A pro bono project on the drawing board. We're putting together ideas to cheaply convert a van to sell craftwork by Mozambique women to improve their lives, using standard off the shelf objects like ladders.
Richmond is crumbling. The street trees are uprooting the old buildings in search for water. We have two projects on the drawing board where Yarra Council have removed street trees and the owners have engaged us to design an addition at the same time as fixing the damage.
New year fireworks can be seen from Richmond. Two of our clients want roof decks so they can see fireworks and the city skyline. One we have a planning permit for and are doing construction drawings, the other is out to tender to start construction soon.
Our 3 townhouses in Glen Huntly are under construction for a builder/developer. He bought a job lot of windows from someone elses failed development so we'll be redesigning to include those. When working with builders on their own projects, design can be fluid. We appreciate trades and they appreciate us.
We are finishing off building permit drawings and discussing the detail with a builder for an addition in Port Melbourne ready to start soon.
We are hoping to expand into Launceston, as we are currently relocating office there where Dave will be Associate Professor at UTAS. Jane will be continuing architectural works in Melbourne, while designing an air bnb in the sheds of our new place at 42 Herbert St, Launceston. Sheds are a thing in Launceston.
