Stanisic Associates have designed and constructed an array of apartment blocks throughout Sydney's inner-city that have provided a new way to live and to work in a totally urbanised environment. Many of these apartments have been built on the 'brownfield' sites of the redundant industrial land south of the city centre. The architecture has evolved - through an exploration of planning, material usage, spatial organisation and the maximisation of sunlight - into a climatically-responsive and appropriate modernism: an architecture that can be described as 'Eco-Minimalism.'
Stanisic: Live/Work documents this approach to architecture and regenerative planning, and features all the practice's most significant projects, as well as selected un-built schemes that explored key ideas and strategies. All projects have been photographed by Patrick Bingham-Hall, and the book is illustrated with conceptual and schematic renderings, as well as formal drawings.
