Larapi Child and Family Learning Centre

Larapi Child & Family Learning Centre

January 10, 2024

We recently spent a couple of beautiful sunny days recording our Larapi Child and Family Learning Centre with Natasha Mullhall Photography.

It was fantastic to see the wonderful playground by Sue Small Landscape Architects being actively used by families from the Waratah / Wynyard region.

Play is the fundamental theme throughout both the building and nature-based playground, with elements provided that challenge, engage, inspire curiosity and increase gross motor skills.

The outdoor play spaces continue the themes established within the centre, a dynamic relationship with the landscape forming an integral component of the facility.

The design draws on elements of a typical domestic backyard, offering sensory, play-based opportunities for learning.

Minallo House Extension

Minallo Residence – Sale

December 18, 2023

JAWS Architects’ gradual work on the renovation of this grand 19th century home came to an end in 2016.

The design facilitates the connection of each different living area to the outside and grounds. It also included the installation of new pivot doors and windows, a new kitchen and a dining room fit-out which included the reinstatement of the original fireplace. Much needed storage space was incorporated into a pantry store and laundry, which were cleverly positioned behind a glazed link fitted around the existing limestone paved courtyard.

This link connects to a new double-height garden conservatory, an indoor-outdoor room that catches the earliest winter sun whilst it nestles into the garden and opens fully to a large deck with pivot doors. The view from this room creates a compelling vista upwards, towards the sky and to large trees beyond.

The solution also saw the living room alter from a thoroughfare into a restful room with a new Bay window replacing French doors and creating a direct visual connection under an existing wisteria covered pergola, across the deck to the beautiful garden.

November 2023, and JAWS Architects has now received news that the home is on the market. We want to wish our clients all the best for this exciting sale. It was a pleasure working with you.
