the biggest urban problems in Zagreb, which is the disconnection between the north and the south. Because of the railway tracks these two parts of the city are connected at o... En savoir plus

Projet • By GUILLEM CARRERA arquitecteMaisons privées


Un bâtiment familial qui date à l'origine des XVII-XVIII siècles et qui a subi plusieurs interventions. Le plan de l'étage a été utilisé pendant de nombreuses années comme un atelier de forgeron, ce qui donne au bâtiment un caractère spécial. Le temps qui passe et le manque d'entretien ont fait que le bâtiment a présenté un mauvais état de conservation, ce qui signifie qu'autrement réparé, il pourrait être dégradé dans une courte période de temps.   Il est prévu une réhabilitation en plusieurs phases, commençant par le toit, continuant par les façades et la terrasse...

House van der Merwe Coetzee

This project was completed under Meyer & Associates' previous iteration - MEYER+VORSTER.   The architects were briefed three years ago by a professional couple to design a small, low maintenance city residence in De Waterkant, which could be used during the week while they were involved with their medical practices. Their life would be shared between this house and a large weekend house at Aurora, a few hours from Cape Town. The clients emphasised that the design of the house had to be bespoke, with every aspect of it, purpose made and purpose designed around their specific needs, requirements and busy lifestyle. This instruction gave rise to a somewhat unorthodox spatial configuration and programme, developed in close consultati... En savoir plus

House in the Fort

Located in the south coast of the Parque Natural da Arrábida-Sesimbra, the Fort of São Domingo da Baralha is the first defensive construction that has been built, possibly around 1665, with the purpose of defending the Setubal port and its coast. ​ The building was once home to three army deposit, a water tank and a defensive platform, currently, in ruin, the platform is used by fishermen, the water tank is no longer functional and one portal is still left from the service areas.   The idea for a fisherman home in this fort came after its surprising discovery on a day trip done close by the close by Cabo Espichel lighthouse.   The idea is to conserve the original stone walls by inhabiting the ruin with a new st...

Alexandre-de-Sève Town House

In 2017, the townhouse owners contacted Montreal architect Guillaume Lévesque for a very unique renovation project. They wanted to transform an old 1880s duplex into a multi-unit and harmonize the original style of the building with a decidedly contemporary and uncluttered addition.   RestorationRestoring a 19th-century house while retaining the heritage and creating a contemporary addition is quite a challenge.   The original 60m2 building has been fully restored and converted into two apartments: a two-floor 4 ½ and a 3 ½ on the second floor.   Both apartments have an open plan with abundant fenestration with large 3.65m high side windows carved into the brick wall. The attic has been completely c... En savoir plus
