The proposal was to add 3 repetitive small extensions to 3 living spaces within the existing openings of a Silos Apartment in Newtown. By doing so, the circular floor plans become more versatile and liveable. This happens by extending living spaces outwards, providing a subtle rectilinear geometry (while respecting the circle), and creating more useable shelter […]
The designs explore the atmospheric power of light and darkness, borrowed space, layers of privacy, and materiality, to create two textured urban dwellings in Newtown. A challenge was to improve upon the conventional terrace house type and to work within two very narrow and long sites. Below is a (very tiny) preview into the often […]
We are designing an extension to a Pettit + Sevitt architecturally designed project home conceived of by Ken Woolley AM (who, by the way, critiqued Vesna Trobec’s work when she was a Masters student at Sydney University). When an architect designs modifications to another architects work, it takes place like a conversation. In this case, it is a non […]
We will publish images of the process here as we explore the spatial potential of the Sydney terrace house. Contributors to this process are Russell Rodrigo, Min W Dark, and Vesna Trobec.
The new roof will improve the existing home by bringing in healthier light and air-flow, re-working spatial hierarchies to improve them, and by extending the living spaces upwards for a growing family. These models are some very early experiments by Michelle.
The photographer Alisha Gore is working on a creative artist series of photographs with people who have inspired her. She uses photography to tell a story about her subject’s creative (in this case architecture) practice. In her collaboration with Vesna Trobec she is focusing on Vesna’s use of layering, depth, and tone, in order to create rich […]
What is the minimal intervention that will create the biggest change to how an office works? STUDIO TROBEC have been commissioned to come up with strategies that re-think how the community organisation will work as it grows and inhabits various council-owned buildings. Their mission is to “pursue our vision of a fair society based upon […]
