Campbell said; “We’ve had such amazing success with You Beauty with an incredibly supportive audience, so I’m very proud we have an opportunity to take the concept to the next level and open our very first store at Sydney Airport’s T2. We are looking forward to seeing our customers enjoy this unique, limited-time experience.”

Sydney Airport General manager Retail Glyn Williams said delivering unique and exclusive concepts like You Beauty for customers to enjoy was a key aspect of the airport’s retail strategy. “We’re also extremely proud to support the Australian and New Zealand skincare brands featured within You Beauty’s beautifully designed store.”

This is a place that listeners are seeking out to go to and experience the products they are hearing about for themselves. It’s created a unique airport destination and is exciting to see.”

JUNE 2018 – Anchor House Design

This house is a coastal weekend residence sitting on a steeply sloping site with a commanding view of the surf coast. The design proposes a 2 level building with an upper level entry opening to living spaces and an elevated terrace. A skillion roof allows sunlight penetration deep into the interior. The bedroom accommodation and rumpus are located on the lower levels, all with an aspect of the coastal view. The plan form has been generated to both maximise viewing opportunities of the coastline and distant hills from various areas within the dwelling, as well as to allow for view sharing with the neighbouring properties.

October 2017 – 3D Concept of Catholic Church

News
/

A principal design objective for this church was to create engagement with the broader local community. One of the primary initiatives was the carefully considered layering of materials and spaces to create a transparent architecture that would be inviting and hospitable. The arrival experience starts on approach with a welcoming entrance designed to be open and accessible and draw visitors from the main entrance towards the worshiping space. The message of religious culture is communicated subtly through the play of light and shadow in this architecture.

The planning for the site echoes the community engagement ethos by seeking to anchor the church to the broader pastoral care and education activities of the parish.

The church has a raw, natural and non-decorative material language. Materials and finishes reflect the rural location, with the proposed use of local natural materials to enable skilled expertise from parishioners. This church seeks to provide not only a worship and meditation space for Christians, but also a gathering place for the community.
