Your Sol Alias: Crepuscule Observatory
Watson’s Bay holds a poetic gravitas - it is both the stark edge of Australia’s massive landform, a jagged, exposed cusp of billions of years of geological sediment, and one of the first areas of Australia the dawn rays touch. All architectural instances upon the earth are another ephemeral layer of sediment; a manmade, forced authigenesis fated to eventually erode alongside the earth upon the planet's surface. As both intellectual retreat and heuristic naked-eye observatory – the Crepuscular Observatory aims to indulge human thirst for knowledge, catalysed through Constructivist structural ideologies, immersive, heuristic spaces, and phenomenal scales.

Alliance Française​​

A study of multi-cultural aspects of place within the urban fabric. I took the 19th Century French Impressionist art movement as the conceptual basis for the Alliance Française's new office fit-out in Southport on the Gold Coast. The design considers how a building both fits in and stands out within its environment, while giving back to the community with a surrounding green pavilion.

Chevron Island Green Bridge

With the persistent development of the Gold Coast, there is an equal need for infrastructure that enhances quality of life in the urban sphere. This project called for the design of a pedestrian bridge that promotes green modes of transport, and is not only a passageway between two spaces but an intriguing destination in itself. My design draws inspiration from the gestural human form and works of Santiago Calatrava.

Central Column House

This second year project required a small, universally accessible residence to be designed at the Currumbin Eco Village within the Currumbin Valley, considering all features of a home for 'lifetime living'. The structure is built completely with locally sourced or reused materials. To maximise the potential of the small interior space, partition walls were eliminated and the internal design revolves around a singular multifunctional column. The structurally effective column incorporates an internal water reservoir at the base for water collection and thermal cooling, internal bathroom at 1st floor level, smart-folding furniture systems, storage spaces and a compact kitchenette. The space is fully wheelchair accessible and complies with all Australian standards for universal access.
