Bow House, Edwards Moore

8.7.2015

The considered affinity between the strong lines and angles of Bow House is a fine example of Edwards Moore and their ability to produce a project of absolute resolution. Located in the humming inner Melbourne suburb of Richmond, the site finds itself where a single story brick cottage once lay.

The brief was to forge a modest 3 bedroom family house for an active young family, providing them with increased living and kitchen spaces, connectivity and maximising available natural light.

An imminent apartment development to the northern boundary meant limiting access to any natural light from the north side. Edwards Moore’s inherent capacity to ‘think outside the box’ saw them embrace it by building a tall wall set at the height of house’s eventual neighbour. The wall wraps around and drops expressively giving the house its signature bow shape.

Echoing the bow’s contour, the clean angles of the alabaster raked ceilings called for illumination that could establish a customised dialogue with its environment.

The elimination of internal walls throughout the space was to further Edwards Moore’s vision to convey continuity between zones of the home. The vast pitched ceilings and the bold slices of varied floors untraditionally define the ‘rooms’ of Bow House.

The services are neatly integrated down the spine of the north wall. The clever use of operable walls and multi-functional joinery allows for change as the family and their needs begin to develop and grow. Maintaining the tidy aesthetic, Edwards Moore used a combination of KLUS profile to unify the interior.

Delta Light: Reo Family Evolution

20.5.2015

The Reo Evolution… The Reo family one of Delta Light’s classic series has been expanded in the new Lighting Bible 11, with the addition of both the Mini Reo and Grand Reo. These new additions mean that this family of LED recessed down-lighters can now provide a wider spectrum of recessed LED solutions where a range of lumen outputs are required but where a uniform design aesthetic is to be achieved.

The smaller addition to the family is the Mini Reo (fixed), Mini Reo OK (adjustable) and Mini Reo X (IP), coming in 2700K, 3000K as standard, or 4000K on request, CRI > 80, all black or all white finish, and gold (Mini Reo) with optical accessory options for the non IP versions.

The Classic Reo remains unchanged with all the classic versions still available, however, there has been the exciting addition of Soft Dim. Soft Dim is a new LED technology which when dimmed down becomes warmer in colour temperature exactly like a Halogen Lamp ranging from 2700K-1800K. Combined with the REO’s performance, detailed aesthetics it truly does make the perfect design choice as a “true halogen replacement”.

The Grand Reo as the name suggests is the bigger addition to the family and with an aperture of ø120 (fixed) and lumen outputs of up to 2592lm this is a commercial sized downlight. Coming in both a fixed (Grand Reo) and adjustable (Grand Reo OK) version, it is available in 2700K, 3000K as standard with 4000K on request. CRI > 80 and > 90 as standard with CRI > 97 on request. A choice of an all black or white finish, optional to that, a contrast of white trim and black baffle. Optical accessories available for both versions.

“The Reo collection of LED recessed down-lighters is not only a complete solution but with the smooth rounded style and articulate detail, it’s a collection that compliments the most refined architectural spaces”.

Delta Light: no 57 Boutique Cafe Abu Dhabi

19.5.2015

The mysterious invitation-only supper club; The Dinner Club by No.57 , has now finally opened its first permanent space in Abu Dhabi, designed by Dubai-based studio Anarchitect. Rather than replicating the aura of exclusivity and secrecy of the previous pop-up dinners, instead the architects chose to create a new social and culinary experience that still retains the dynamic, creativity and sense of unexpectedness of the overall project.

A simple and refined palette of materials has been used throughout, combining Carrara marble, oak wood, concrete and black-powdered metal. The new boutique café also has a Secret Dining Room hidden in its heart for the purposes of hosting temporary dinners and other events.
