With low ceilings and limited space of the project site, HBO+EMTB’s design team created a concept that utilised low workstation panels in order to open up most of the space. Separate tenancies were created by filling the previous unleasable space with a ribraft concrete slab connected to the existing floor slab. Due to the standard of building and affordability, the apartments have sold out in a very short time frame. The apartment building comes at a time when there is high demand for these types of apartments, filling a need at the lower end of the new housing market.
This project is in it’s intial site preparation stage and is due for completion in the next 12 months. HBO+EMTB were engaged by Museum Victoria to provide Architectural Services for the IMAX theatres renovation project. A Focus of the project is to improve and upgrade safety and access and DDA compliance to bring the facility in line with current industry standards. Deakin University identified the need to assess and develop solutions to rectify the failing and aging elements of Building KA and to produce an outcome that would give the building a renewed lifespan of 10+ years.
HBO+EMTB was also engaged to refurbish 3,500sqm of  internal spaces for building KA with particular focus to level 5.
The completion of Group M's Singapore offices has finalised the consolidation of five different advertising agencies into the one shared space. With an incredibly tight programme for this relocation project the project manager advised the Client to select a construction management procurement route, allowing the design and construction to run concurrently in order to achieve the timeframe set by the Client. Following the completion of this project, the WPP Group of companies expanded by acquiring the Catalyst and Xaxis agencies. HBO+EMTB was commissioned by DBS Bank to provide interior design and project management consultancy services for the relocation work of their existing office at Comtech to a new 100,000sqft Asia Gateway office at 10 Toh Guan Road. In line with company’s tagline - Living, Breathing Asia, DBS wanted to incorporate Asian elements such as a water theme in their social hub areas.
The project was inspired by the building courtyard and common elements representing nature, such as tree, water, and stone, are present in all areas.
The cafeteria is located in the largest social hub, which can also be used for town hall meetings. HBO+EMTB also designed the courtyard space, frequently visited by the staff throughout the day.
HBO+EMTB’s design of DBS Asia Gateway incorporates sustainable design principles and is Green Mark certified. After the success of Tribeca South, HBO+EMTB was again commissioned by BGC Developments to design a slightly larger apartment project with, again, a point of difference. The overall design concept for Tribeca East focuses on the central courtyard, which seeks to maximise natural light penetration as well as view opportunities. Like Tribeca South, a strong case was built to exceed plot ratio and the heights specified in the design guidelines, and approval was also granted on the first time of application.
HBO+EMTB was commissioned by BGC Developments to design an apartment project that would stand out in an aggressive residential market.
Approval to exceed the plot ratio and the heights specified in the design guidelines was granted at the time of first application. The apartments sold out within a few weeks and construction is due for completion by the end of 2015.

Murdoch University were looking to refurbish a building dating from the eighties into a facility for students to study human anatomy. The small Shed 5 bar and entrance area were also refurbished with similar finishes to the restaurant.
Occupying one of the oldest heritage wharf stores on Wellington's waterfront, The Crab Shack combines a seaside culinary theme with an industrial look with a difference.
Specialising in seafood with a special emphasis on New Zealand seafood, HBO+EMTB were able to create the atmosphere of a contemporary seaside shanty through their design.
To create the mood customised lighting with cane craypots and crab nets with loose bulbs hang by rope from the wharfs existing timber rafters. The Crab Shack links visually with the adjoining Shed 5 restaurant, also designed for the Nourish Group by HBO+EMTB, by melding the vertical distressed weatherboards with the dark timber of the more sophisticated Shed 5 next door. Yass Valley Council engaged HBO+EMTB Urban and Landscape Design to prepare a Masterplan for Murrumbateman which will guide the growth of the Village over the next 20 years up to 2031.
As a result of community consultation, site analysis and mapping of Opportunities and Constraints, the study team identified key issues, design criteria and strategies that lead to a Structure Plan.
The proposed Structure Plan features a Village Centre (incorporating existing retail and commercial uses) and a new Village Centre Spine (incorporating the old highway) which, taken together will provide a new civic focus for Murrumbateman. HBO+EMTB were engaged by Holroyd City Council to undertake built form and urban design modelling for Merrylands and Wentworthville Town Centres. As part of a multidisciplinary team of designers and contractors, HBO+EMTB prepared the urban design component of the Abigroup tender for the design, construction and maintenance tender for this ten kilometre section of the Pacific Highway.
On award of the tender, HBO+EMTB, SMEC Engineering and the Abigroup worked together to develop the tender design to enable documentation and construction. A major fauna overpass straddling 4 lanes and 60 metres wide, was designed to allow connectivity for koalas, and forested medians allow gliders to cross the highway. Wide medians retain extensive stands of bushland vegetation reinforcing the forest journey experience and allow gliders to cross the highway. Architectural design of noise walls that relate to the rural, creek and native forests the setting.
HBO+EMTB are a member of the Lawson Alliance engaged to provide urban and landscape detailed design and documentation for the upgrade of the Great Western Highway at Lawson (Stage 2 Ferguson Avenue to Bass Street) as well as construction advice services. An integrated urban and landscape design which protects and enhances the heritage and cultural character of the Blue Mountains setting and the local character of Lawson including the Catholic Precinct.
