Quality of life
'The waterdog' is a state-of-the-art workspace where working almost becomes a spiritual experience. No more dull and unimaginative offices; be inspired by a challenging working environment where past, present and future are inextricably linked. By stacking the different offices and spreading out the various departments across different floors, a constant sense of dynamism is created in the workspace.

Feel good
One of the most important requirements at the start of the design process was to reopen the historic building to the public.

This was achieved by creating a big open space at the heart of the old chapel. By stacking offices in a box-like fashion, the necessary space was freed up

Compact
Our idea is to create three townhouses with security parking (the original brief) that are contemporary and exciting yet completely at home in the historic neighbourhood of Balmain.

Covering just 2/3 (approximately 180sqm of 270sqm) of a tiny urban infill site that has amazing views across the trees and rooftops towards the city and Anzac Bridge, the houses are designed down to the millimetre to accommodate competing fire regulation and separation, amenity and utility requirements.

Text description provided by the architects. The project contains new student housing at Toneheim Folkehøgskole, meant to replace the existing housing. The student housing is organized around a common yard, a Norwegian traditional typology called “tun”. The new structure is vernacular and exiting, and deeply rooted in the site and history. The new tun is a place where students, teachers and others thrive, both inside and outside. A place where traditions meets modern architecture with a personal expression – con anima!

Text description provided by the architects. A long and narrow apartment in a preservation listed building on Tel-Aviv's Rothschild Boulevard. Open-minded and daring customers gave a fascinating challenge for a 93m² apartment: a room for each of the three children and for the parents, 2 bathrooms and a spacious living area. The starting point was unusual: the children's rooms were designed to be minimal, functional and simple thus providing a wider living space in the public areas.

The narrow structure demanded a particularly long corridor (9m in length) to enable access to all rooms. Therefore, the corridor and the exposed silicate-brick wall together became one of the two elements that directed the
