Queenscliff Residence

Architecture - Residential - Constructed

- Winner 
View

This house acts as an optical instrument, a series of devices that frame views beyond the abutting foreshore to the south toward the Heads of Port Phillip Bay. The most significant promenade through the house takes you from the street, along a gently stepped path, to the entry stair, where you are sufficiently elevated to appreciate the view as you arrive at the uppermost level. The careful choreography of this sequence is amplified by materiality and adjacencies: fine timber detailing, woven wicker and calacatta marble in the kitchen. The experience on entry is private and cocooned from the exterior. Once above, the views expand and are focussed on the horizon of the ocean to the south.

The Ergonomic IV Pole arose in response to a call from the Bio–Medical Engineering Department, of a major public hospital, on Public Liability, OH&S and Equipment Security grounds.

Construction Knitting Patterns

The Construction Knitting project is created through a collaboration between knitwear designer Nikki Gabriel, and graphic designer Anthony Chiappin. Construction Knitting Patterns and recycled Wooli Yarn, are a DIY knitting package created to stimulate a new interest in knitting that is relevant to our current design culture, as opposed to the nanna-craft it is commonly associated with. By engaging recycled materials into the project and fusing contemporary graphic design imagery to communicate the structural knitting instructions, this project attempts to transform the idea of the conventional knitting pattern into a contemporary print media design collectible, and in function create an experience where pleasure and fashion are linked by awareness and responsibility.