3D modelling utilised during the design process resolved design issues between disciplines. Integrated design of throw screens and facade panels provided a distinctive railway aesthetic.
The design maximised the opportunities for tree planting to maintain the bushland character between Hazelbrook and Lawson.
HBO+EMTB was commissioned by the NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure (DoPI) and Pittwater Council to prepare an Urban Design Study for Warriewood Valley which in turn informed the preparation of a strategic planning framework for Warriewood Valley. HBO+EMTB was commissioned to refurbish the iconic Backbencher Bar after it was damaged in a fire that destroyed the premises. The design references the style of the original heritage building it sits within adding sophisticated contemporary touches.
HBO+EMTB has been appointed to design a multi-purpose building that will function as the official headquarters of Football NSW (FNSW) with integrated spectator and playing facilities.
The building will be constructed at Football NSW's current home base, the 11 hectare Valentine Sports Park at Glenwood in western Sydney.
The centrepiece of the redevelopment is a striking new three level multi-purpose building which will be the new home of Football NSW. The design features a striking rectangular prism supported by broad angular columns that floats above the raked stands.
An existing gymnasium building will be refurbished and extended to create an additional 365sqm and will include an international standard Futsal stadium with tiered seating for 400 spectators. HBO+EMTB has been providing town planning advice and managed the development approval process including providing all statutory planning advice instrumental in the formulation of the site and redevelopment masterplan.
Following an invited design competition, HBO+EMTB was selected to prepare the masterplan, design, documentation and contract administration for refurbishing Harry Seidler’s Edmund Barton Building on Kings Avenue, Barton in Canberra. Acknowledging this, HBO+EMTB has taken a light handed approach to the refurbishment, stripping back the internal spaces to improve efficiency and wayfinding, and replacing old systems with more efficient and sustainable technologies.
Critical to the success of the refurbishment is the increase in legibility for both tenants and visitors.
While referencing the materials and proportions of the existing mixed-use developments on the same road, HBO+EMTB provided a sculptural statement that enlivens the street corner and attracts people to meet and gather at the complex. HBO+EMTB was engaged to design a new multi-storey headquarters for the National Rugby League (NRL) at Moore Park in Sydney. For the first time, this 3,600sqm plus basement building brings together five separate rugby league organisations into a single headquarters, marking the commencement of a new era in the game. At ground level, an interactive learning centre for school children and community development is a key facility that connects  the game with the public. HBO+EMTB was engaged to provide an accommodation study, preliminary site master plan, design, documentation and contract administration and statutory planning services for a new Police Force Facility in Sydney. The project included three buildings, communications towers, an external storage yard and helicopter landing pad. Building 3 is a high-bay warehouse with a mezzanine level at the western end, with a GFA of 3,300sqm. The finished design strikes an elegant balance between utilitarian function and clean lines, accentuated by highlights of bold colour and geometric shapes that give the facility a strong visual identity.
HBO+EMTB was engaged by Australia Post to provide architectural services for the transformation of Perth's famous GPO Building into a revitalised commercial precinct, integrating public thoroughfares, retail and hospitality facilities.
Connecting through to the developments associated with a new underground train station in William Street, the GPO redevelopment encompasses an enlivened ground floor retail area with seven floors of commercial office tenancies above.
Working in collaboration with Griffiths Architects, the scope of work included gutting all existing fitouts, completely re-servicing the building including the lift core, redesigning the circulation system, reinstating the spectacular central atrium and providing a sky-bridge linkage across the atrium on levels two to six. The seven floors of office space are designed as commercial offices, with HBO+EMTB plans offering a unique commercial floor plate, with abundant natural light coming from the central atrium and the generous ceiling heights. Despite the constraint of existing architecture, HBO+EMTB implemented environmentally sustainable principles in the design of both the building’s external envelope and services.
The project has been awarded a 4 star Green Star Rating under the Green Building Council of Australia's As-Built Rating Tool V2 and a 5 star NABERs Rating. The Department of Immigration and Citizenship’s (DiAC) Head Office in Canberra is one of the largest Federal Government projects in recent years, consolidating 1,800 staff within one location. The environmentally sustainable development incorporates two separate wings, each six levels plus basement parking, connected by a central link. The primary challenge facing the interior design team involved bringing humanity and scale to the building. A highly collaborative approach between the builder, developer, tenant and design team saw this complex project delivered two months ahead of schedule and at commercially attractive terms.

Servicing Victoria and New South Wales including Numurkah, Shepparton, Mansfield, Benalla, Cobram, Yarrawonga, Finley, Tocumwal and Deniliquin. The stronger groups tended to settle in the more desirable areas where there was an abundance of water, natural resources (wood, clay, iron ore, coal), and natural protection (hills, sea coast, rivers, lakes). And by the time the weaker finally arrived at a location to settle down, they were frequently so far removed from other groups that there was little contact, trade, or interaction. For these reasons while civilizations were forming in Mesopotamia, India, China, and North Africa, groups that had roamed as far as North and South America and islands in the Pacific developed little further in cultural organization than the tribal unit and possessed a technology that was far less developed than in the larger civilizations. About the early civilizations, the Apostle Paul, in Romans 1-3, states that they were created with a clear knowledge of God, but having rejected and twisted what truth they did possess, they worshipped the creature rather than the Creator. Sumer was a collection of over thirty city-states, each possessing its own patron deity, but sharing a common religion featuring the worship of Elil with a central religious center at Nippur.
