Hamersley Road Residence is the result of converting an early 1900?s Australian workers cottage into a contemporary and practical family home. Despite being untouched for over 90 years, the existing building was rescued and rejuvenated by the creative team at Studio 53. The most striking element regarding this house design is a yellow ‘box’-shaped volume, gently placed on top of the ground floor behind the gable of the existing home. This distinctive element was wrapped in a perforated screen to shade and protect living spaces from the sun.

Here is more from the architects describing the unconventional addition: “The conception of the box is integral to the design of this house. Internally, the box is its own zone; bedrooms, bathroom and play room for the children. Externally the box defines the character of the extension, highlighting the change from existing house to contemporary home in a sympathetic but contrasting manner”. The intricately patterned screen enveloping the box on all sides offers a high level of privacy, but also opportunities for passive surveillance of the street. A perfect indoor-outdoor connection can be observed throughout the residence and each interior has its own vivid personality. How do you appreciate the outcome of this modern restoration project?

Value for money is not, and never was, the same as being cheap. Value for money means making the most of whatever budget is available. A good example of this is Hayes Primary School in London, by Hayhurst and Co. Having to contend with a tightly controlled 3 million local authority budget, they worked with the existing structure of the primary school to give it a much needed update. A striking polished stainless steel brise-soleil facade installed at the school’s entrance, gives the school’s many different buildings a sense of identity, while new classrooms have been created in a range of shapes and sizes, and are often flooded with natural light

A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city
