An installation screen for one of Adelaide's largest engineering firms, Bestec.Built as a partition between the main office and entry thoroughfare, the concept focuses around the companies business axiom 'bringing buildings to life'. Beginning two-dimensionally, the wall gradually builds into a layered three-dimensional form.
The design is a result of abstracting ideas associated with the human influence on engineering projects. The undulated layers create a crescendo of movement alluding to the ideathat each individual at Bestec adds an element to every project.Symbolised by the turbulence of each layer, the end of the wall has stronger undulations reflecting the culmination of a project and the fruition of 'bringing a building to life'.
Set in the Adelaide Hills, this Cellar Door is an extension of the established Bird in Hand Winery. It brings a new tasting, business and small meals experience into the program of the site. Made for exclusive visiting hours the structure is set away from the main winery, overlooking the vineyards and adjacent dam.
As a product, wine is far removed from its original source, the grape.However correlations between the final product and its source arestill evident. This idea – the interrelationship between the ‘natural’and ‘manufactured’ was appropriated to the surrounding site andused to generate form for the structure. Hill models were abstractedand applied with an angular process. This process representedthe mechanized nature associated with winemaking. The structurecontrasts the immediate setting of the site, however draws upon it as source of creation.

Referencing the popularity and prevalence of GlenOsmond Bluestone in Adelaide during the 1850-1920’s, forms were generated around the idea ofsplitting rock. Distilled into two sheer cuts the motifof linking the past and present together through a central medium have been explored. A lower sheer cut represents Adelaide’s past, creating an angledsurface towards the street. This embodies lookingback to the past with a literally represented view. Thehigher sheer cut angles a face towards Adelaide’s skyline, alluding to the present aspect of Adelaide as agrowing city. The angled cuts are connected by a rockmedium, yet are at far corners to give distance andchronological relevance to the idea of linking the pastand present. The final built form is not a solid rock mass nor made from bluestone, however the sheerangles are a reference back to the history of Adelaide.
Moisterizer packaging for 'Altus', a boutique mens skin care range.
The forms reference crystalline structures found deep within the ocean, with the derivation of 'Altus' from the latin word 'Depth'.
Some bespoke concrete candles holders made for some bespoke people I know.
An inner city apartment building concept. Derived from the sketch this render was produced using 3ds max and Vray.
When time was of the essence, these visualisations were created within one working day. The concepts were resolved, but modelling, texturing and photoshop work was all completed within one day.
Branding for Melbourne based Architecture Festival 'Assemblage'.
Developed around a modular grid, the branding focuses upon anomalies and distortions which builds to create the letter 'A'. The distortions represent the unique ways systems of architecture respond with the built world, bending and morphing this strict grid into a form legible by people.