Other innovations of the Sumerians were the wooden wheel, the wooden plow, and the wooden oar for their ships.
The Sumerians developed (or recovered from their spiritual memory derived from Noah) an elaborate belief system that included many gods who possessed human characteristics, a concept of personal sin, that they had been created to serve the gods, a class system of sorts between major and minor gods, and an elaborate flood story. On their tablets of clay they recorded the Epic of Gilgamesh, the story of a perfect, idyllic world into which the first created humans were placed, a world free from warfare, hatred, and one where everyone spoke the same language. The Sumerians were weakened due to the salinization of their wheat fields and were overcome by an invading group of people led by Sargon, the Great. An Akkadian legend says that Sargon was abandoned by his mother in a reed basket which she placed in a river. Sargon developed an industry of bronze weapons making, and to secure an abundant supply of tin and copper with which to make the bronze, he extended his kingdom north into present day Syria. The growth of such an urban, economic empire (which is also known as the Babylonian Empire) required codes and laws to govern life generally and the economy in particular.
Although the Babylonians absorbed much of the Sumerian worldview, they also developed a complex religion based upon astrology. The Assyrians, located to the north of Babylon, revived and were able to fight off several other invading groups that came into the Fertile Crescent from Indo-Europe and Syria. The constant flow of invading peoples into the Fertile Crescent resulted in a blending of cultures, religions, and gene pools.
After over 400 years as slave in Egypt, Abrahama€™s descendants, under the leadership of Moses, left Egypt miraculously under Goda€™s guidance around the year 1250 B.C. During this period of time God delivered to the Hebrews the religious system known as Judaism.
After the 40 years of wilderness living, which resulted from their disobedience evidenced in worshipping the golden calf fashioned by Aaron, the brother of Moses, the Hebrews entered Canaan. The northern section, Israel, was invaded, captured, and sent into exile by Assyria in 732 B. During their centuries of development, God raised up among the Hebrews the ancient prophets, who were raised up by God to give warnings to both Israel as well as to their pagan neighbors. They were chosen by God to be his covenant people, from among whom the Messiah was born of the virgin Mary.
The Philistines were descendants of a sea people who originated from around the Aegean Sea area to the east of Greece. The Philistines were a literate people who originally spoke the language of people living in Crete, Cyprus, and the Aegean area.
This civilization eventually concluded that their ruler, the Pharaoh, was actually divinity in the flesh.
Perhaps the most famous of its rulers was Cleopatra who was the lover of both Julius Caesar and of Marc Anthony of the Roman Empire. He restored Egyptian religious worship and traditions back to their state prior to the radical revisions introduced by Tutakamena€™s father, Pharaoh Akhanaten. Rameses ruled for over 60 years and died at the age of 93, an age far exceeding the average 35-year life span of Egyptians who were his contemporaries. The early Minoan settlers of Crete and southern Greece were descendants of Egyptians who first migrated to the island of Crete. They were the first to develop the skills necessary to build large stone columns for their many massive palaces, monuments, and temples.

They were major importers and exporters of gold, silver, ivory, bronze, pottery, and animals from the continent of Africa to the south and developed extensive trade with Middle Asia, North Africa., and even East Asia. They were master canal builders and specialists in highly developed agriculture and irrigation systems.
It is speculated that they were extensive travelers, and that skills needed to build the pyramids constructed by the Mayans in South America may have been brought by Egyptians traveling in their reed boats. They hosted the descendants of Abraham for over 450 years, first as guests and family members of the house of Moses, and later as slaves. Together with the Hittites after the Battle of Kadesh, the Egyptians pioneered a format for developing a long-lasting treaty between two powerful nations that numerous other subsequent civilizations followed. The Gospel of Christ was brought to the Egyptians by the Apostle Mark who was martyred during his ministry in Egypt. The civilization that developed in the Indus River Valley rivals Egypt and Mesopotamia as the oldest known civilization. At the apex of its development, the Harappa population was about 10% of the known worlda€™s population, making it comparable to the Nile River civilization in Egypt and probably larger than that in Mesopotamia. The Harappa civilization developed when a large number of Aryan people descended into the Indus Valley from the northeast. A large, extensive sewage system to which all of the buildings in the cities were connected. Agriculture was made possible by the annual flooding in the spring when the ice melted and in July and August during the rainy season. The Longshan Culture built large fortified towns along the Yellow River, fortified by large earthen walls and ramparts. There are indications that the early Chinese who settled along the Yellow River believed in the same God as the Hebrews, the God who was revealed to them in creation and in the stories received from Noah and his sons.
The Sumerians, Amorites, Egyptians, Longshan, and Harappa were some of the earliest groups that formed civilizations. The Indo-European language group spread from the Black Sea area into the Indus River Valley and into Euro-Asia. Civilizations emerged early and quickly after the Flood throughout the four major population areas of Europe, Euro-Asia, and Asia.
