THE QUINLAN GROUP NEWS
Our Southport Plaza project officially opened on December 15th with the client throwing a cocktail party on the main terrace. The project has been photographed by Adrian Lambert from Acorn photography and we're really pleased with the result. The bulk of the images are now on the website under projects - southport plaza. The client has elected to retain the entire building in their investment portfolio, rather than selling of the strata…
One of our earliest residential alterations and additions projects has finally been completed after nearly six years! After a rapid development application process, the client has worked their way through a stage development process with little involvement from our end. The result is a succesful blend of old and new. view project
A large cliff top freestanding home is currently under development in the office for a returning client. This is the second home we have been involved in designing for Mr. and Mrs. Hush and we're really happy that they enjoyed the process so much first time around that they've decided to involve us again.
Another joint venture project between The Quinlan Group and Darryl Gordon Design has been featured in the latest issue of Inside Out magazine. This project is far more contemporary and minimal than our last feature project, but at the same time has a richer materialirty and arguably an even higher standard of finish. read article
Cameron Smith from Parkzip has recently finished constructing a little jewellery box for us in the Connaught Apartment building at the end of Hyde Park. This is our second apartment in the building and another JV project with our usual partners in crime. These images were shot yesterday by staff using a standard SLR and it look good enough already - we're really looking forward to seeing this professionally photographed with one of Darryl's…
Another substantial freestanding house project designed by The Quinlan Group is nearing completion in Castlecrag. Nestled at the end of Edinburgh Road with expansive views of Middle Harbour, the site stays true to the modernist ideologies of the original building that occupied the site. The building is scheduled for completion in late June / early July -we'll be sure to post more photos then
Yet another large free standing housing project has gone to site in Northbridge. This project also sees us teaming up again with Cameron Smith from Parkzip and will be the eleventh The Quinlan Group designed project he has built for us, with several more to come over the next eighteen months. The timber and steel framing is nearing competion and you can already make out the form of the finished building.
Here's some evidence that good design adds a lot more value than just its aesthetic and environmental contributions. Despite only reaching practical completion last week, the owner of this free stading home in Maroubra has already had substantial offers made on the house by random passers by. As always, we have to thank an enlightened client and builder for carrying through the concept.
This quarter has seen the development of several new residential alterations and additions projects including the McGree Residence in Kensington, the Fish Residence in Clovelley and the Warwicker Residence in Lewisham. We've also been working on a rear extension to the Quinlan Residence - our very first project, and the traditional starting point of most architectural practicves (the parents house.) The McGree residence shows a natural…
Designed around the concept of creating a second level that was literally invisible from the street, this two storey extension in Bondi Junction has finally been completed by Trico Construction. The finished building is a meticulously detailed and beautifully finished jewellery box that belies its apparently conservative street presence.
Early last month The Quinlan Group reached a significant landmark with a return client commissioning us to undertake our 150th project. Thanks must go out to all our clients who have helped us reach this milestone. Some of the more notable commissions we have worked on in that time include Southport Plaza in Perth, the Guangzhou Masterplan in China and the Governor General’s personal residence. We’ve been published in at least 10 different…
Our recent commission for an exciting new type of resort development has allowed us to fully utilise our background in large scale mixed use infrastructure and masterplanning projects. Including hotel and villa accommodation, function rooms and conference facilities, the masterplan also has embedded within it a new type of housing product that we have been developing for the last two years with David Donaldson from Trade Fusion.
The recovery in the general market has seen increased workflow in the office, so we’ve had to restock and we’re now back to a full contingent of staff. Say hello to Elisa and Jarek, our two latest recruits. Jarek has joined us from Heidelberg via. Dublin and Elisa has come from Santa Giustina In Colle via. Castelfranco Veneto. Both bring a wealth of knowledge and experience from overseas and have adapted well to both the culture of…
