Award Winning Architect
BLOXAS was established by Anthony Clarke in 2010, and is an exploration into the fundamentals of multi-disciplinary design. The studio works on a range of projects including residential, public and commercial, along with national and international design competitions. Every BLOXAS project endeavours to create a unique, and site-specific landscape inspired sustainable piece of architecture. BLOXAS work collaboratively with their clients, resulting in a design that embraces ambitions and ideals in the most innovative and investigative architectural expression possible. Various means of visual communication are explored to investigate the site, client’s ideals and the overall design potentials, offering a tangible engagement throughout the design and development process. BLOXAS draws upon extensive cultural experience from years spent working with Australian architecture firms including FJMT and Terroir, along with international offices including Jean Nouvel in Paris, and Shigeru Ban in Tokyo. The studio’s award winning portfolio is fast becoming “architecture people talk about”, and is well documented, featuring in industry magazines, local newspapers, and many online international publications. In 2012, BLOXAS was named in Wallpaper* Magazine’s Architects Directory, as one of the world’s top 20 emerging practices. The studio actively pursues design exploration through Anthony’s position at Monash University as a Teaching Associate, and involvement in Melbourne’s New Architect Program (NAM). BLOXAS believe architecture is more than just built form. It is more than just an object in the landscape. Architecture is an expression of feelings, emotions and sensory experiences discovered through human interaction.
The Profile House
The Profile House offers an evocative tribute to the defined industrial typology of Brunswick East, in Melbourne’s inner north. Simple planning creates clean, elegant and sculptural internal living spaces. Seeking an addition to their typically dark Californian Bungalow, the clients emphasized the sustainable performance of their future home. Accordingly, they described a space with a feeling of openness, lightness, and visual continuity, connecting their home and landscape.
Engawa House in North Fitzroy
Melbourne’s inner-north has a distinct European feel of community living. Small houses compel people towards local parks and curbside gardens, blurring the threshold between public and private. The Engawa House in North Fitzroy, embraces this atmosphere, as the dynamic and historical patchwork of the surrounding context becomes part of each living space. A full facing northern wing, mixing a combination of single and double storey forms, attaches itself to the front rooms of the existing house. The simple orientation takes advantage of the full range of views from the mezzanine, whilst being sympathetic to it’s elevational context. The living, dining and bedroom/ensuite skirt a large and long courtyard garden, maximizing sustainable performance, and offering northern light into each new program.
Grange road kinder
This project was part of the Victoria state government’s 2010-11 early childhood development initiative, and was completed in March 2012. The approach to learning at the Grange Road Kindergarten is one of discovery through play. The educational environment utilizes internal and external spaces, so the design created unrestricted connection between the playground and the classroom. This sentiment continues throughout the new design enabling physical and visual connection to the external spaces. The design encompasses transitional decking and ramp, a more pronounced entry and lobby, an increase in square meterage through the re-working of the classroom, and utilization of interstitial spaces.
This project adds a new light and bright living quarters to a late 1930?s, early 1940?s Art-Deco home in Melbourne’s East. Replacing an existing dark 1980?s addition, this modern design forms a new connection between the original dwelling, a new living / informal dining area, and the existing developed garden. Adopting existing geometries of the site, the new form follows the original roof line along the western edge of the property. This roof shape allows natural light into the new bedrooms and powder room, hidden behind the primary joinery unit and ‘spine’ of the project. This strategy allows for the design to accommodate multiple guests without losing a sense of modesty when the clients are alone.
dual court house
The project, an extension of a typical three bedroom 70s house, investigates the simplicity of light in form, colour, and detail. The design features a new main bedroom with floor to ceiling windows, bathroom, walk-in-robe, hallway joinery and a timber deck to the north. These graft themselves to the eastern elevation of the existing house, offering renewed privacy and natural light to the clients, a family of five. The plan pulls back to create two private courtyards, one seemingly internal, featuring Japanese Maple trees. The extension leads users to double back twice, revealing both sides of the entrance wall, before entering the main bedroom space which offers views down the valley to the site’s north-west.