The Nile River Valley was home to the great Egyptian civilization that reached its zenith during the reign of Ramses II, the probable pharaoh reigning during the time of Moses and the Exodus. An advanced Harappa civilization existed in the Indus Valley of India that conducted trade with Egypt and Mesopotamia. Respond correctly to at least 80% of the questions based upon the nine big ideas found in the first section above, Whata€™s Worth Knowing?
Be able to list several chief characteristics and features of each of the four major river civilizations. Create with your group ten test questions you believe all student should be able to answer after your groups presentation.
Identify on a blank map the four major areas of civilization along the four river valleys and the items below. On their tablets of clay they recorded the Epic of Gilgamesh, the storyA  of a perfect, idyllic world into which the first created humans were placed, a world free from warfare, hatred, and one where everyone spoke the same language. Sargon developed an industry of bronze weapons making, and to secure an abundant supply of tin and copper with which to make the bronze, he extended his kingdom north into present day Syria.A  He also developed a library of several thousand clay tablets, built a vast network of roads, and established the first known postal system. The growth of such an urban, economic empire (which is also known as the Babylonian Empire)A  required codes and laws to govern life generally and the economy in particular. From Moses was received the Pentateuch, or the Five Books of Moses.A  He also established the first representative government, a system of government, Peoplea€™s Law, that was carried across Europe into England by the Anglo-Saxons, and became foundational for the United States of America. After the death of Solomon, the nation of the Hebrews experienced civil war and separated into Israel in the north occupied by ten of the tribes, and Judah (from which the name a€?Jewa€? was derived) in the south occupied by two of the tribes. Rameses ruled for over 60 years and died at the age of 93, an age far exceeding the average 35-year life span of Egyptians who were his contemporaries.A  He was so revered by the nation (for three generations of Egyptians knew no other Pharaoh) that for generations after his death he was referred to as the Great Ancestor of the nation. At the apex of its development, the Harappa population was about 10% of the known worlda€™sA  population, making it comparable to the Nile River civilization in Egypt and probably larger than that in Mesopotamia. The major power in the Harappa society was the priestly caste that presided over a polytheistic religious system. The Boatbuilders Yard brings 'fine-grain urbanism' to Melbourne's South Wharf, an architectural mixed bag. THE Boatbuilders Yard, a new cafe and bar designed by Six Degrees Architects, has introduced some ad hoc comfort and ''fine-grain urbanism'' to the big-scale environment of South Wharf. There are beloved, slightly worn, older things among the flash new spaces, but the inhabitants are still to make the environment their own. And the ''inhabitants'' are also mixed - tourists, conference delegates, shoppers, hotel guests, workers, apartment dwellers, cyclists, joggers and those strolling the promenade in the sun. Robust and chunky, each provides shade, shelter and an overhead heater to one or more outdoor tables.
The shed and yard were once home to National Trust volunteers looking after Polly Woodside and other historic boats.
More importantly, the planning encourages people to cut through the site on their way to other places. This is what makes the project noteworthy: it promotes an unusual relationship between the private areas of the cafe and bar and the public space of the promenade.
The Boatbuilders Yard is more than another riverside cafe fitout, it suggests a different way to connect public and private urban spaces of varying scales.
Over the years, Six Degrees has encouraged people to use Melbourne's hidden spaces in new ways - Meyers Place Bar (their first project, tucked into a city lane), West Melbourne's Public Office, and the Riverland Bar, in the Vaults, to name a few. Six Degrees: Greatest Hits, Wunderlich Gallery, Architecture Building, University of Melbourne, until November 23. Philippines (member practice of EY) commissioned HBO+EMTB toprovide design and build services for its 1,135sqm training facility that occupies the third floor of Philippine First Building in Makati City’s CBD. Despite being the first time that the Client has to work with low panels, as they are accustomed with using high screen panels, the concept was eagerly accepted by the users. Built with an additional storey, The Pines will house 52 apartments over 4 floors and a lower level for parking. Most buyers have been retirees who are downsizing and moving from the surrounding slopes of Browns Bay.
This is further to HBO+EMTB original involvement in the design of the IMAX Theatre space back in the early 90’s. The space within a disused shopping centre has been transformed to include a café, bookstore, exhibition space, psychology clinic, meeting spaces and Victoria University Headquarters. The refurbishment creates new student breakout and lounge spaces, lecture theatres, teaching laboratories, seminar rooms, meeting rooms, computer laboratories, flexible teaching spaces, specialist teaching facilities and involves extensive lighting, services and AV upgrades.
Originally in separate spaces, Group M, Axis, MEC, Mediacom and Mindshare now inhabit an Activity Based Working (ABW) environment with shared facilities such as reception, client waiting, meeting and presentation spaces.
This meant that future expansion space was then leased and HBO+EMTB were appointed to create two additional individual zones to house the new agencies. The project committee envisioned a modern and space efficient workspace that promotes staff engagement and retention.
Originally a warehouse space, one of the challenges of the design was to make staff feel like they were entering an office, rather than a warehouse.
