ARCHITECTURAL PROJECTS

2015

The Exploding! Shed House; David Weir Architects
Contract documentation & administration on a 95 square metre, one bedroom home + studio for a wonderful client. Prefabricated steel-frame adorned with matte black weatherboard, timber-framed doors & windows, and sheep shed-style roof cladding direct from the United Kingdom.

House Roux; David Weir Architects
Contract documentation & administration for a new family home in Wembley Downs. A small battle-axe site, although engulfed with a large retaining wall along two boundaries, remains hidden amongst the towering Eucalyptus trees. Timber-framed with enough room for a family of four plus guests, with plenty of room left over to live within.

UWA Student Guild Tavern; UWA Student Guild
Project Champion of the UWA Student Guild Tavern Redevelopment Project. Delivered from the winning design scheme from the competition of the same name. Main liaison between the Guild, the winning student team consisting of Xue Bai, Stephanie Banaszak, Cassandra Ho and Stephanie Trang, and supervising architect Sophie Giles.

2013

Dave's Cans on the Rooftop at MANY 6160; David Weir Architects
A wonderful summer experiment on the rooftop of the unused Old Myer Building in Fremantle. Involved in all stages, from conceptual design to project delivery - and even getting down and dirty with hammering, painting and landscaping throughout construction. In the end, it was worth all the hard work when it meant drinking an ice cold beer with mates while playing rooftop cricket in the middle of Fremantle.
