Blane Brackenridge

Hello all, just got back from my Christmas break in Perth so thought I would put up some of the projects I saw. This first lot is a group post of Blane Brackenridge’s work. There are a lot of big houses going up in Perth  and I don’t think anyone does them better right now. Quite often big single residences  seem bloated and flabby but these houses handle the scale well and the proportions work. Which is quite a feat because these houses are enormous. The 6 projects below have gone up over the last 3 years or so, and I left out another 3 or 4 that I know of. The bulk of his work seems to be between Dalkeith and Fremantle (surprising!) and it is so refreshing and frankly exciting to see one of these going up, they really are quite special. They are an unusually cohesive body of works, very easy to spot and attribute (at least I hope I got all of these right!). The use of bright white render, dark glazing, thick, angular profiles with Seidleresque curves, the regular inclusion of  spiral staircases, the circular pizza oven elements. They are exquisitely detailed and composed, with each project bringing something new to the table. Give the one in Coogee a google, well worth it, and if you see any more, let me know!