The project space was defined into four zones, each zone is distinguished by four different themes and colours - leaf, waves, pebbles, and petals. The colour theme for this hub is red - representing flowers, with customised furniture resembling trees. Whilst the 84 apartments are similar to Tribeca South, some new types were introduced with the addition of 10 two-storey town houses. The North East side adjacent to the existing apartments is open, allowing breeze to flow through retained trees into the development.
The height variation produces a significant visual impact and presence, where corridor views are maximised. The scope of work also included MEPFS consultancy, documentation and contract administration. Located along the busy highway of EDSA in Quezon City, the 15-storey office building, measuring 42,000sqm, is occupied by multinational BPO companies. The facilities of the club house include a 250-person banquet hall with a garden, a cafe, and a business centre. Splashes of company colours blue and red are juxtaposed against strong, monochromic lines and natural materials.
Enclosed rooms are situated away from window areas to allow daylight to penetrate into the building, opening up the space and creating an environment that is transparent and more efficient.
All new materials were sourced locally to reduce the delay in purchasing and shipping times. Given a tight timeframe, the design team refined the existing design and added new elements to produce a classy look, suitable for a luxury store. Firmenich Mumbai relocated to new premises and has commissioned HBO+EMTB to undertake the interior fitout of the new corporate headquarters.
The general office is made up of a combination of workstations and full-height offices, with a generous staff cafe area and a variety of choices for meeting spaces, both private and collaborative. A minimal but strong palette of natural materials and colours has been selected to create an environment which is familiar and appealing. The Norfolk has been carefully designed by the New Zealand offices of HBO+EMTB to provide an atmosphere that is comforting but sophisticated; immediately welcoming while also inviting personalization and ownership. Meeting tables which seat 6 people have been arranged in the space as opposed to numerous individual desks. HBO+EMTB designed a private dining area which could open up into a larger space for functions such as weddings. This provided a more efficient use of space and the perfect setting for a pre or post drink with a dining experience. With the seabreeze entering through large custom timber sliding doors, the space opens up onto a terrace so patrons can enjoy the atmosphere both inside and out. Complete with shellfish display, barbeque and custom wine barrel steamers, this area gives a contemporary and commercially viable take on the indigenous Maori hangi native to New Zealand's original people. The neutral ropes of The Crab Shack transition into the refined rope wall-covering of Shed 5 to seamlessly connect both restaurants over the entire length of the wharf. The Structure Plan also identifies two locations near the Village Core as possible sites for tourist accommodation, a designated Winery Precinct, new recreational facilities, land for new standard residential blocks and a network of "Greenways" linking existing and new open spaces, watercourses, heritage and cultural items, the Village Centre, School and adjoining recreation facilities. The objective of the Study was to produce future built form modelling and provide urban design advice for both Merrylands and Wentworthville Town Centres in order to inform Holroyd City Council’s decision-making process for revised development controls within the centres. Maintaining the urban and landscape design intent throughout this process was a major objective. Key considerations were landmark views to the tall open forest of the Bongil Bongil National Park and the Great Dividing Range. Increased traffic volume on the motorway has resulted in the need to increase capacity and improve the level of service for users. The Urban Design Study determined appropriate urban design built form outcomes for a selection of sites, considering flooding, environmental constraints, road network capacity and economic feasibility.
The Backbencher Bar has been a regular watering hole for politicians over the years and features a number of caricature puppets of influential politicians.
The bar has been broken up into several zones including the restaurant, bar, sports bar, lounge area and courtyard.
The exterior facades were retained while bi-folding courtyard doors were instated to match the original look. The project comprises a range of works including the upgrade of five playing surfaces, with two fields converted to international standard synthetic surfaces. In addition to the co-ordination and preparation of a Statement of Environmental Effects, the Group has managed all aspects of the preparation, lodgement and approval of the Redevelopment Proposal. The scheme also introduces new elements that aim to restore Seidler’s original civic vision for a series of vibrant public spaces at ground level. The refurbishment of the ground level foyers and lift lobbies will aid movement towards and through the building, using subtle colour and material cues to guide visitors while maintaining the integrity and clarity of the original building. In addition to the architectural commission, HBO+EMTB also won a separate competitive process for all interior design of the complete building.
Workspaces are largely open-plan although each member organisation has its own regional cluster with graphic cues, including code colours and large-scale images of their respective players in action.
Flexibility is integral to the design , and a special purpose judiciary room also doubles as a conference media room. HBO+EMTB managed the Part 5 Planning approvals for the Project and facilitated the approval process to ensure a rapid approval outcome.
Designed to initially accommodate an estimated 230 permanent staff members, with the potential for future expansion of up to 400 staff, the facility is operational 24 hours, seven days a week. The ground level contains reception, offices, garages, workshops, loading dock, meal rooms, gymnasium, store rooms, plant rooms and amenities.
The ground floor level contains a large area to accommodate warehouse storage, offices, amenities, reception and a communications room. The ground floor of GPO was designed to be a pivotal point of access into the urban landscape connecting Perth Central Railway to the new William Street Station.
Incorporating green aspects into a heritage listed building called for a clever design response from HBO+EMTB, with many elements of the building being preserved. HBO+EMTB was responsible for initial facilities planning, design and documentation of both the base building and integrated fitout.

