Text description provided by the architects. Situated near Melbourne on the Mornington Peninsula, this project on the Mornington foreshore creates two double storey houses on a lot facing Port Phillip Bay and bordering the mouth of a local creek.

© Nic Granleese © Nic Granleese

The houses utilise a palette of materials appropriate to their coastal location and surrounds, integrating an indigenous coastal landscape to create a building with a sensitivity to its location. The design seeks to bring foreshore pier proportions and detailing across the road and contribute to the public realm in the way it interacts with the creek mouth.

The houses have been designed and built using Habitech's modular flat packed wall and roof panels. The project was completed on a technically challenging site in

The desire of this family was to share the house with their friends and family. They wanted to live in a house that welcomed and "hugged" incoming guests, but at the same time generated the necessary privacy for the meeting.

The house is divided according to its program (public, private and services) in different volumes that are differentiated by their materiality.

The services volume is of cement, harder and more closed, and turns around the west, protecting the house from the more complicated hours of the sun and the views of the neighbors.

PRO.CRE.AR PERROUD The search for design spaces that characterize the residence is marked in the belief of time as a design pattern, which takes different logical structures depending on their specific characteristics in relation to what surrounds them. In this sense, the PRO.CRE.AR House adopts as premise two instances: the first in relation to social structures and the second in relation to technology and costs. Such social structures take form from flexibility as "dynamic space" where the rationalization of it creates, in an empirically way, the spatial experience. Thus, the residence is built for a growing family, that is, for an hour it is a couple with a

Text description provided by the architects. The bones that compose the multi-purpose barn at Critter Creek had a previous life as the owners’ home. After sheltering the homeowners for two decades, the structure was initially slated for demolition to make way for the family’s new home. Instead, the firm and client decided to repurpose and relocate the existing structure, preserving the spirit and memory embedded in this place.

Exposed timber frame beams and rafters were carefully dismantled and numbered for reassembly. Re-engineered with new galvanized steel connectors, the rebuilt timber frame was extended to complete the entire barn interior.
