We have been working on a new project for some time, and it is now the final push towards the first client presentation.
So to give our model maker a hand (and of course to ensure the model is addressing what needs to be expressed correctly), we visited to help planting some trees on the model as it is quite a densely vegetated site…
More updates later.. wish us luck!
Since we have moved office, it has taken a slight detour with the post office, and finally arrived at our new office.
Thank you Phin (who worked with us in 2012) for always thinking of us, we miss you too.
Phin was involved in:
For the ongoing POKOLBIN HOUSE, we have been familiarising ourselves with the sensitivities of the site – what that essentially means is, to “re-learn” what nature is.
Yes we have to design with solar access, overshadowing, wind direction, view corridor… in mind, especially in the city context where nature is scarce.
Nature is something delicate, needing to be treated with care, for sure.
But nature takes on a different meaning when it is all-encompassing on a majestic scale.
It dwarfs everything else; makes one truly feel, with all senses, the meaning of “Mother Nature”.
It is something not to be messed with.
Every change in the nature’s expression becomes magnified.
The fruits captured the past year – rain, sun, and human effort.
Again the beauty of nature shows in the honesty of the fruit.
We hand picked about 250kg, which if fermentation goes well, will come to roughly 200 bottles of wine with time.
Really looking forward.
Crazy summer weather.
Thanks TOM FERGUSON and we look forward to the photos.
