Argall Features in ‘The Local Project’

4 August 2023

'Outbuilding, with deep garden' published in The Local Project.

The Local Project is a print and digital publication that delves into the realm of Architecture and design across Australia, New Zealand, and North America. Recently, one of our Agrall projects made a feature, with an article published on the ‘Outbuilding, With Deep Garden,’ an eye-catching architectural endeavor by Barracco + Wright Architects, with our team serving as the structural engineers.

The building’s exterior is instantly intriguing, entirely clad in glass bricks, supported by the internal framework of engineered structural steel. Our team used their expert knowledge and experience to model the project, with a thorough focus on minimizing frame deflection to ensure the preservation of the glass bricks’ integrity and prevent any cracking.

This project stands out as a one-of-a-kind undertaking, and we take immense pride in showcasing it. For a more in-depth look, take a look at our dedicated post on our project page or visit our LinkedIn. Discover the innovative fusion of architecture and engineering that makes this creation a work of art.

Argall was founded in 2017 by Andrew Gall, an engineer with a passion for complex design and breaking the mould. His work experience as a senior structural engineer across a variety of project disciplines made him realise there was a real need for a bespoke people and service-oriented structural engineering consultancy that would inspire sustainability practices and innovation often lacking in big companies.

This is over and above his experience in traditional procurement roles, his work with builders in the design and construct field, managing projects in sport, tertiary education, the arts and zoological fields, as well as community, commercial, residential and multi- residential enterprises. With such a wealth of knowledge and understanding of different design methodologies, he has the expertise to challenge the status quo in his new venture.
