As a not for profit organisation, run predominately by a group of committed volunteers, the AAA depends on the support of our members and the wider community of design enthusiasts to meet our operational costs for continuing to open the doors on architecture.

We are passionate about promoting and educating people about the value of architecture and design. We believe that the more you know and appreciate about design, the greater your say in the way our environment is shaped for the better.

This Month At Home Visits Darlington

1909 b0

This month At Home visits 'Welcome to the Jungle House', an inner city residence recently shortlisted for the 2019 World Architecture Festival.

Situated in Darlington, an inner-city heritage conservation area typified by late Victorian row terrace housing and post-industrial warehouse conversions, the home was designed to celebrate the Sydney climate and push the boundaries of sustainable living.

Meet the architect Clinton Cole, Managing Director of CPlusC Architectural Workshop and learn about how the home was designed, as you explore its interiors and exteriors.

The Jungle House story begins with the purchase of a two-storey shop top house in disrepair and close to collapse, occupying a 90sqm triangular site.

The original spackled rendered masonry façade had cultural and streetscape significance to the local heritage conservation area and its necessary reconstruction was managed under strict heritage controls.

A black photovoltaic panel array signals the new addition to the original northern façade, harnessing sunlight throughout the day, acting as a billboard for the sustainability attributes of the architecture and starkly contrasting the original rendered heritage facade.

Design Statement exerpt by Clinton Cole, director of CplusC Architectural Workshop, "Le Corbusier famously said almost 100 years ago, that 'A house is a machine for living in'. If we are to survive the next 100 years a house must be 'a machine for sustaining life' and it must promote those values in its architectural expression to the public who largely consume architecture through the media where image is everything.

The rooftop is constructed of steel planter beds which provide deep soil for native plants and fruit and vegetables. The garden beds are irrigated from the fishpond providing nutrient rich water created by the edible silver perch (fish).