Initially they were propelled to distance themselves from each other by major language differences. Because they settled in these areas and because they settled first, they had more time and resources to develop civilizations.
One thing that is usually required for a culture to develop is interaction with other culture groups. Hence, the imperialistic armies of Europe with canons, ships, and guns met tribesmen in parts of Africa armed with spear and bows and arrow.
The Sumerians were a people who perhaps migrated from the Caspian Sea area into the Fertile Crescent, the fertile area lying between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. Sumerian priests would climb these tall towers thinking that at the top they might encounter the gods who would descend from the sky to meet with them.
Little is known about this period or people, but there are written records that indicate that there were kings who ruled Sumer during the antedeluvian period (period of time between Creation and the Flood). They utilized and brought to greater development a writing system on clay tablets, called cuneiform, borrowed from earlier groups in the area.
Sargon established the powerful and vast empire of Akkad that ruled over most of the Fertile Crescent.
Therefore, Hammurabi developed an extensive set of laws to govern the culture and the economy. They observed the movement of the stars through astronomy in an attempt to understand the behavior and will of the gods. People in the area became known as a€?Mesopotamiansa€? rather than Amorites, Sumerian, Assyrians, or Babylonians. The growth of population created problems with sewage, garbage, overcrowding in urban centers, decreasing drinking water supplies, disease, and the constant threat of a new people group arriving to take advantage of the fertile soil -- even though salinization continued to be a constant problem. In a revelation from Elohim, Abraham was promised an inherited land that would remain the possession of his descendants. During a period of 40 years in the wilderness between Egypt and Canaan Moses received from God the Ten Commandments while communing with God on the top of Mount Sinai. Under the leadership of Joshua, the Hebrews systematically defeated all the people groups living in the land of Canaan and possessed the land promised to them by God. They gradually adopted the language of the Canaanites and blended their religion with that of the Canaanites and featured the worship of the god Baal. Therefore they could not corrupt the divine blood line through marriage with common people. The i??entire cultural and economic life of the nation was built upon the flooding of the Nile River.
For one brief period, however, one of the Pharaohs, Akhenaten, promoted a form of monotheism.

Cleopatra was a descendant of General Ptolemy who was given governance over Egypt by Alexander the Great of Greece. When Ashkenaten became Pharaoh he banished the gods of Egypt, banished their priests, emptied their temples, and forbade their worship or sacrifices made to them. He (1) ended the worship of Aten, contrary to his fathera€™s policy, and (2) restored the worship of Amun. His wife petitioned the king of the Hittites, asking to be given as a wife to one of his sons.
He was known as a war pharaoh, leading campaigns against the Hittites, Syrians, Libyans, Nubians, and other neighboring nations. They founded the Minoan civilization and their capitol city of Knossos on the island of Crete. They fell victim to the plagues brought by God against the Pharaoha€™s (likely Rameses II) stubbornness to refuse to allow over one million Hebrew slaves to leave Egypt peacefully. The Indus River civilization, known as the Harappa civilization, was located in present-day Pakistan, appearing about 1500 B.C.
Modern excavations of skeletal remains suggest that the people were tall, with elongated faces and dark hair, similar to people in the Mediterranean i??area (Greece, Italy, Crete).They spoke a language belonging to the Indo-European family of languages. The priests were both religious and military leaders and ruled from walled citadels in the major cities. The Chinese today consider this river basin to be the cradle of Chinese civilization and refer to the river as a€?the mother river.a€? It has an east-i??west extension of about 3,000 miles from the Kulun Mountains in the west to the Pacific Ocean on the east, and a north-south extension of 684 miles.
It is probable that they moved into the Yellow River area after the Tower of Babel event and retained the knowledge of God received from Noah and his offspring. It had elaborate drainage and sewage systems superior to those in many parts of modern India today. They utilized and brought to greater development a writing system on clay tablets, called cuneiform, borrowed from earlier groups in the area.A  Cuneiform (from the Latin cuneus, three-sided wedge) used wedge-shaped markings made with bamboo pens on soft clay. The entire cultural and economic life of the nation was built upon the flooding of the Nile River.
Modern excavations of skeletal remains suggest that the people were tall, with elongated faces and dark hair, similar to people in the Mediterranean area (Greece, Italy, Crete).They spoke a language belonging to the Indo-European family of languages.
And it does so in an unusual way, blurring the cafe with the public space of South Wharf Promenade. Housed in a heritage-listed cargo shed, it occupies the site of a former - you guessed it - boatbuilding yard. And on the day I visited they did - cyclists wheeled their bikes, people strolled through on their way along the promenade, others meandered down to Polly Woodside. The facility consists of seven training rooms, each separated by operable wall that can be opened to expand the rooms and to accommodate large assemblies.
Work bars and unassigned workstations are also part of the layout to allow flexibility among the employees. These 3 offices would utilise shared amenities including support storage and utility areas.
Natural sealed concrete, timber veneer in reception, boardroom and workplace café, and custommade natural oil finished walnut hardware to glazed doors with black powder-coated connectors. A combination of 1 and 2 bedroom apartments will be arranged on each floor ranging in size from 45sqm to 80sqm excluding balconies.
