Sustainability Strategies Part 4

Resilience is part 4 in our series on sustainability strategies.

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.

Sustainability in action

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.

CHAC D Block

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.”

Commendation for Winship Shed

Brisbane Regional Awards (AIA – Queensland)

Category: Residential Architecture – New

Winner Type: Commendation

Citation:

A modest budget, which set the driving parameters for this dwelling, has not been to its detriment with an entry sequence and set of spaces that are both impactful and appropriate. Living spaces are playfully tall and well ventilated, while a raised floor threshold to the bedrooms sets up the clear spatial hierarchy.  The dark exterior shell provides a sense of wonder of what will be revealed inside and contrasts well with the light and bright internal spaces.  The change and simplicity of materials and colour from entry, to living and bedrooms reinforces the planning parti and gently assists with a sense of simplicity, comfort, and ease.

Welcome Lilly!

Welcome Lilly!

Lilly, welcome to the Reddog family!

With a strong belief in architecture’s role in building the social and cultural fabric of our cities, Lilly is passionate about climate responsive projects.

For Lilly, one of her most memorable experiences was volunteering in Nepal with Architects Without Frontiers, where she worked with local stonemasons to help rebuild a mothers’ group community hall in a remote village which had been severely damaged in the 2015 earthquake. 

We are looking forward to working with you Lilly!
