Director of Projects Kelley Mackay last week visited Wye River to speak at 6×6, an exhibition commissioned by the Office of the Victorian Government Architect, curated by Edwards Moore Architects and supported by Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning, the Victorian Building Authority and the Colac-Otway Shire. The event featured six selected “Case Study” houses by architects including KTA, Ian Weir, Edwards Moore, MRTN Architects, Jackson Clements Burrows and Archiblox in the Wye River & Separation Creek area. Its purpose was to help residents think about re-build processes, approaches and materials following the Christmas Day fires last year in which so many people lost their homes. Kelley presented a recent build, House at Big Hill, through a series of models and plans, discussing its BAL rating, site constraints, client brief, lessons learned and bushfire resistant design features. The event will be repeated in Melbourne in July.