The current project involves the refurbishment to the theatre and foyer that are essential to the visitor experience, with consideration to lighting, replacement of all VIP and general seating and refurbishment of finishes inside and outside of the theatre environment. HBO+EMTB worked with Deakin and the team to complete the project within budget which has allowed the university to re-invest further into the life of the building with new landscape works to the building surrounds. Individual zones for each agency have been created across the floor plate through colour, branding and careful planning. The level of amenity was increased with a large residents’ lounge and function room as well as a gym and a pool. Additionally, the lowest part of the building was designed to face Regatta Terrace in order to facilitate the north sun, which can then enter the garden court, the shared amenity with a pool and a gym, and the shade terrace. The open-ceiling, open-plan work area encourages staff collaboration and gives a spacious feel to the office. Other amenities include a gym, spa, home theatre, library, an outdoor pool with jacuzzi, and an indoor pool.
Innovation, practicality and youthfulness has invigorated the space which has been designed to enhance communication and relationships. The 100,000sqft new office, distributed over five floors (8th to 12th floor), houses corporate floors on the 8th and 9th floors with facilities like board rooms, collaborative areas, executive lounge and open office. To help with sound within the old building, acoustic panels where suspended over the area which created a lowered false ceiling. Custom furniture and joinery throughout add to the industrial feel and include rough-sawn timber table tops, industrial steel shelving and distressed steel stool and chair frames. The increased capacity comprises widening the existing motorway generally between Windsor Road, Baulkham Hills and Lane Cove Road, North Ryde and will deliver four new ramps to improve access to the motorway.
The results fed into an overall assessment of the additional potential for development in Warriewood Valley.
This will help attract a younger clientele and also allow the bar to easily service both bar and dining clients. The concourse level is made up of spectator facilities - twin grandstands facing playing fields on the east and west side of the building - and a learning centre. It effectively meets complex requirements, including the need to successfully accommodate the specific technical and security needs of each police department.
Levels 1 and 2 contain offices, meeting rooms, meal rooms, store rooms, workshops and amenities. The redevelopment has been awarded a 4 star Green Star Rating under the Green Building Council of Australia's Office Design V2 system.
To invigorate the precinct, a café area for both staff and the public has been designed for the ground floor. Shared facilities, such as the café, meeting and conference rooms and breakout areas link these discrete areas.
There is nothing so uncomfortable as being around people who dona€™t speak your language, and nothing more comfortable than finding others who do! Those who were constantly on the move and being chased from place to place by the stronger had less opportunity to develop a civilization or to benefit from natural resources.
The Spanish conquistadors, while few in number, were able to subjugate an entire Latin American continent due to their superior technology.
They cultivated fields of wheat, groves of date palms, developed herds of cattle, manufactured pottery and woven baskets, and developed a wide-ranging trade system using their sea-worthy boats.
He ruled by means of a powerful military nobility that lived off of a vast taxation network extracted by those whom they subjugated. As with the Vikings much later in history, the sea people were ruthless, relentless in their attacks, and arrived at unexpected times. The history of the Hebrews after the Exodus from Egypt is a story of constant conflict with the Philistines, including the story of Samson and Delilah, and the numerous battles between the Hebrews and Philistines under the Hebrew king, David. The Nile provided a fertile valley carved out of hot, sandy desert that was able to sustain a large civilization extending along the narrow river valley from the Mediterranean in the north to Ethiopia in the south.
A variety of causes have been suggested for his early death, and for many years it was suspected that he was murdered. He abandoned the new royal city built by his father at Akhanaten and moved the capitol back to the traditional capitol at Thebes.The royal celebrations and sacrifices to Amun were restored, winning him great favor with many of the people.
He was also the most prolific builder of monuments honoring his rule, as well as pyramids for the burial of his many children. The priests were intermediaries between the people and the numerous gods and goddesses discovered on clay seals and figurines. This period is also credited with the development of the Chinese five-tone music scale, the five-stringed zither, and pan-pipes.
Persia is supplying rockets to Hezbollah, American troops are in Babylonia, and Assyria questions whether it wants to be part of the new Iraq. Between the freeway and the river, it's home to a mixed bag of facilities of varying architectural quality - Jeff's Shed, the Melbourne convention centre, a Hilton hotel, a DFO shopping centre, the barque Polly Woodside and heritage-listed cargo sheds. It feels a bit rough and ready, a ''designed'' but casually thrown together collection of shelters behind an old shed. The location of the pavilions, and careful use of level changes creates a set of intimate outdoor spaces, each a slightly different size and with a slightly different character.
Also housed in refurbished heritage sheds, each has a strip of outdoor dining clearly separated from the public boardwalk by planters or bollards. In doing so, they also invite us to consider what other activities should be layered in as we build such grain back into redeveloped parts of the city.
The layout also includes two dining areas, a recreation area,a lounge area for the trainees, and a general office area for the Client’s learning and development team. The Client noted that they required a sophisticated fitout which would have a longevity of approximately 15 years as the previous fitout had the same lifespan due to the use of quality materials.
Social hubs were placed along the corridor to give the staff a great view of the courtyard.
