Term: CC MEANING: Otherwise known as a Construction Certificate, a CC is an approval that makes sure your plans comply with the Building Code of Australia and any other relevant standards. You’ll get a CC after your project has been approved, and before you start construction. CCs are issued by your certifier – either from the council or a private certifier.

Innovative structureContemporary architects will often employ innovative structure in response to a difficult site or to maximise a site’s characteristics, to attain sustainability, to harmonise with an older building, to be progressive in design and construction, among other reasons. Maddison Architects, responsible for designing this contemporary home in Melbourne’s Beaumaris, gave great consideration to the elevated seaside location of the site and its predominantly south-facing 270-degree views of Port Philip Bay. Seeking to work within the principles of ESD (Environmentally Sustainable Design), the architects split the building into two elements: a south-facing cantilevered PFC steel frame structure for the living zone and a two-storey north-facing structure for bedrooms. With a circulation zone in-between, the northern sun can penetrate all areas. It’s a seamless integration of architecture and interior design.

I like the stone bit on the left (not so much the right)

Love this as a connection from one side of the house to the other.
