This is our hybrid home extension project, with split apart modules that integrate ground floor and level 1 through a double height void. For more info and exciting pictures check out our new website
This treetop house flies out from the top of a 55 degree embankment, overlooking a creek. The Juliet balcony of the master bedroom is 8m above the ground. There is a large pop up roof with 360 degree operable glazing.
This ambitious looking luxury house is designed to take advantage of 270 degree views, and provide an expressive and iconic structure in its prominent hilltop setting. It is a large family home with luxury accomodation on the third storey.
This is our fully prefabricated, modular Pop Blocks house – It uses 4 x 40ft shipping containers, to achieve a 3-bedroom family home with study, 2 bathrooms, large entertainment deck, upper level balcony and roof garden. It has floor to ceiling glass throughout, natural timber veneer internal walls and ceilings, and solid bamboo floors. In this project we have clad the containers to a large extent, but are interested in peeling away these layers to reveal the structural form and true nature of the project. (Also it was mega-cheap to build)
Future City Architects is launching Pop Blocks, a new off-the-shelf, prefabricated, modular granny flat. You can customise your order from a single 15m² module for a backyard art studio, up to a 3-storey apartment with custom colours, cladding, solar panels and roof gardens.
Pop Blocks are the most affordable alternative to renovation, and can be rented out, providing immediate and very high return on investment.
Your piece of bespoke backyard modernism can be fully installed in 6 weeks from ordering, with no council application. As part of our launch we are offering significant discounts on the first few projects, so get in touch and we’ll give you all the details.
This project was designed with a 5-year lifespan, so that it could be removed and relocated when this central West End site is redeveloped. The clients are particularly interested in preserving small scale businesses and the arts and complementing the existing commercial and cultural value of the area. Ground floor boutique retail tenancies start as small as 13m². These are modular and connect to commercial space above. We utelised extensive solar panels and varied the orientaion, offset and colours of the containers to achieve rich articulation along Mollison Street.
Opulent new entertainment spaces for nightclub owner client, whose brief was to retain the existing house for rental, and have completely separate very large luxury 2 bedroom courtyard apartment at the rear. This project involves the lifting of an existing workers cottage, and excavating to produce clear spanning double height living volumes beneath, a large mezzanine bedroom extension, large indoor/ outdoor kitchen, and pool courtyard area. In this project the entire ground floor is the pool area eliminating pool fencing. There is one internal waist height door on Level 1 which acts as the pool area gate. Construction Documentation Phase
This unit development utilises uniform precast concrete wall panels, and lightweight concrete floor panels that are easily cast, replicated and transported. Every panel is designed to minimise labour, and speed up construction. We expect it to be significantly cheaper than conventional concrete block and in situ construction.
This sub division of a 1 hectare steeply sloping block includes a mix of houses, townhouses and multi residential units. All are configured to maximise views to the extensive parkland below. We modeled the site in 3D and massed all the buildings to check heights, accessibility, setbacks and how they meet the ground. So far so good! Concept design stage.
