This treetop house flies out from the top of a 55 degree embankment, overlooking a creek. The Juliet balcony of the master bedroom is 8m above the ground. There is a large pop up roof with 360 degree operable glazing.
This ambitious looking luxury house is designed to take advantage of 270 degree views, and provide an expressive and iconic structure in its prominent hilltop setting. It is a large family home with luxury accomodation on the third storey.
This is our fully prefabricated, modular Pop Blocks house – It uses 4 x 40ft shipping containers, to achieve a 3-bedroom family home with study, 2 bathrooms, large entertainment deck, upper level balcony and roof garden. It has floor to ceiling glass throughout, natural timber veneer internal walls and ceilings, and solid bamboo floors. In this project we have clad the containers to a large extent, but are interested in peeling away these layers to reveal the structural form and true nature of the project. (Also it was mega-cheap to build)
Future City Architects is launching Pop Blocks, a new off-the-shelf, prefabricated, modular granny flat. You can customise your order from a single 15m² module for a backyard art studio, up to a 3-storey apartment with custom colours, cladding, solar panels and roof gardens.
Pop Blocks are the most affordable alternative to renovation, and can be rented out, providing immediate and very high return on investment.
Your piece of bespoke backyard modernism can be fully installed in 6 weeks from ordering, with no council application. As part of our launch we are offering significant discounts on the first few projects, so get in touch and we’ll give you all the details.
Opulent new entertainment spaces for nightclub owner client, whose brief was to retain the existing house for rental, and have completely separate very large luxury 2 bedroom courtyard apartment at the rear. This project involves the lifting of an existing workers cottage, and excavating to produce clear spanning double height living volumes beneath, a large mezzanine bedroom extension, large indoor/ outdoor kitchen, and pool courtyard area.

Construction Documentation Phase
7 prefabricated steel framed single and double storey duplex/ triplex options were produced for use in the client’s various retirement resort projects. This number of types was adequate to achieve homogenous variation across the site without noticeable repetition and preserve a sense of individualism. These duplexes were developed in close collaboration with structural engineers, utilising prefabricated steel frames for low maintenance and fast construction.
