Finalist

Peoples Choice Award

Broken Hill Solar Farm

Viewing Platform Competition 2017

 

This structure overlooks the Broken Hill solar farm and the Australian desert landscape. It is a constructed representation of an optimistic turn toward the future, celebrating new relationships between landscape and technology. It consists of 2 basic built forms – an artificial mound of earth forming a ramp, and a suspended silver ring that shades the viewing area.

The design superimposes 2 landscape conditions; one, an expansive panorama of the Broken Hill solar farm and the Australian desert, and two, a small introspective garden planted with native desert palms and flowers. These two ‘sites’ contrast each other.

The geographic experience of the Australian desert is amplified, encouraging perception in the viewer, jolting them into a new awareness of the landscape and its production. The sublime technological scale of the solar farm is augmented by the intimacy of the garden.

//  SEDDON HOUSE

 

2016

 

 

//

The Seddon House transformed what was a disused car park on a flood zone into an compact family home...

 

Designed for 3 generations of the one family, the project emphasises the roof as a unifying architectural element....

 

It produces energy via 5.83 kW solar system grid connect... and is heated and cooled via passive technology...

 

The second floor is tucked into the roof line so the building remains modest amongst its neighbours...

Light and temperature is controlled by an innovative roofing system...

 

A structural system of raking rafters direct a rhythm around the building...

 

Rain water is recycled via a system of landscaped ground gutters...

//

OSK Architects travelled to Berlin to build a temporary pavilion, presenting projects focused on how local communities can adapt to the ever transforming city...

 

The structure transformed throughout five days of its existence to accommodate a series of installations, performances and workshops...

 

Located in a public park in the neighbourhood of Moabit, the pavilion held a series of nine events in which OSK Architects invited international artists and curators to present work engaged in the idea of "the city".

//    FUTURE PROJECTS

//

 

 

OSK Architects are currently developing a design for a prototypical coastal house...

 

The design maximises views and connections to its coastal context...

 

And takes advantage of its geographic location via solar and geothermal heat exchange technology... 

 

Sign up to our journal to hear more on the project and its design development...
