Some not so recent work for landscape architect’s UDLA based out of Fremantle Western Australia. Shooting through early to late afternoon the site was a buzz with surf lifesaving trials going on and everyone loving the new skate bowl. Showing the space activated and in its best light was the brief.
Featured last week on The Local Project - Robeson Architects Urban House...excerpt below;
The Urban House by Robeson Architects is a modern style home with a hint of Japanese style in Western Australia.
The client wanted to utilise the mixed-use zoning of the site by creating a commercial tenancy at street level to be leased by the owner but used as their own office in the future. Interiors were to be kept open and flexible, orientated to the northern aspect and pool.
Japanese influences are expressed through colour and texture use, along with matte finishes and deep colour accents. The home engages with its location at street level where the properties change from commercial to residential.

Being brought on board to photograph the Intercontinental Hotel in Perth was an amazing experience. Working closely with the team at Woods Bagot is always a pleasure. Anna Flanders on the styling and accessories selection did it again and we spent two days working the project and I was continually impressed at the design and local art used.

The meticulous design of the InterContinental Perth City Centre Hotel delivers a sense of place to its guests. Originally a 1970’s office block which was later converted into the Rydges Hotel in the 1990’s, one of the greatest architectural and interior design challenges was to to successfully deliver the design and operational requirements of a luxury brand within a tightly constrained building footprint.
Internally, the existing tower has been stripped to the base building condition and completely redesigned to accommodate new front-of-house and back-of-house facilities. The hotel now features 240 guest rooms (including a penthouse suite), three international restaurant and bar offerings on the ground floor, as well as lounges and terrace spaces throughout the hotel.
A sense of Perth was instilled into the design through locally commissioned art curated by Linton and Kay Galleries and a careful selection of materials that speak of the beach, bush and minerals of Western Australia with natural timbers and stone. The hotel will play a significant role in enriching the streetscape and pedestrian experience on the prominent corner of Hay and Kings Streets in Perth’s central business district with extended ground planes and podium terrace levels above.

Award winning Hillam Architects certainly made a bold statement on apartment living when they designed Aria.
Renowned in Perth for their opulent and innovative designs, the architects lived up to their reputation with these world-class apartments.
Perched in Swanbourne, Aria Luxury Apartments sit proud amongst lush landscaped gardens in its coastal locale.
It’s no mean feat designing a high-end complex for a 6552sqm site that not only reflects the high-end design aesthetic of its exclusive suburb, but also embraces the sweeping views to their fullest extent.
Yet exploring the architecture both inside and out, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were inside an exotic resort where no cent has been spared.
Each detail is meticulously thought out, from the contrast of sharp angles which have been warmed by feature timber to create a cohesive yet intriguing look, to the metallic gold anodized aluminium screens that instantly create interest from the outset.
Bespoke craftsmanship laces the building as do high-end finishes and a modern colour palette of white, black, greys and nature tones.
A clever U shape protects the communal pool and entertainment space from summer breezes, meaning its lucky residents can utilize the space all year round. Not to mention the private gym, dining room, residents only lounge, yoga room and wine cellar.
Hillam Architects have proved once again they are the masters when it comes designing luxurious, modern day living spaces.

This unique 170sqm home is a true representation of need versus want when it comes to living space.
The thoughtfully designed triangle shaped home took into careful consideration every inch of its challenging pocket of 180sqm land to ensure no space was wasted.
From the outset, the form is immediately alluring with its uniquely shaped façade, use of interesting materials and mural by local artist Robert Jenkins embellishing the boundary wall.
The home has become somewhat of a landmark in its locale of Mount Lawley, known for its dramatic design against a character cottage backdrop.
The current inhabitants are its architect Simone Robeson and husband, but it is currently up for grabs for a lucky buyer.
The buyer can expect a design which has embraced minimal, industrial elements with a luxurious finish.
There is burnished concrete to the floors, marble in the kitchen and dining and customised steel additions.
A wealth of glass has been set to draw as much natural light in, from the waterfall window over the stairs, to the projecting steel box on the street outlook.
Into the awkward pocket of space Simone has been able to fit two bedrooms, two bathrooms, large office and room for two cars.
The home received a commendation in the 2015 WA Architecture Awards and has been featured across countless media outlets. Most recently featured on Habitus Living
