Springhill House

Springhill House is a private dwelling designed for an author and artistic director seeking a tree-change from living in the inner suburbs of Melbourne.

The dwelling is part of a larger project of re-imagining and revitalizing an under worked paddock into a place of habitation, connection and reflection. The project explores place-making within a vast rural setting and supports the notion that a dwelling has emotional foundations and memory intrinsic to its physical built form.

PLACE

At its core, the work of the practice celebrates life, relationships, stories and the richness of our shared environments. We seek to extract clear, legible ideas that capture the essence and beauty of place, respectfully.

We do this with the aim to o a er a heightened experience of a place to people that inhabit it. We believe in architecture’s restorative potential to repair and mend urban fabric as well as inspire and be wholly life-enhancing. We aspire to create environments that house memory and invite people to connect with each other or themselves.

TO DWELL

It is important and intuitive to the practice that the built environment reinforces the quality of being at home in the world. That projects, whether in the public or private sphere, provide a physical framework for each person to feel supported in their day-to-day activities. To achieve this, the practice consciously seeks to engage all our bodily senses, to create environments that are experienced through touch, smell, sound, as well as sight.

TO MAKE

Architecture isn’t pure, it is messy and imperfect. Our projects celebrate the resonance of space and atmosphere through texture, grit and material. We are inspired by the relationship and properties of materials that encourage interaction and create an emotive response.

Our projects celebrate the resonance of space and atmosphere through texture, grit and material. From a broad scale down to minute details, we contemplate the one-on-one interactions with a building, where you may touch a handrail, open a drawer, perceive the framing of a view, understand the way materials join or appreciate the quality of light and shadow.

This fascination with the tactility of material and making drives the process of the practice. We employ a range of mediums and  also our own divergent interests through art, literature and research to look at each project with a fresh set of eyes. We value the importance of these broader influences to inform how we think about the world and our place within it.
