HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON!

December 23, 2011

A special lunch, in a special place, with special people – the exceptional TP team, dedicated to another year of excellence in design, and we couldn’t think of a more fitting location for our end of year party than inside one of our projects-in-motion.

It’s been a year of the highest quality and we’re very much looking forward to all that 2012 has to bring. But before we welcome the new year, we’d like to thank you (our devoted blogees) for tuning-in and wish you all a safe and merry festive season with the ones you love.

BRIDGE ROOM NAMED MOST ELEGANT NEW RESTAURANT 2011

December 22, 2011

We’re were very happy to see The Bridge Room (Sydney) named as Most Elegant New Restaurant 2011 in the Sunday Telegraph on the weekend (view article online) and listed in The Australian’s ‘Best Restaurants of 2011’ feature (here). It was a thrill to design the space for such a talented culinary couple (Chef Ross Lusted and his wife Sunny) and the accolades are well-deserved (including the latest review by Terry Durack of SMH, awarding the restaurant a 16/20 here). If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of dining there yet we’d recommend you do so very soon!

BEN BUCKLER DEVELOPMENT – 105 RAMSGATE AV, BONDI

December 13, 2011

Some images of a a very exciting project, commencing on site in 2012 on the iconic Ben Buckler headland – the eastern most tip of Sydney’s world famous Bondi beach. There are precious few spots in Bondi where one can experience the full diversity of the area without being swallowed up by it, and this spot is definitely one of them, offering a front row seat to all the ever-changing sights and sounds from a position of complete privacy and isolation for its occupants. The design takes its cue from the surrounding inter-war apartment buildings, which are always fantastic to work with. The layered approach of punched openings in solid walls maximises internal space and allows for great design freedom within. Building to be completed in 2013.

TOBIAS PARTNERS IN AUS/NZ INTERIORS – A BOOK BY MITCHELL OAKLEY SMITH

December 2, 2011

It’s always a pleasure to be involved in high-quality projects that give our work life beyond what we create for our clients, and this was certainly the case with the recently released ‘INTERIORS Australia and New Zealand’ by Mitchell Oakley Smith. We think he’s done a fantastic job of collating the diversity of practices in Australia and NZ (there’s an honesty and simplicity to a lot of the work in the book, which is probably why it works so well) and it’s great to see a collection of antipodean design that can mix it with the best of them internationally. Overall, a beautifully presented publication.
