North Avoca House by Savio Parsons - Contextually Responsive Design - The Local Project
As an affront to the typical residential coastal offering, the approach to North Avoca stemmed from a motivation to embrace the site’s many obstacles and create a contextually-responsive architecture. Savio Parsons’ North Avoca project represents a passion for engagement with a larger dialogue extending beyond pure aesthetics and form making.
Yandoit Cabin by Adam Kane Architects - Sustainable Cabin Architecture - The Local Project
Adam Kane Architects designed Yandoit Cabin as an eco-home for an artist to live and work within the surrounding gumtrees. Situated in north-west of Melbourne, the house is tucked into the bushland and carefully composed of a series of grids. Yandoit Cabin locks these together with low-maintenance materials to create a form that works with the surrounding environment. Crucial to the build were self-sustainable factors allowing for off-grid living and minimal impact on the site.

Chamfer House by Ha Architecture - The Fisher & Paykel Series Feature
Nestled deferentially behind a double-storey Victorian terrace, the Chamfer House by Ha Architecture gracefully addresses the inherent challenges of its restricted site and heritage context. Set in the middle of a row of terraces, the Chamfer House suffered from a complete absence of natural light in the centre of the building, while planning and heritage restrictions created a challenge for the new addition.
Edsall Street by Ritz&Ghougassian-The Armadillo & Co Series-Collection - The Local Project
Edsall Street by Ritz&Ghougassian takes habitation as its primary focus, from which emerges an architectural language that, in turn, influences form. Yet to the casual observer, Edsall Street would appear to be defined first and foremost by its form. A minimalist combination of cream masonry blockwork and timber-batten screening, Edsall Street presents an almost fortress-like facade, juxtaposed against the dainty white Victorian cottage that originally occupied the site in leafy Malvern.
