Adding a rustic element within your home, Manetti Terracotta elevates interior spaces. Manufactured by Cotto Manetti for Artedomus, the tile contributes to the distinct character of View House by Archier.

In View House, Archier employs Manetti Terracotta as an honest and robust material that will age gracefully over time. As used in the View House entryway to counterpart the black brick façade, the reddish material aims to balance and warm your home. The tile also features in the downstairs bathroom, where its warming quality is amplified by a mirror placed opposite, allowing its presence to be seen from any perspective.

Before the terracotta tile reaches your home, it undergoes a process of slight refinement. After baking, the tile is washed with a gentle mixture of phosphoric acid and water to rid the surface of any white flecks. Then, once the tile is dry, a sealer is applied. The visual effect of the tile depends upon the type of sealer used, with some sealers enhancing the depth of the colour but a solvent-based, penetrating sealer will not change the appearance of the material. Authentic terracotta tiles traditionally feature a rough edge, therefore, if the design for your home requires a two-millimetre grout joint, the edge will need to be shaven. In following Italian tradition, incorporating a wider grout joint to the design of your home will respond to the roughness of the edge.

With the Cotto Manetti family creating the first same-named tiles in 1780, the current production methods are steeped in tradition and capture centuries of success. Supplying Manetti Terracotta, Artedomus has the privilege of bringing a piece of family history into your home.

Responding to the issue of housing in Australia, Breathe Architecture creates some of the most sustainable homes in the country. Nightingale 1.0 is a carbon-neutral development, relying upon its own renewable source of energy to function.

The architecture of Nightingale 1.0 suggests that the complex will contain some of Melbourne’s most sustainable homes. Occupying the ground floor is a double-height commercial space, built from recycled brick as well as old steel and glass warehouse windows. In the entryway of the building, a connection to nature is emphasised with vines positioned to the side of the structure, allowing the greenery to grow against the wall.

Appliances by Fisher & Paykel contribute to the residences becoming some of Australia’s most sustainable homes. Aligning itself with the vision of a fossil-fuel-free complex, the company provides nine function electric ovens and sustainable 60-centimetre induction cooktops. A hidden double draw dishwasher is added to complement a seamless interior aesthetic.

Most importantly, the apartments of Nightingale 1.0 are some of the most sustainable homes available because they benefit from a renewable energy system embedded in the building. Comparing the system to a fossil fuel alternative, the renewable energy is ultimately cheaper, rewarding residents for their eco-consciousness.

By following the philosophy of ‘build less, give more’, Breathe Architecture is able to establish some of the most sustainable homes in the country. As a cost-effective, liveable solution to the problems facing the housing industry, Nightingale 1.0 shifts the perception of apartment living to give the concept significant long-term value.

A modern and minimal apartment building, 231 Napier Street is designed by Edition Office for Milieu. Carefully designed with reference to the history of its site, the modern and minimal apartment building is comprised of eleven contemporary apartments, each expressing a sense of material honesty.

Located in the heart of Fitzroy and surrounded by culture, 231 Napier Street occupies a tranquil pocket of space, making it an escape from the bustle of city life. The modern and minimal apartment building is bordered by Gertrude, Smith and Brunswick Streets just north of the city.

The architectural detail of 231 Napier Street emerges from a close study of the built history of Fitzroy. “We studied the materiality of Fitzroy’s historic buildings, their relief patterns, the composition of windows and doors to the façade, and the rhythm of party walls that line the streetscape,” says Aaron Roberts, Director at Edition Office. The resulting modern and minimal apartment building strongly connects to its neighbouring context.

Internally, 231 Napier Street celebrates pared-back luxury. Full-height glazing enables the modern and minimal apartment building to borrow visual space from outside whilst bespoke joinery and an open plan layout maximises living space and encourages the circulation of fresh air through each home.
Reflecting a belief in refined simplicity and civic responsibility, shared by Milieu and Edition Office, 231 Napier Street stands as a modern and minimal apartment building that pays homage to its architectural context.

Rowena Parade House is a modern house renovation, exploring the intersections between older heritage homes and modern, newer additions. With the intent to craft a sanctuary, or a private oasis, Technē has made considered, purposeful architectural design choices when integrating the older sections of the home with the new; the structure blurs the boundaries between each in order to create a modern and harmonious merging of forms.

Located in Richmond, in the inner city of Melbourne, Rowena Parade House is composed of a red brick heritage half, contrasting against a sleeker and modern house renovation. The architecture balances the two contrasting halves, working to create a warm and comfortable environment. As a modern house renovation, Rowena Parade House celebrates its original red brick structure. The dream home, as a modern house renovation, respects the original and authentic heritage architecture, where contemporary elements have been featured within the interior design, joinery and details. The joinery was treated as elevated furniture – hero pieces, such as the stone kitchen bench, shine throughout design. Inside, combinations of materials are used to celebrate the continual theme of blending – brick walls, a concrete floor, a timber ceiling, veneer and stone joinery.

