1 CPD Non Technical
Behind the Scenes with Sky Architect Studio
23/11/2021 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ADST
2020 DMN Building Design Award winner Sky Tiong, of Sky Architect Studio, has designed many beach houses along Victoria’s Great Ocean Road. Wyndham Beach House, a three-level house, has a small ground-floor footprint. Internally, an illusion of greater space has been created via a number of means including: high ceilings; extensive glazing; a bespoke central, floating staircase; and a restrained palette of natural colours and materials, including timber and marble. The attic level was chosen as the primary space for leisure and relaxation to ensure the occupants would enjoy the sea views through the ultra-wide windows. The west facade features large eaves and skylight, and slot windows with low-e glass to inhibit heat storage from the summer sun.
About the Presenter
Sky Tiong is an architect known for his modern architecture design. Sky began his studies at Curtin University in Perth where he received his Bachelor of Architectural Science, and furthered his studies with a Master of Architecture from Deakin University in Melbourne. Sky founded Sky Architect Studio in 2011 and moved to Melbourne as the business expanded. Sky has gained valuable architecture experience through beach-house design projects along Victoria’s Great Ocean Road. His architectural designs are characterised by simplicity of forms and continuous flow of spaces. Sky completed a thesis on Passive Solar principles and he applies this principle to all his works to ensure great design comes with excellent functionality. Sky is also a pioneer in newly-built Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) design under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) which provides specialist housing solutions for people with extreme functional impairment, or very high support needs.
