This is third scheme developed for the site under the SEPP ‘Seniors Living’ 2004. With a new client happy to add in lifts to each townhouse, a large amount of ground floor area has now be made available to Private Outdoor Space. Originally a large amount of ground floor area was surface parking, thus the change in schemes is a great win for future residents.
Boarding House - Allambie Heights
Working with SEPP ‘Affordable Rental Housing’ 2009, this 36 Bed boarding house was submitted in Feburary 2018. Northern Beaches Council had said “The architectural style of the development is a positive element of the design and is considered to be suitable for the area. The proposed colours and materials fit with and reflect the materials and building forms of the dwellings in the street.”
During the Land and Environment Court process, council agreed this building met the SEPP, DCP and LEP and therefore should be approved. The commissioner agreed and the development is now approved.
Gulliver Street Brookvale
The best projects are those made with love. The Sailor's approached me to draft their ideal renovations to their existing home. This project was about the realisation of the client's wishes whilst capitalising on their location.
This project was approached understanding the notion that the people inhabiting the space knew best their desires. Collaborating closely with the client and their ideas, there wasn't much left to do than simply draw.
The final product speaks to their hard work: bedrooms were relocated to provide open plan living flowing out to the Bronte view. It is a project in which Scott is very proud to have been involved.
Scott was mainly involved in the drafting of the Sailor's ideas, and then the subsequent approvals process. During construction the client made some changes and detailed items such as the kitchen themselves. Scott wasn't required for this stage as the client had builders within the family; however, he still stayed in contact and suggested items such as sliding doors rather then bi-folding as the views would be much better.
High Line, Dee Why
Working at Marchese Partners meant Scott lead the documentation of High Line Apartments in Dee Why. The 164 apartments over 15 stories was an amazing project and allowed Scott to understand the planning of large apartment complexes with detail.

Phoenix Apartments was a construction job for St Bernard's Construction. Whilst working for Marchese Partners, Scott was responsible for the construction documentation of a 30 unit development that was purchased with an existing Approved DA on the site. Utilising Revit, Scott was able to draft the construction documentation in a short time-frame, allowing for work to proceed at a fast rate.
Scott had help from one other person in the initial drafting, but ultimately was responsible for finalising construction documentation whilst managing the client, consultants and other documentation.
Both privately and whilst working at Marchese Partners, Scott has had the joy of starting a project from scratch. Feasibility studies are not only the first step in the process of realising a design on a site, but they are key to helping a client decide what to do with their land or if to buy land.
Please see a range of sketched from various jobs. Addresses have been removed for privacy reasons. The work done at Marchese Partners is clearly identified and at that time Scott was under the guidance of a Principle in the firm.
Pop Pods - University Design
Tutor: Rob Brown from Casey Brown Architects
A studio regarding the ‘New Australian Dream’ which encouraged us to think for an affordable housing scheme for a chosen climate. These Pop Pods are an idea where the structure is a fixed element that repeats in each pod, saving cost, and the walls are customised to each project. It ends up being all prefabricated, and brought to site on a trucks.
Received a High Distinction.
Bronte Marine Drive
Whilst working at David Fleeting Architects, Scott had the pleasure of drafting the sketch designs, Development Application and the Tender Drawings for a multi-million dollar home with water views over Bronte.
Drafting this house gave Scott a greater understanding of detailing and construction documentation of houses.
Read Street Bronte
Not all work needs to be large, or have finalised renders. Whilst Scott was drafting at David Fleeting Architects, he had the pleasure of drafting this small renovation for a client. These images also demonstrate the power of 3D modelling, whereby the different between draft 3D views and the finished product are not too dissimilar.
