The new Bath in the historic center of Samedan is situated directly on the back of the baroque church. Despite this prominent placement it leaves the leading role on the village square to the church.

The scale as well as the precisely chosen materials integrates the new building perfectly into the existing situation. At the same time the building maintains character and independence.
This project sensitively inserts new architecture into a former industrial warehouse building, located in the inner west of Sydney, for a new 80-place childcare centre.
The new interior architecture incorporates pop-up clerestory windows allowing sunshine to penetrate deep into the playrooms. The use of primary shapes and platonic forms in the building elements give opportunities for imagination and education. In collaboration with the landscape architect we integrated a series of naturally non-uniform and adventurous elevated spaces amongst prerequisite soft-fall surrounds. These provide stimulating play areas to challenge balance and promote risk evaluation that are fundamental for early childhood development.

A project for the renovation of ground floor premises with the minimum possible input of resources, and with very specific and exacting functional requirements, given the programme it hosts, a social services centre.
