My Secret Melbourne

The House in the Sky sculpture hits a cord with Comedian Lawrence Mooney.  The Age’s Mary O’Brien ask’s “What artwork has best captured your sense of the city?

LM  The House in the Sky sculpture on the Western Ring Road is a beautiful work. I like the ingenuity of the artist who used that as a motif for Melbourne. I love Howard Arkley’s work on suburbia exteriors and when I lived bayside I got into Clarice Beckett and that morning and dusky light that she used to paint. Melbourne is a city in the middle of a huge suburban sprawl

We are excited to see the finishing trades working hard.  The northern decks are taking form.  Joinery is being installed and Paul has pre-oiled all the bushfire resistance timber deck prior to installation.

Timeless beauty still outperforming

In today’s media saturated environment, flooded with green wash, it’s not easy for clients to find genuinely green/eco design.  We are mindful of this dilemma.  At EME we enjoy the process of exploring the best solution for each site and each client, seeking out an intrinsically sustainable design.   Essential to our philosophy is to design spaces that work and continually delight the occupants.  Architecture is for people.  And good architecture stands the test of time.  It rises above fads and fashion.  And equally important, it evolves with time.  Great design is adaptable, efficient and beautiful – like nature itself.

On this note, we thought it worth while having a look back at our Wrights Terrace home that is now more than 10 years old.  It has certainly aged gracefully.  And its green credentials remain strong -, inverse masonry construction, passive design, cool-gardi water feature, local, salvage and recycled timber, nature/organic low voc oil finishes, low energy lighting, double glazed timber window,  water saving fittings, water harvesting ..etc.  This home has massively reduced energy and water consumption, leading by example.  And is still as beautiful as ever.

MILDURA ECO LIVING CENTRE OPENING

The much anticipated MELC ribbon cutting ceremony was held on the weekend. More than 200 Mildura residents turned up for a beautiful sunny winters day of celebrations. Despite a chill in the air the building was deliciously warm and stayed comfortable despite the doors being left open throughout the day as visitors went in and out. EME joined in the planting of Australian natives around the building to provide shade for future hot Mildura Summers. There was a general atmosphere of delight and achievement among young and old.
