FILIP NESVADBA

 Caravanserai - French Island

The project's principal design decisions were driven very much by the location of the house on an Island disconnected from mainland Australia by road and not serviced by any public utilities or Council amenities. The site sits on a ridgeline looking out across Philip Island to Bass Strait and back across bucolic, pastoral landscapes to the French Island National Park.

Le Signe National Centre for Graphic Design

Project is composed of large-scale planes installed within the city. The architectural design takes its imprint from the universe of graphic design and from the objects and supports that have always invested this art form and continue to do so today: the poster – the sheet of paper the page the screen the billboard.

These large planes are made of stone and compose the walls and roofs. They are rendered abstract by their thinness with 12cm thick panels: stone siding with an aluminium honeycomb core.
