Floating Roof Construction Underway by liz wallace

We love this framing stage, it always seems such a shame to have to close it in! This floating pavilion roof is part of a renovation on a Craig Craig and Moller original. We hope the clerestory glazing around all 3 sides will retain the lightness of this roof in the final product.

Loft Conversion by liz wallace

These are some renders we did for a conversion of the top floor of an old movie theatre. The building has great bones that we want to make the most of. We are aiming to celebrate the old timber trusses and steel connections along with the concrete exterior walls. Our approach is to insert a contemporary bedroom and mezzanine pod, cool lighting and leave the rest to the existing building! 

Exterior shots of Roseneath House by liz wallace

Hello,

We've designed a private courtyard for the Roseneath house which accommodates a spacious BBQ area, a flat lawn with a view over the city, a clear entrance pathway and a shaded entry.

It's great to see it  finished and  ready for summer and christmas, we hope it'll be a place with  many happy memories.

Having a quick look at the concrete and timber option for this site. Precast concrete panels can all go up in a day! Macrocarpa or hardwood louvres to add warmth to elevation but offer privacy and sun shade to master bedroom.
