    HASSELL + SO-IL

    Adelaide Contemporary Art Gallery, 2018, 1:200

    Hassell and So-Il’s response to the brief for the Adelaide Contemporary Art Gallery competition showed a sensitivity to light and porosity. The physical model was used as a tool to highlight the effects of a mesh facade interacting with the multipurpose gallery spaces within. A uniform palette of the building in all-white, emphasised the effects of dappling natural light landing within the scheme, which drew from the team’s inspiration of light interactions found within nature. This was done by literally opening up the model in two halves to create a powerful reveal of the section slices of the building within and the greenery surrounding it.

  • WOODS BAGOT

    WOODS BAGOT

    8 Phillip St, 2017, 1:250 and 1:1000

    The marketing model for Phillip St by Woods Bagot , Coronation property and Frost Collective consisted of a 1:1000 scale table top and a 1:250 display model. The design asked for a large CNC milled table to carve out a map of the Parramatta Precinct. This was to act as a base for a projected animation which sat above highlighting key amenity in the area for prospective purchasers. The interactive display assisted the public in communicating how the design related to the greater neighbourhood and greater Sydney region. The model of the tower designed by Woods Bagot showed the detail of the building design up-close focusing on golden facade elements, soffits and heritage relationships to Parramatta’s historic architecture. The model proved to be a pivotal asset to the sales campaign which sold out with $110 million achieved in the first few hours of sale.

    Indigo Slam, 2018, 1:100

    A model designed to recreate Smart Design’s iconic Indigo Slam for a traveling presentation for the Jam Factory’s exhibition on Concrete. The model of this private residence showed a side not accessible to the public. The elevation of the model allowed visitors a viewing point into the architecture, showcasing the effect of the light play coming from the iconic facade. The recognizable curvature and form of the design was captured accurately using flexible birch-wood. The use of this timber created a crisp uniformity to the model’s palette to reflect the simplicity of the material mastery of concrete that we can see in the built work today.

    Rawson Road, 2019, 1:200

    Monochrome in it’s materiality, the purpose of this model was to seek residential development approval through Woollahra Council. Though many council DA models have different requirements, this one asked for an all-white aesthetic to blend the existing context with the proposed development to aid in public viewing and commenting as part of the development process. The Greenery softened any additions to highlight how the shrubbery would add to the neighboring streetscape and provide screening and privacy.

    Phoenix Gallery, 2016, 1:20

    This process model for Durbach Block Jaggers was one of a series of prototypes for a multi-use performance space as part of the Phoenix Gallery in association with John Wardle Architects. At a scale of 1:20 the model acted as a vista for the experience of the proposed architecture, allowing the designers to literally get their heads inside the vaulted design and experience the curvature of the interior atrium. The plywood version involved multiple laminates of plywood, which were then CNC milled separately and glued back together to create the multitude of curved experiences in the building. A plaster and foam version was also made, allowing easy reassembly and disassembly with which the architects could test the color finishes of the concave architecture.

    Atlassian Tower, 2019, 1:500

    This competition model was part of Australia’s BVN and New York based Shop Architects winning proposal for the new Atlassian headquarters in Central Sydney. At 1:500 scale, the model had the challenge of conveying a diagrid structural system, cross laminated timber beams and facade patterning at a very small scale. The model also needed to be a removable component within an existing council model for a competition jury to judge. It was crafted with stacked acrylics, CNC milled timber to represent the cross laminated timber and varying clear and white acrylics and 3D printed components. Greenery was speckled throughout the model to showcase the sky gardens throughout the tower’s design.

    New Parramatta Pool Competition, 2018, 1:500

    This competition model for the new Parramatta Aquatic Leisure Centre was part of a winning competition entry by Andrew Burges, Grimshaw and McGregor Coxall. The challenge of the model was conveying the above ground, below ground and interior experience of a multi-programmed facility. The team decided to use solid timber to create a model that appears to be fully integrated in the surrounding context. By carving out the timber site and milling additions, the team was able to create an interactive experience for the jury. Removing layers of seemingly solid wood to reveal the magic of the spaces within.

    Ian Potter National Gallery, 2016, 1:200

    This physical model was part of the winning entry for Chrofi’s proposal for the Ian Potter National Gallery design competition. Solid timber mahogany was used for the majority of the model to draw attention to the contrast of the natural topography and the massive cubic form that appears to hover overhead. Routed passages surrounded the frosted resin box to show the changing levels with which the design team responded to the brief. A forest of natural trees were peppered throughout to convey the botanical garden in which the simple beauty of the architects design could stand out.

