SC+E is a passionate, design focused, female led Studio providing quality Architecture and Design.

Regardless of budget, size or typology, our training as Architects equips us with the expertise to envision, create and deliver the best outcome for each project.

We strive to facilitate an engaging and collaborative process with all of our clients, understanding the uniqueness of each project. We delight in surprising clients with design solutions that are unexpected but uniquely fitting.

Our ethos at SC+E is to approach design holistically. Design is not limited to architecture. Design encapsulates materiality, colour, visual representation, objects and more.

Through our work, Studio C + E aims to provide consultation, education and awareness around the power and importance of good design in everyday life.

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognise their continued connection to land, waters and culture.

Located in an Industrial Overlay, this alterations and additions project retains the original Victorian Terrace facade whilst maximising amenity on a small site. The front facade and rooms are retained, whilst the rear is demolished to make way for a new two storey and roof terrace addition.

The spiral staircase provides a sculptural focal point which is experienced throughout the building. Offset from the northern boundary, the addition provides a peaceful outlook and access to natural sunlight on the ground floor, complemented by the Roof Terrace for outdoor entertaining. A material palette of brick and steel references both the original facade and industrial context, allowing the addition to sit comfortably in its surrounds.

Surrounded by the Italian Alps, the project consists of the demolition of an existing two storey mountain “rifugio” to make way for a new, two storey residential home. Externally, the 70s rendered building is generally unremarkable in comparison to the surrounding historical dwellings. Internally, its layout is convoluted, derivative of its original use as a hospitality and boarding venue.

Nestled into the side of the mountain, the proposed design draws inspiration from both the natural setting and surrounding Italian vernacular. Responding to this context, external cladding of stone and timber grounds the soaring roof above. Accounting for both summer and winter use, the compact floor plan allows the lower level to be sealed off for energy efficiency - letting the house grow and shrink to suit a multi-generational family.

This project involves the replanning and renovation of an existing bathroom of a single storey weatherboard house. This proposal retains the high ceiling, window and overall size of the original bathroom whilst reconfiguring the interior completely in order to create a more functional space.

The introduction of full height storage and a shower bench along the length of the room creates a central circulation spine, maximising use of the room’s square footprint. Curved shower walls and textured paint finish soften the space and help create a tranquil atmosphere.