The house tour showcases the painted mural located in the garden, as well as the dynamic interplay between the interior and exterior elements, made more apparent by the addition – a modern house renovation. Light reflects within the internal areas from the silver steel sculpture situated in the backyard and entertaining area.

The dream house features open plan living, kitchen and dining underneath the original roofing that, along with the front façade and chimneys, was able to be retained. The furniture speaks to a modern interpretation. Refined interior design aspects are showcased throughout with the use of circular detailing – this theme appears through the joinery and links back to the softer furniture pieces and the round window feature at the front of the house.

Envisioning an elegant home inclined towards the raw and robust, Olive Cooke and Henry Tervenski exemplify how to use stone in your bathroom in crafting Base Camp Ewingsdale. Utilising natural stone by Artedomus, the main bathroom and master ensuite are individually defined.

Knowing how to use stone in your bathroom can allow you to create interiors that are both aesthetically superior and capable of standing the test of time. Combined with textures such as fabric, timber and plaster, natural stone contributes to a subtle selection of materials underpinned by a surprising sense of durability. Correctly chosen, the stone can have a transformative effect upon a bathroom space.

In Base Camp Ewingsdale, the main bathroom features Artedomus Travertine Zena. Neutral-toned grout – an effective yet understated detail – seamlessly blends the joints between the tiles, as well as the holes in the travertine itself. With its stone edges visually blurred by the grout, the bathroom proposes a compelling feeling of softness, making it a prime example of how to use stone in your bathroom.

The master ensuite champions a palladiana style of stonework. Large pieces of natural stone are joined to smaller connective pieces, creating a visually dynamic and unified image. Olive and Henry select a grey grout to function as a meeting point between the various tones.

Providing maintenance and installation tips, Artedomus offers expertise in how to use stone in your bathroom. Acidic and caustic cleaning products should be avoided, dismissed in favour of a PH-neutral option that does not harm the polish of the stone nor the effectiveness of the sealer.

During the process of renovation, knowing how to use stone in your bathroom strongly influences the end result. Base Camp Ewingsdale exemplifies the ability of natural stone to unify interior design and architecture, allowing a singular design intent to shine through.

Traditionally, homes and pre-fabricated house's situated in the Australian landscape relied upon an imported architectural design from Europe, imposing on the landscape and unsuitable for the rural living experience. Courtyard House is a pre-fabricated house by CHROFI that challenges this former standard, instead embracing the harshness of the Australian environment.

The home works quietly by blending into its environment. The modules that make up the structure stand side-by-side and are linked together by a central courtyard. This alters the home’s sense of space, as the views extend through the rooms in the pre-Fabricated house and then further out into the landscape, successfully connecting interior and exterior areas.

As a pre-Fabricated house, the materiality of the building was dictated by weight, as the house was transported to the site on the back of a truck. Building a pre-Fabricated house within a controlled off-site environment offers ability to speed up construction times and manage wastage.

As prefabricated houses are built under a roof offsite, the home itself is protected from the elements while vastly minimising the impact to the site. For Courtyard House, CHROFI was drawn to Australian hardwood for the primary cladding; its natural finish speaking to the surrounding landscape of gumtrees.

An exploration into the journey of building a home, the work of Whiting Architects and how their vision for the project has seamlessly integrated contemporary design into the heritage fabric of the original Brighton home.

This feature video and interview takes viewers on a journey through the stunning interiors of the Connect Six project, allowing them to truly understand the design and building process behind the project through the testimonies of those who created it.

We speak to Steven Whiting, founding director of Whiting Architects, and Josie Somerville, project architects on the Connect Six project, who give an in-depth breakdown of their process into the contemporary design that they've applied to their Connect Six project. Whiting Architects wanted to create a modest contemporary addition that perfectly matched the original heritage façade.

Ultimately Connect Six is a triumph in understanding the process of building and designing a contemporary home and integrating with Australian the existing heritage architecture.

Gesticulating Wildly is a contemporary home created in collaboration between architects Carter Williamson, builders Artechne and interior designers Arent & Pyke. Fondly taking its name from its appearing like “a tall man standing at the back of the room, gesticulating wildly”, the home manages to respect its heritage Federation bungalow whilst celebrating a modern architectural addition at the rear of the house.

The contemporary add-on allows the new living spaces to open out onto the garden and outdoor landscaping. The windows are especially important in framing the areas of the landscape, bringing them into conversation with the interior spaces; they directly influence the spatial flow and operation of the house. The architectural structure romantically bends around an established tree that sits in the centre of the block, acting as a pivot point between the suburban and urban ideals expressed by the interior and architectural design.