    Lune De Sang, 2014, 1:100

    The Lune de Sang Pavilion model aimed to reflect the client’s desire to pronounce the architecture’s relationship within the existing landscape. Curved sculptural retaining walls were made by precise milling from a laminated solid timber block. These revealed the natural grain of the timber in elevation and reaffirmed this key concept of the architecture. Hand modeled interiors and furniture inhabited the interior to give it scale and life. Structural details and roof designs were expressed utilizing laser cutting and hand crafted model making techniques.

    Mandaue Site, 2014, 1:1000

    Make models was commissioned to produce a travel model that served to assist the team and client in understanding the project site and its immediate context and topography. The model dimensions are designed to neatly fit within an A3 sized sheet for the purpose of portability, working in conjunction with sketches over the working table. CNC milled timber was adopted to pick up the subtle changes in the topography at the scale of 1:5000. In contrast white acrylic blocks were chosen to clearly indicate the existing building’s mass and scale. A removable semitransparent acrylic sheet was installed to articulate the project site and can be replaced for new iterations as the design develops.

    Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

    This 1:100 curved marketing model was designed to sit in a display suite for prospective buyers in St. Kilda Melbourne. The design by KPDO was for a tower of 252 apartments and amenities. The finishes of the architecture were all-white, which the model reflected. However it was brought to life through illuminating a central lighting core. The lighting allowed for dusk and sunset colours to permeate throughout the floors of the model and aligned with the colour scheme of the display suite surrounds.

The model mixed the structural expression of architectural elements with the complicated curvature of a towered form to create a sculptural element worthy of attention.

    Facade Prototype, 2017, Undisclosed.

    Tzannes commissioned a 1:100 massing model in CNC milled foam. The model was split into several parts due to it’s size then laminated back together. The massing model tested the formal geometry of the proposal at a scale with which the viewer could interact with the object itself. The white nature of the foam massing allowed for an easier definition of shadows which articulated the facade.

    Western Sydney recently received a wonderful new stadium thanks to the brilliant expertise of Populous. This model was created for the design team in anticipation for construction to commence and finish. It used plastic for the detailed structural elements and modelled all the rows of seating within the stadium to give a viewer a real sense of occupation in the soon-to-be-completed stadium. There were multiple vantage points through which an observer could poke their eye through to enter the miniautreversion of the stadium.

    Tonkin Zulaikha Greer‘s competition entry for the Southern Highlands Botanical gardens was described by the jury as “a romantic and striking building” which proposed a “curated series of layered visitor journeys.” The building’s design of curved stone walls, with timber ceilings was represented by mixed tone timbers. This competition used solid American Walnut to stand out from the context and intricate CNC milling to the topography to define landscape spaces of the proposal.

    CHROFI’s bid for green square required a model that could convey the relationship of aquatic spaces through a multitude of levels. The experiential model started with a timber top which signified the subtlety of their proposal in keeping the vastness of a green field, it was then removed to showcase the layer below, a series of swimming pools and athletic facilities as well as back of house services. This second layer was also removable to show more spaces below. The model therefore served as a choreographed experience of the architecture.

    This presentation model for Eoaghan Lewis Architects was subtle yet powerful in the story it conveyed. The scheme was one of preservation and inspiration. 24 historic cottages by a coastal beach site in California were proposed to be kept and used as a contextual force in the design of condominums which were positioned to the rear. The model’s use of a timber aesthetic blends these contextual forces together to communicate this story in a clear and concise fashion whilst also appealing to the pitched roof iconography of the proposal.

    The TGL model needed to convey the new artery that connects the ultimo district to darling quarter. A CNC routed topography in white foam works with hand-modelled, white foam buildings. Overall the length of the model covered a good mix of new additions to the urban fabric that showcased the variety of geometry and complexity in the area. This included the highly anticipated Frank Gehry design, the Dr Chau Chak Wing, Ian Thorpe Aquatic Center by Harry Siedler. In total, the model spanned 2.4m, easily segmented into parts for transportation.

    Two models for a health precinct captured in two different scales. The first model measured no larger than an A4. It was lightweight, portable and made from solid mixed timbers with incorporated lighting at a scale of 1:1000. Solid balls of timber were used as trees, incorporated into the model and aided in the blending of the scheme within the context. A 1:100 sectional model accompanied it, showing the team’s thought process from the scale of the precinct down to the detail scale of the facade system.
