The villa is designed with two sets of parallel masses with another volume perched above, perpendicular to the former creating two courtyard spaces. The two courts, one to north and the other facing south resulted in a H-shape configuration.

All functions are programmed around these two courts so as to provide maximum unhindered views of the landscape from almost all habitable rooms. Strategically placing the pool to adjacent to the north court contained this space and formed the focus of the project, hence the name ‘center court’. Other smaller internal courts helped to achieve maximum natural daylight to interior spaces of the house.

Francesco Hayez was an Italian painter and printmaker, famous for his portrait painting and historical Romantic images. The son of a French fisherman, he was introduced to painting by one of his uncles, an antique dealer, Francesco Binasco. His uncle had wanted Hayez to become a painting restorer. In 1809 he won a scholarship that allowed him to study in Rome, where he studied both Antique art and the works of Raphael.

Hayez moved to Milan in 1823 where he quickly established himself at the centre of intellectual and aristocratic life. Though he explored biblical and fictional themes in his paintings, he also displayed a keen interest in Italian history, often depicting key contemporary political and social figures in historical settings. His later work marked a departure from the grander historical subjects of his earlier paintings and became devoted almost entirely to allegorical themes, often with strong political connotations.

This corner block in Mount Waverley presented a challenging opportunity to create the clients request for a resort style retreat. The design had to be orientation responsive as well as adequately setback to reduce any noise impact from busy Huntingdale Road. The design had to create plenty of family space for the parents and their three young adult children.

The site presented a rather significant fall from back to front of which required mindful consideration of the indoor connection to the outdoor space. The rear and north facing entertaining area was to be one level containing a swimming pool, deck areas and a Balinese Hut. These key design element allowed the front of the house to sit high on the site and create a striking appearance from the main road as well as capturing some beautiful upper level views from the Master Suite.

The internal courtyard in the centre of the home brings northern light flooding into the main living spaces while the outdoor living room is accessed via large, cornerless bi fold doors allowing for perfect indoor/ outdoor connection with the family and dining areas. The Kitchen features a large island bench and butler’s pantry which provides direct access into the garage.

Falcon 7X

Falcon 7X

 

From its inception, the Falcon 7X was destined to be a revolutionary aircraft, introducing business aviation to the industry’s first Digital Flight Control System. Like so many other aspects of the aircraft, its DFCS drew on Dassault’s 30 years of military experience, especially its Rafale and Mirage 2000 programs. The 7X would become the first business jet to use fighter jet technology with an elegant, whisper-quiet executive cabin.

Today, over 270 Falcon 7X aircraft are in service in 41 countries. The fleet has performed some 550,000 flight hours and presents excellent dispatch reliability. And a growing number of operators worldwide are discovering they need not compromise small-jet agility and efficiency for long-range comfort and capability. Now a mature and proven aircraft platform, the Falcon 7X is still the most advanced — still the business jet benchmark for the 21st century.

From nose to tail, wingtip to wingtip, the Falcon 7X is pure elegance, efficiency, and performance. The following specifications physically define the world’s most technologically advanced business jet.

Falcon 7X

The Falcon 7X is the most technologically advanced business jet in service anywhere in the world today. Sleek yet practical, it is redefining ownership, pilot and passenger performance. It is the new generation of business aircraft.

Unique flexibility allows the Falcon 7X to perform varied missions easily. And with fuel consumption 15-30% lower than other jets in its class, it dramatically lowers operating costs.

The Falcon 7X is designed to fly 5,950 nm (11,019 km), linking city pairs such as Paris-Tokyo, Shanghai-Seattle, New York-Jeddah, and Johannesburg-London, with a payload of eight passengers and three crew. With a .90 Mach Maximum Operating Speed (MMO), the Falcon 7X can also cover shorter distances to get you faster where you need to be.

When it comes to landing, slower is safer. At typical landing weight, the approach speed of the 7X is only 104 knots (193 km/h). It can land and stop in just 2,070 feet (630 m). As a result, it can access hundreds of airports other jets cannot, including those with hot and high conditions, steep approaches and stringent noise restrictions. The 7X is the only aircraft in its class able to reach New York, from London City Airport.

This high, wide, handsomely proportioned executive suite features three spacious lounge areas, 28 large windows, and acoustics technology that limits noise for a restful, more productive travel experience.

Beyond the peaceful hush, abundant natural light and spectacular views, the 7X cabin offers a breakthrough environmental system. At an altitude of 41,000 ft, passengers enjoy a comfortable cabin pressure of 3,950 ft. Climate controls keep temperature constant, within one degree. Air is humidified and refreshed. This is a cabin that enhances your well-being throughout a long flight — as well as your readiness for the long, challenging day that lies ahead upon arrival.

Dassault Falcon’s EASy flight deck is a revolutionary man-machine interface, which dramatically improves situational awareness, decreases pilot workload and enhances crew coordination. EASy II, its second generation, offers a host of new functionalities and features designed to further increase safety and situational awareness while taking advantage of next-generation technologies within the air traffic management system.

The Digital Flight Control System (DFCS) features three main flight computers that receive control inputs and direct control movement, backed up by three secondary computers. An analog computer controlling the two flight spoilers using rudder pedal displacement, and the trimmable horizontal stabilizer, via the pitch trim switch, provide the ultimate back-up in the event of computer failure.

The computers permit precise flight path control. Using the fighter-jet styled side stick controller, the pilot follows a single flight path vector (FPV) cue. The DFCS handles auto-trim adjustments, optimizes the configuration and provides stability augmentation.The DFCS’s computers also provide built-in flight envelope protection, allowing pilots to extract maximum aircraft performance and efficiency without risk of overstressing the aircraft.

They monitor pilot flight control inputs and prevent the aircraft from exceeding angle-of-attack, airspeed/Mach or load limits.This feature is invaluable in instances where maximum performance is needed such as when encountering wind shear or taking collision avoidance maneuvers.
