The Architect Prineas team have just returned from a great weekend away in Melbourne where we attended the Design Speaks: Housing Futures Forum along with the HOUSES Awards 17 where the Allen Key House was shortlisted. The conference was an inspiring day of local and international speakers, all of whom sought to challenge the future of residential design in Australia. The Houses Awards were equally as inspiring. It was fantastic to be surrounded by the talent of the Australian residential architecture community and see first hand the best of the last year's residential design. We would like to wish a big congratulations to all the winners!

JUNE 2017

The recent drop in temperature has come as a very chilly reminder that we are just about halfway through 2017! Here's an update of a couple of exciting things that have been happening BTS at Architect Prineas. 

1. I N S I D E  O U T .  Allen Key House.

Be sure to check out this month's issue of Inside Out magazine to see an exciting before & after feature of our Allen Key House. The article focuses on the client's experience throughout the entire design and construction process along with a break down of the key design moves that led to the resulting architecture. 

Jo, our client, sums up the project and the process beautifully: "You see the drawings, you see the model, but until you are standing in the space looking up at it, you don't get that sense of drama."


2.  A U S T R A L I A  B Y  D E S I G N .  

Counting down from 10 - 1 across the country, Network Ten's new series, Australia by Design is set to put Australian architecture well and truly on the map. Showcasing a broad range of projects deemed to be the best architect designed spaces across each state, the series will be hosted by renowned architect Tim Horton, along with each state's Government Architect. 

Tune in from 3pm on July 15 to see Eva-Marie and Peter Poulet talking through a very special Architect Prineas project.

Architect Prineas is excited to announce that the recently completed Nano Pad has been invited to be included in an upcoming exhibition at the University of Sydney's Tin Sheds Gallery. The exhibition is set to explore a series of residential projects seen to be exemplars of transformative architecture that produces a high level of amenity within the limitations of a small footprint. The exhibition seeks to signal a renewal of the way in which housing is viewed within the context of the city. 

The event will open on the 4th of August, 2017.

Over the course of building a project, a unique bond is formed when a homeowner entrusts the vision for their living spaces to an architect. Collaboration of this sort is deeply personal for both parties. To create effective, joyful and enduring spaces that adapt to the routines of daily life, it can be necessary for clients to divulge intimate truths about their home and family lives. In this way, architects also reveal the deep-seated values that govern their creative process and philosophy of architecture. 

Join Eva-Marie on Saturday October 29 at 2pm as she unravels the intricate nature of the client-architect exchanges with client, Ariana Koller. Working together, Eva-Marie & Ariana successfully navigated this complex process to create House Koller. Through a careful balance of communication, trust & respect the combined vision for House Koller allowed the pair to share knowledge & experience to create high quality spaces that continue to evolve and adapt to the demands of life, work and play for a growing family.

Happy Mother's Day.

May 2017

This weekend all of us at Architect Prineas are tightening up our running shoes to partake in the annual Mother's Day Classic! Some were coerced by the more seasoned runners in the office with the promise of matching pink baseball caps, others with the assurance of a post-run breakfast at Fratelli Paradiso. None-the-less, we are all excited to be running for an extremely worthwhile cause and one that is very close to all of our hearts. Wishing all the amazing mums out there a happy Mother's Day - we hope you are all suitably spoilt!
