We are delighted to have Paul’s expertise on flexibility in education design shared in Indesign #88. 

“Without a doubt, any design of a learning environment must adapt to the changing needs of new generations and have long term flexibility.”

Sustainability Strategies part 5

Sustainability is important to everyone at Reddog. We firmly believe that our environment is fragile and now is the time to solve some of sustainability challenges that face us all.

To help communicate how we can all make a difference, we have created (and continue to create) a series of articles introducing and discussing how sustainability can be achieved in architecture.

Part 5 of our series on sustainability strategies looks at concrete and brick as materials choices.

Sustainability in Action

CHAC D Block

Working in conjunction with the College’s masterplan, the new building is a high-profile location for the campus and forms a critical connection for the linear journey from Prep to Year 12.

NA House

This Brisbane residential project emerged from the optimistic approach of a young couple whose Fairfield home was severely damaged in the 2011 Queensland Floods. The owners were determined to find a greater opportunity in the renovation process than a generic raise and restore approach would afford them.

Welcome Shane!

Welcome to Reddog, Shane!

Shane is  passionate about creating architecture that instils human belonging through facilitating cognitive experiences such as emotions, senses, memories, introspection, and connection. 

Shane has graduated from a Bachelor of Architecture (Honours) from Queensland University of Technology and is presently completing his Masters. He attributes much of his love for architecture to his inquisitive and creative spirit. 

During his free time, you’ll find him either on a hike, working on an art project or looking up his next travel destination.

Reddog team photoshoot = much fun, mirth and merriment!

From twirling capes, to impromptu props and moments of madness, we had a lot of fun.

Thanks to Tempus Media for helping us with the photos.

Residential Care Facility | The Shoreline

Residential Care Facility at The Shoreline

The design choices for the Shoreline Residential Care Facility were very deliberate. Recognising the influence of Coffs Harbour, and meeting of the Great Dividing Range and the ocean, the interior design incorporates a combination of lighter timbers, textured stone and coloured fabrics. Transitioning blue hues and biophilic design principles create a feeling of calm, tranquility and home.

The residential rooms embrace humble and muted colours, finishes and textures creating a welcoming and homely atmosphere.

Connor Jones

Welcome Connor!

We are delighted to welcome Connor to Reddog!

Growing up in Brisbane has given Connor an appreciation of subtropical architecture. He believes it is important that architectural designs acknowledge our unique climate and ensuring every building enhances its context whilst improving human experience. 

Outside of work, Connor plays sport whenever he can – spending most of his Saturdays’ sweltering on the cricket field. He is also part of social netball and volleyball teams, where he has varying degrees of success. Travelling is also a large part of his life, he always is planning his next trip away.

We look forward to working with you Connor!

CHAC D Block 2022 Dulux Colour Awards Winner

Award Winner - CHAC D Block

2022 Dulux Colour Awards

Category: Commercial and Multi Residential Exterior

Citation:

“The new D Block at Cannon Hill Anglican College slots seamlessly into its campus location by balancing its bushland context with existing buildings. The role of colour in this educational facility cannot be understated; it was an integral part of the design process and a versatile device masterfully employed. White brickwork provides a canvas for the play of leaf shadows from the surrounding canopy; individual, yet cohesive palettes demarcate classrooms; and, colour-distinct exits and entry points aid navigation throughout the spaces. In awarding this project, we applaud the balance the architects struck when specifying colour to simultaneously create cohesion and distinction.”
