The future is prefabricated

Prefabricated construction is in its infancy but with increasing demand on tradition construction and speed and the sustainability benefits of prefabrication, could this new manufacturing industry change the way Australia builds?

james bond house cebu

The Concept Design for the James Bond House was originally designed in Oct 2014. The brief was an architects dream come true. Unlimited budget, challenging sloping site in Cebu, young edgy and stylish clients with the desire to create a modern, minimalist box for their home. The resulting design is in stark contrast to the Spanish villa vernacular of the Cebu Hills area but sensitive to the topography of the land and the environment. From the projects onset, the clients were on-board with our vision, excited by the design and loved the architectural style that we were proposing. It made you feel pretty damn good about being an architect and thoroughly enjoying the collaborative Design Process. Typically, this kind of smooth design process, just doesn’t happen. But sometimes dreams don’t fully come true and need a little bit of Value Management. Not a bad thing in the scheme of things but essential to turning the vision into reality.

We were very happy to hear this week the project is forging ahead and following review of the local architects drawings pleased to see the Design Intent was respected in the modifications to the Schematic Design.

Looking forward to seeing this one progress.

what does a james bond house look like?

Modern, clean lines. Minimalist detailing with huge concrete cantilevers. A large entertainment deck, with a sleek wet edge pool for the parties. Glass and Steel. Walls that fold away, slide and pivot. Framed views and vistas. Exaggerated vertical spaces, fast cars and opulence.

This is a fun job!
