Mel Bright of Make Architecture

Make Architecture skilfully balances the public life of the city and the private domain in its growing suite of carefully considered, highly crafted residential projects.

The velvety black facade is formed from more than seven kilometres of aluminium sections, meticulously cut and installed piece by piece.

Strongbox for living: Ross House

A bold, sculptural form rising among quaint weatherboard bungalows, this Northcote house playfully addresses its heritage context while providing a warm and joyful home for a family of five.

The studio presents a modest facade to the rear lane, but adopts a more playful form to address the existing house.

Striking a chord: Treetop Studio

Hovering above the garage of a terrace house, this unassuming studio creates a calm space to listen to and make music, while also breathing life into an existing courtyard.

The garden pavilion is linked to the extant brick house through a “binary play of gold and grey.”

Unapologetically suburban: Binary House

A garden pavilion designed by Christopher Polly Architect provides a striking counterpoint to a 1960s brick bungalow, subverting the physical and conceptual limitations of an “unapologetically suburban” setting.

Eureka moments: Hatherlie

An unusual Victorian terrace house with ties to Ned Kelly and the Eureka Stockade has been sensitively updated, with a geometrically imaginative addition creating new living space while respecting the original house’s character.

The resolution between the split corridor and the roof frame above it remains one of the more exciting moments for architect Russell Jack.

Revisited: Pymble House

A play on levels, roof planes and uncommon craftsmanship, this 1970s house by Allen Jack and Cottier – long kept somewhat secret – is a thrilling exemplar of the organic modernism of the Sydney School.
