What we've been up to...
As we continue to work with many of our clients and consultants remotely given current social distancing recommendations, our projects have been progressing with minimal disruption. While we're preparing several new projects to be submitted to Council for approval, construction continues on site for our ZZ Top House, and Welcome to the Jungle House has been shortlisted for a few more awards!
Welcome to the Jungle House has also been shortlisted for a2020 INDE Awardin two categories; 'The Influencer', and 'The Building', up against some very impressive Australian Architectural projects from 2019.
Thanks to a carefully planned planting schedule and live weather-smart irrigation, the vegetable harvest never stops from Welcome to the Jungle House's rooftop garden. Here's some of the latest goods, all home grown from scratch:
At ZZ Top House, the internal fit-out has started to materialise; flooring is being installed, joinery has been measured up, light fixtures are being fitted and installed and the project is generally moving ahead at full speed. The clients are very excited with the progress and are looking forward to moving into their new home later this year!
