We are delighted that Apollo Bay House has made the cover of Houses Magazine!
Beyond the cover you'll find an article which explores the overall design and concepts. There is also an interview with the owner, entitled ‘working with an architect’, which provides insight into the design process.
The pop-up Red Square Cafe has recently been completed in Hobart Airport, and it is now open for business!
A repeat commercial client of ours, we were approached with the brief to design and document a pop-up café, which encapsulated the familiarity of your favourite local coffee shop, and to all be completed within a two-week period before commencing construction!
One week to go until we open our doors for Open House Hobart!
Come by for a visit to see an exhibition of our recent architectural projects. We will also be providing information on the Ehabitat modular housing system.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 10 November from 1 pm - 4pm!
Here’s a sneak peak of a project at Apollo Bay that is very close to completion. The sharp angles create a dynamic form that is softened by Tasmanian Oak at the entry threshold. More to come.
We have been welcomed by a great community of progressive thinkers and social change makers here at Progress Central, Level 3, 673 Bourke Street. Feel free to drop by and pay us a visit!
Dock4 interior designed the existing large open warehouse space and converted it into the Greek style restaurant, with modern inspiration! By incorporating rich and reflective materials, such as pressed copper sheet and tiling, and including strategic lighting, the once large open and empty space is transformed into an ambient and intimate venue!
.…And the food is pretty good too!
Peering over the dunes – Dodges Ferry House frames the spectacular ocean views on a stormy day!The harsh conditions of the site have been a challenge for this particular project. The combination of high winds, heavy rain and eroding sand has been a test of resilience. Now complete, the home provides protection from the elements whilst maintaining expansive views of the wild landscape!
Dock4 is proud to have redesigned a new entrance for Melbourne’s oldest 50m indoor pool!!
Richmond Recreation Centre now has a new spacious, inviting + bright entrance foyer! Nice one!
Defining interior space with sharp angles, our Bruny Island build is taking some shape!
Views are controlled along the entry corridor, until all is revealed. More to come.
Fitzroy Pool now open for a splash! Dock4 Melbourne has created some funky change rooms!
The colour scheme responds to the design brief – to create all-inclusive spaces, for all genders, abilities and nationalities. Just wait until you see inside!
The sharp angles of our newest Bruny Island project taking shape. Scaffolding just as impressive as the building structure! Does this still classify as a shack?
More images to come.
Here's a quick progress shot of our Dodges Ferry House, which is nearing completing. The continuous views to sea are starting to be framed up nicely.
The Pool House has been completed and already the clients are loving their days by the pool!
Here's a new BBQ shelter, forming the hilltop focal point for a new community, South East Melbourne. It's big, very big....and a little bit of Parthenon in there? We've been working on this in conjunction with GCLA Landscape Architects.
Hi everyone! Come and visit us this Sunday as part of the first Open House Hobart on the Eastern Shore. We will be at the Clarence High School Sports Pavilion from 10-1pm. See you there!
Our most recent hospitality project LUMA Woodfired Pizza Cambridge Park is in the heart of a large retail outlet on the out skirts of Hobart, this small commercial space was converted to a specialty restaurant and bar.The sharply raking ceiling wood fire oven and concrete bench form the main elements to the space.
A recent extension/renovation on Bruny Island is renovating and re skinning an existing 2 bedroom prefab cottage with a lightweight tent like framework.
Dock4 is very proud to announce that our sister company, eHabitat, has launched their new website. Modular spaces for living and working: visit www.ehabitat.com.au to get an idea of the limitless range of configurations on offer. Unlike other modular systems, eHabitat is based on a kit of components rather than units of space -construction time on site is still speedy, but design flexibility and customisation are not sacrificed.
Completed in August 2015 after 3 years in the making. A hybrid community centre/ sports pavilion allowing multiple uses by various user groups. We are very happy with the result and the rumor is so is our client.
The Clarence High School Sports Pavilion has been published in the latest Architecture Australia Magazine “Pavilion Architecture from The Ephemeral to the Perennial”. Big thanks to Paddy Dorney for the words.
Concepts completed on the ‘pool house’. It combines a billiard room, pool entertaining area and guest accommodation all rolled into one.
A recent Dock4 meeting at the Vineyard House (refer Chatto Wines, Isle Vineyard), an eHabitat modular home designed & developed by Dock4 director Giles Newstead. Despite the exposed site buffeted by south-westerlies straight off the Southern Ocean the house is weathering very well. eHabitat, now with twelve completed buildings in Tasmania and Victoria, is moving ahead in association with Dock4 -look out for the new website launch shortly…eHabitat is a modular space system with a huge range of possible configurations, for both housing and small commercial spaces.
We are currently doing work at Frankston Arts Centre. New Bars, Commercial Kitchens and Pop up Cafes. We are pleased to see the announcement of Dock4 Architects’ concept for the Large Public Artwork “Bonfire”.
