Napoleons Early Learning Centre

… rotate device for larger images …

A new centre for a small country town the Napoleon Early Learning Centre is proposed to be located next to the local school thus creating the beginnings of an education precinct.
 
Public buildings in small towns become so much more than just the building that they are. They are rarely single use which is the case here, the Napoleon’s Early Learning Centre will offer child care, kindergarten, community meeting facilities as well as maternal child health services.
 
The architecture is contemporary styled with timber cladding being used as a reference to the rural surrounds whilst giving it a warm and inviting feel. A large canopy veranda is provided to the front which will encourage gathering and interaction beyond picking up your children.

Barkly Street Development

… rotate device for larger images …

This innovative four townhouse development of contemporary design, is located in Footscray on a busy road with rear lane access. A reverse living design provides views over the adjacent parkland.
 
Car parking is from the lane to the rear of the site with the land that would typically be used as driveway to front of the site becoming a feature landscape strip which also provides a buffer to the adjoining neighbours.
 
Whilst a contemporary design, the townhouses are respectful of the surrounding neighbourhood in both scale and materials. For example, a contemporary styled timber cladding is a reference to the adjoining weatherboard properties.
 
The innovative design delivers a good return on investment for the client while being respectful to the neighbourhood and addressing the needs of the council … things we look to achieve in all our development projects.
