Asymmetrical Twins

Added on by David Neustein.

Development Application approved 

Semi-detached dwellings Asymmetrical Twins have successfully been awarded DA approval. The good news comes with encouraging remarks from its immediate neighbours: 

"The current DA is a vast improvement and we support it wholeheartedly. The balance with the neighbouring property at 23 Brown St is superb. Indeed the whole planned scheme is excellent – set-back front and rear as well as superb planting to rear adjoining our premises. We don’t feel the existing building has any heritage value whatsoever and deserves to be replaced. The modern scheme is ideal – a future heritage classic in the making!"

David Neustein has been invited to lecture at Fabrica, an education institution, research workshop and studio based in Italy whose work is renowned globally. 

"Fabrica is not a school, advertising agency or university. It is an applied creativity laboratory, a talent incubator, a studio of sorts in which young, modern artists come from all over the world to develop innovative projects and explore new directions in myriad avenues of communication, from design, music and film to photography, publishing and the Internet."

Event Series, Venice Biennale 

David Neustein has been invited to participate in a public debate events series at the 2014 Venice Biennale.

Titled 'Towards a New Avant Garde,' the event seeks to engage public debate that will confront the motivations of a new generation of Italian architects with the legacy of the radical architecture movement of the 60s and 70s. 

"Towards A New Avant-Garde event series instigates a permanent attitude of questioning and debate, while promoting a new kind of architectural reflection, harnessed by the large-scale printer installation that allows for real-time publication of the debated issues and topics."

Other Architects has completed a Development Application for a pair of semi-detached dwellings in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs.

It has been a challenging design process as the site slopes steeply to the south and is heritage-protected. We were therefore delighted to steer the design through rigorous analysis from our environmental, heritage, planning, hydraulic and landscape consultants.

The project cost is estimated at $1.6 million, with approval expected in early 2014.

More information about the Twins can be found here.
