Three-dimensional craft: Edwards Moore

A look at the recent built projects of Melbourne studio Edwards Moore reveals a delightful body of work underpinned by conceptual rigour, spatial complexity and a “cheeky tilt.”

Projects

The upper pavilion stands above the rocky terrain, while the lower pavilion is embedded in the flatter part of the site.
Projects | Tobias Horrocks | 18 Nov 2016

Joining forces: Split House

A pair of pavilions come together to create a family home that considers privacy, thermal comfort and spatial delight.

The back of the home is configured into a series of orderly layers that work with the slope of the site.
Projects | Alexandra Brown | 30 Nov 2016

An ‘escaped undercroft’: Camp Hill Extension

An interesting model for alterations and additions to a Queenslander home: Camp Hill Extension by Neilsen Workshop and Morgan Jenkins Architecture.

A timber-framed pergola, accessible through both the rumpus and living spaces, is an ideal spot for children to play.
Projects | Trisha Croaker | 2 Dec 2016

Garden pavilion: Canada Bay House

A flexible home with a diversity of spatial moods and experiences: Canada Bay House.

The roofs of the two pavilions follow the line of the landscape, while indoor and outdoor living spaces are suspended above the slope.
Projects | Margie Fraser | 12 Dec 2016

Lost World pavilions: Ridge House

A striking pavilion duo by Sparks Architects that encourages a connection with the landscape while referencing the heritages of the owners.

Revisited

The Evans House is set well back from the road on a sharp slope, rising fortress-like from the hillside.
Projects | Eugenie Keefer Bell | 29 Nov 2016

Revisited: Evans House by Enrico Taglietti and Associates

This early 1970s structure holds a commanding presence on its sloped site, demonstrating skilful choreography of the experience of arrival and considered layering of horizontal and vertical planes.

Postscript

The pavilion references the forms and materials of the Art Deco home that it’s tucked behind.
Projects | Mary Mann | 21 Oct 2016

Aligning the Art Deco chakra: Backyard Yoga Studio

More than a space for practising yoga, this clever little pavilion by Folk Architects is also a reminder of the value of nature and a nod to the heritage of the home it’s tucked behind.
