Terracotta, brick, granite: Technē’s Poacher & Hound
“The project is imagined as the sanctuary of a harsh terrain traveller. Brass objects scattered throughout the space are found treasured pieces, bridging the gap between the natural elements and the fine graphic elements.” Poacher & Hound is one of the latest hospitality projects designed by Technē Architecture + Interior Design.

Bluff Farm House
In the tradition of isolated rural buildings, the house is conceived as a singular gesture responding to the strength of the site: a grassy terrace overlooking a river and facing a spectacular valley. The architectural expression of the design concept was realised in the refuge of the enclosing precast concrete wall that wraps around the […]
Fig Tree Pocket House
The project was approached as an act of heritage conservation and the results of our design hand are barely legible to strangers. Being a modular, structurally-determined post and beam wooden structure, and therefore inherently rigid and full of conviction, the original house instructed our every move. First, existing partition walls were cleared, then an entirely […]
MCKs core ideas, notions of journey, spatial experience, ambiguous space and interior/exterior transition, are all present in the Chatswood House. Supplementary considerations were aspect and orientation, maximal interior solar access and the budgetary and site area constraints. The proposal addresses the steep rise from the rear of the existing house up to the laneway by […]
A home that was essentially one space for a family with fond memories of another culture formed a strong generating diagram for the design. The primary ambition for the project is the creation of open, centralised living space. The notion of building with something found is expressed through the solidity and permanence of concrete platforms […]
The new addition was to be as much in harmony with the original house as possible. Therefore, the design remained very minimal with honest materials like steel, timber and glass in a Miesian pavilion style arrangement. A wall of sliding glass doors connects the family area and deck but also allows natural light to penetrate […]
The renovation aimed to increase the natural amenity of the living spaces and to modernise the existing fabric while maintaining a balanced relationship with the period features. The objectives were achieved through a new roof structure, with wall heights modified to suit, and new full height glazing on the north façade, which maximised light. As […]
The extension to the Victorian Terrace is a framed steel skeleton which envelopes the unusually high masonry boundary wall (now a part of the interior). The East and West facades are concealed in louvres, which peel back to reveal an internal environment of high folding planes, playfully splashed with deep red joinery and occasionally punctured […]
Mansfield Appleton Residence
The challenge of the project was to create a contemporary living space within a 50s style, 80sqm apartment for a couple, while also providing a place to sleep and study part-time for their teenage children and respective partners. The focus centered on flexibility and economy of space while maintaining a free-flowing, light-filled interior that takes […]
Norman Reach Penthouse
This Brisbane penthouse features seamless connections between the living spaces, with an aesthetic inspired by the simple elegance of 1950s design.
This apartment features a cool palette and an airy, light-filled interior.
