The Local Project celebrates extraordinary design to an inspired community.

Albert Park Extension by Modscape - A Testament to Minimalist Housing

With minimalist charm, the Albert Park extension by Modscape highlights the architectural possibilities of prefabricated construction, creating a tranquil retreat for its inhabitants. Modscape was brought on board to reinvent the original ageing Victorian-era house and its dated, clunky extension, located in the Melbourne suburb of Albert Park. The client’s brief was to provide a home that was a quiet, relaxing place to come return to, away from the busy, frantic pace of the surrounding city.

Red Zephyr Blue House by CAPA Architects - Sustainable Home Design

From a conceptual point of view, the architects wanted the whole project to integrate both architecture and landscape, in everything from the perspective on the street to elements throughout the house. Having native and endemic flora and fauna was essential to the clients, and inspired the name of the house, “Red Zephyr Blue”, from the red and blue dragonflies that appeared during the build.
