And so we come to the last inside for 2017 and what a bumper issue it is with a record 180 pages.

Curated by leading designer, collector and art dealer Axel Vervoordt and Daniela Ferretti, director of the Palazzo Fortuny, Intuition at Palazzo Fortuny marks the last in a remarkable series of six exhibitions. Each of the series rigorously combines historic, modern and contemporary art, artefacts and objects in the exceptional context of a gothic Venetian palazzo. Intuition is the ability to acquire knowledge without proof, evidence or conscious reasoning – a feeling that guides a person to act without understanding, instinct. The viewer is encouraged to navigate the exhibition throughout the multilevel Palazzo, reflecting on concepts of philosophy, aesthetics, art history, architecture and scientific research, which explore geographies, cultures and generations. Inside the decadent residence-turned-museum of Mariano and Henriette Fortuny, Intuition is curated alongside their personal collection of tapestries, refined antiques and Wunderkammer…

office of information technology management and support

When Charles Darwin University’s Office of Information Technology Management and Support (ITMS) moved into an old trades building on the Casuarina campus in Darwin, the staff were presented with an opportunity to re-engineer not only their work location, but also their corporate culture. The re-imagined space received the George Chaloupka Award for Interior Architecture, presented at the Australian Institute of Architects 2017 Northern Territory Architecture Awards in Darwin. Charles Darwin University’s chief information officer and director Pat Gould had a challenge ahead of him that included moving his team of almost 60 into an 880-square metre ‘big shed’ and build a productive workspace, as well as respond to the disruptive changes within the IT industry. “We needed to move away from the traditional view of IT workers and become business analysts who were…

kingsville remodel

Richard King Design was engaged to design a remodel of a house situated in Kingsville. The project, a dilapidated Federation worker’s cottage with a 1990s lean-to, was extensively demolished and extended into a two-level contemporary house that grew the spatial footprint from 85 square metres to 185 square metres. The remodel was accomplished within a two-year time-frame from concept to completion. To reference the building’s original architectural character, the principal of the practice, Richard King, extended the existing gable end roofline through to the rear, and the generous roof height and proportions were utilised to include a mezzanine level. The house has a mix of private, social and workspaces, with the front portion of the house retained as bedroom and adult living space. A central spine corridor connects the older section…

goodstart early learning

Gray Puksand has designed a 207-place childcare centre for Goodstart Early Learning in Adelaide Street, Brisbane. As an experienced childcare provider, Goodstart’s requirements for its latest centre were extensive and when the opportunity arose to secure an entire floor of the old Broadway on the Mall building, directly above H&M, it jumped at the opportunity, despite the limitations of the existing building. Dealing with a Heritage-listed façade, existing ground floor tenancy and the lack of outdoor space, there were several challenges for the designers that required a collaborative approach. “Our team investigated the breakdown of age groups and the size of the rooms within the space,” explains Kevin Miles, Brisbane managing partner at Gray Puksand. “However, the space is unique and required some creative thinking.” In its former life as a city mall,…
