Broadworth Modular was commissioned by Fraser Property Group to construct a display pavilion for the One Central Park development in the heart of Sydney on Broadway. Our team worked with Surry Hills Architects Smart Design Studio throughout the project and offered modular construction advice to develop structural systems and concepts. The site's inner city location presented many constraints including space, time and traffic that ultimately led to the decision to use a modular system to fast track the construction process and allow for the building to be moved at a later date.
The pavilion was essentially the first contact for potential buyers within the Central Park project and was an integral part in the image of the development. It housed architectural models, prototype vertical gardening and replications of the apartments that were to be built in the residential towers.
This project involved complex engineering and exceptionally high end finishes that were essential for the projects success. The Broadworth Modular system proved to be an efficient construction process saving time and money whilst having minimal effect on traffic on one of the busiest of sites within New South Wales.
The brief for this project was to design and construct a three bedroom house for a young family in the coastal suburb of Bateau Bay.
Broadworth Modular worked with Mark Burgess of Coast Aligned Building Design to create a modern coastal house with characteristics reflecting existing local architecture and materiality. The owner had previously built houses using in situ construction methods but decided to utilise the modular system to benefit from reduced construction time and a predictable budget.
The final product was a high end suburban beach house that responded to the clients requirements for space and function that suited family life and the coastal environment. Lofty roofs, raked ceilings and north facing hi lite windows create a light drenched interior living space whilst the outside is a reflection of local beach house vernacular with a mixture of lightweight cladding and timber detailing.
The home was delivered on time and within budget with an exceptionally high quality finish which highlights the viability of the modular system for the typical suburban housing market.
This rural project involved creating a country retreat for our client in the picturesque setting of the greater Taree hinterland. The design and aesthetic was a collaboration between our team and the client who had experience and substantial knowledge of the building industry.
As a part of the clients lifestyle change, the design was to create a peaceful environment for living whilst allowing panoramic views throughout the surrounding landscape.
This project demonstrates how a somewhat traditional style building can be achieved using the modular system with high end finishes on a reduced time frame and predictable budget.
The final product sat perfectly within its rural setting whilst enhancing the surrounding landscape and responding to site conditions, solar orientation, predominant views and our clients functional requirements.
This modest rural residence was designed by Broadworth Modular for a young family on the Central Coast. The sloping site and the necessity for a quick construction period led to the client exploring the modular solution for their home.
The design focus is about capturing valley views throughout parts of the house whilst maximising natural light and morning sun. The open plan living area seamlessly flows onto the large entertaining and outdoor living area with a northern aspect to keep the space light and warm throughout the day.
The planning and sectional properties of the design make the most of natural cross ventilation and solar orientation, responding to the sites individual environmental factors and properties.
Our brief for this project was to create a contemporary and adventurous home incorporating sustainable principles and comfortable living.
The sleek modern forms and dramatic floor plan are a contrast to the hillside rural setting and reflect our client's wishes to create a daring house that diverts from traditional design and construction methods. The dispersed plan separates the various areas into “pods” to allow zoned heating and cooling of the house to save energy whilst creating light drenched breezeways to connect each part of the home.
The sloping site offered a number of wonderful properties such as solar access and views to the valley. This heavily influenced the floor plan and overall concept which was centered around creating dramatic vistas through to prominent views around the site.
The client wished to follow the natural topography of the site resulting in numerous levels throughout the house to further accentuate the zoned planning and environmental control.
This large scale Broadworth Modular building project involved the repeated production of an architecturally designed coastal two bedroom home as part of development of an ocean front site in Caves Beach, Lake Maquarie.
The houses consisted of characteristic gable forms with a mixture of composite timber cladding and horizontal rough sawn cedar cladding that will silver over time in the harsh coastal conditions. The modest size and clever plan resulted in the perfect weekender with ocean views and comfortable living.
The repeated plan was produced on a large scale to ensure a quick construction and smooth development process for the owners. This project exemplifies Broadworth Modular’s capabilities in mass production and high quality, fast paced construction.