The meeting rooms are made flexible with operable walls built inside, allowing users to convert small meeting rooms to a bigger one as they need it. As part of promoting environmental responsibility, locally sourced building materials, energy efficient lighting, and water efficient plumbing fixtures were used during the fit out. The 10th to 12th floors are dedicated to creation and application, including laboratories and packaging facilities for the flavour and fragrance departments. These added to the intimacy of the private dining space and created an aesthetic tension with the high peaked roof of the rest of the building. To finish, nautical maps of Wellington, which were hand-stained by the designers, were fixed to the walls to help apply an aged-look. The Bonville Upgrade is a unique section of the Pacific Highway with high ecological and scenic value. And Christian missionaries from Europe and the United States armed with computers, flashlights, and modern medicines, encountered stone age tribesmen in the islands of the Pacific as late at the end of the 20th century.
They developed a system that divided a circle into units of sixty, from which we today get our minute composed of sixty seconds and a system of counting based upon the unit of ten. Two of the consequences were (1) a confusion of languages, and (2) a huge flood that lasted for seven days and seven nights. But they were described as being primarily a nomadic people who were never conquered, refused to live in houses, and moved frequently from place to place. One of their number who had gained prominence in Egypt, Joseph, was able through his position to ensure their safe move into Egypt. Eventually they were controlled by the Egyptians who at times extended their control northward to Syria. This was not a monotheism that resulted from special revelation granted by the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, but developed from his angry response to all those who belittled him when he was a boy. But more recent examination of his mummified remains indicate that he had severe scoliosis, a broken leg that had become infected, and probably died from several genetic diseases, caused by the fact that his mother was one of his fathera€™s sisters. He fathered at least 80 sons and 60 daughters, all with the purpose of leaving behind a royal line and a successor to the throne. Central avenues were 30 feet wide with narrow streets running through the residential areas. Knowledge of the Aryans comes primarily from a series of stories called vedas passed down orally in India. Fertility was seemingly a major emphasis of the Harappa religion and was the cause of the veneration of sacred animals, especially bulls. The vast area of fertile soil and extensive forests was fueled by tremendous amounts of soil that annually washed down from the Himalayas to the Indian Ocean. Recent studies now propose that it was a change in the path and frequency of typhoons that brought the decline of the Harappa civilization.
It merges with the Yangtze River as it nears the Pacific Ocean to form a vast and fertile plain. Oracle bones were simply that: bones on which cracks in the bones were deciphered by oracles who added written pictographs for interpretation.
He also developed vast wheat and barley fields, groves of date palms, and under his leadership Babylon became a central power in Mesopotamia. Central avenues were 30 feet wide with narrow streets running through the residential areas.A  Large granaries were built to hold surplus wheat and barley. New pavilion structures cluster in the old yard between the shed and Duke and Orr's Dry Dock, Polly Woodside's home. The Client’s design brief for the facility called for a contemporary look that will help instill a sense of pride among new employees and will enhance their training experience.
Considerations were made with the design to select a finishes palette that suits the demographic in this area.
Work components comprised Environmental Assessment documentation, concept and detailed design and construction supervision. The weaker tended to move out farther, and the stronger tended to settle down more quickly and claim their space. Ur was a community of moon-worshippers and from among them God called out Abraham and his family to become the father of all who have faith (Romans 4).
They practiced taxation, conquest of neighboring peoples, slavery, and developed an early monarchial form of government. A Sumerian king, Ziusudra, survived the flood in a large boat, in which he preserved the seeds of plants and life. There they were eventually enslaved by the Egyptians, and they remained slave for over 400 years.
The southern section, Judah, with its capitol, Jerusalem, was invaded, captured, and exiled by Babylon under Nebuchadnezzar in 586 B.
Eventually, however, the sea people were able to settle along the Mediterranean coastline of the land of Canaan and were known as the Philistines.
They possessed a written language, but deciphering the script used is still in its early stages. Estimates now available from satellite imagery shows a ridge of fertile soil up to 20 feet deep, 10 miles wide and 100 miles long that straddles the Indus River. The pattern of the annual typhoons gradually moved increasingly eastward and the people followed the rainfall in scattered, smaller groups. Because only 10% of the Chinese land is productive for food, the Yellow River basin was crucial in the development and survival of the Chinese people. The urban design sensitively and successfully integrates new and existing urban elements such as noise walls and retaining walls.
It was with Abraham that God made his redeeming covenant that resulted in the coming of Jesus into the world as Savior.
But the Hebrews for the most part lived under a series of male and female Hebrews judges, and then a series of kings. Because they were viewed as gods in the flesh, they strove to keep the royal bloodline pure through marriage between brothers and sisters.
In addition to the rich alluvial soil, water was plentiful from typhoons that annually dumped immense amounts of rainfall on the area. In addition, the fact that the Harappaa€™s bronze tools and weapons were inferior in design and quality to those manufactured in Egypt and Mesopotamia may also have resulted in invasions as the cities declined in population.
The river gained its name from the color of the mud and silt that flows from the Kulun Mountains.
Sumer was located near to where the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers merge and flow into the Persian Gulf. Both the veneration of bulls and the use of the lotus position were later developed further in Hinduism and Buddhism in India. She was the daughter of Akhenaten and his favorite wife, Nefertiti The result was two daughters who both died in infancy.