Artechne worked closely with architect Carter Williamson and interior designers Arent & Pyke to ensure the contemporary addition of the home was purposefully executed. The materials in the house echo those found in the original building, specifically the use of slate, brick and timber floors for both architecture and interior design. The sections that are the most intriguing are the interior and exterior spaces where the new and the old speak to one another. The joinery throughout the interior is a considered element of the new addition, referencing the original details of the house where appropriate. The finer aspects of the architecture and interior design are the meeting of these materials, coming together to create enticing conversation for the clients to enjoy in the rituals of the everyday life in the house.

The new contemporary home, located in the inner west Sydney suburb of Ashfield, is the product of a powerful and well-defined partnership between the owners, architects, interior designers and builders. This process is realised and represented through each facet of the home; Gesticulating Wildly showcases how many people, all with vibrant and innovative solutions, together can contribute to completing the multifaceted puzzle of designing a contemporary home.

Embracing nature, Hawkesbury Farmhouse allows a family of 4 the space to grow. Designed by LiteraTrotta Architecture, the modern farmhouse is both a raw and refined dwelling.

Situated east of Hawkesbury River on an elevated piece of land, Hawkesbury Farmhouse is oriented west, facing the distant Blue Mountains. Assessing the pre-existing home, LiteraTrotta Architecture saw an opportunity to establish a modern farmhouse that would maximise the striking views available and feature moments of interior intimacy.

The residential and landscape architecture of the modern farmhouse celebrate the panoramic view. A light, angular roof form frames the external vista, whilst the wet edge of the pool visually cuts through the landscape. Inside the house, a curved timber screen delays the revelation of the view, enhancing its subsequent appreciation.

Responding to the extended floorplan of Hawkesbury Farmhouse, LiteraTrotta Architecture opens the roof to create a generous lightwell. The act allows natural light to touch the innermost parts of the modern farmhouse, establishing a feeling of intimacy and prompting the introduction of natural greenery into the interior.

Centred on points of difference, Hawkesbury Farmhouse balances raw and elegant characteristics. LiteraTrotta Architecture does justice to the dual nature of the modern farmhouse, ensuring that the sophisticated interior sits in harmony with the traditional farmhouse features.

Gordons Bay House by Secret Gardens and Milieu Creative is a waterfront family home with the perfect modern garden and landscape design to match.

Perched on a steep incline in picturesque Gordons Bay (Sydney, Australia), a tiered landscape and garden design from Secret Gardens sees the outdoor spaces match the uncompromising and site-specific house they surround.

A passion project of sorts for Secret Gardens founder Matt Cantwell, the brief for the waterfront family home was simple but demanding in its own right. “The garden and landscape design needed to complement the architectural style of the waterfront family home, but the clients also wanted something unique and confronting,” Matt explains.

Working within the inherited footprint, the project saw the architectural and interior renovation of a previously closed-off home, in which Davina Bester of Milieu Creative injected a sense of warmth and connection to the site through materiality, openness and key texturally refined elements to create the new waterfront family home for the clients, her brother Aidan and wife, Aleks.

Opening up to its ocean view overlooking Gordans Bay, the connected living, dining and kitchen space welcomes in the waterfront views and the aural and aromatic additions that come with it.

Achieving a balance of intimacy and ambition, a feat made all the more impressive by the project’s inherent challenges, Secret Gardens have created a dramatic and textural modern garden and landscape response to the site and the home’s architecture.

Located in the exclusive bay area of Sydney Harbour, Sand Castle is a warm and playful three-storey house set apart by its detailing and calming views of the water. A home designed as a sand castle, the residence was devised by Luigi Rosselli Architects and Raffaello Rosselli Architect; the experience of designing the home is fondly described by Luigi Rosselli as sonata for piano – created by four hands. The building stands tall on its 45-degree slope; the site’s steep hill meant that access throughout the build was difficult. Likewise, the site was composed of sand, causing the ground to become considerably unstable, presenting multiple challenges throughout construction.

As a home designed as an architectural sand castle, being connected to the site and its surrounding context allows the building to stand out against its neighbours. From street level, the home appears as a wall of bricks, submerged into the immediate greenery. Access from the street is via a spiral staircase, which rises above a retaining wall, and when arriving at the top there is an opportunity to look back over the exceptional views. Entry to the home is also available through a lift, which was constructed by tunnelling into the site.

Spaces within the sand castle home are dictated by unusual angles, working in contrast to the solid nature of the built form. The spaces find balance, as would a sculpture, with furniture adding to the layered elements of the residence. The addition of shimmering textures and pops of colour create fresh interactions, grounding the home whilst keeping a certain element of surprise. The styling and interior design by Alwill Interiors creates contrasting colours and textures to the natural palette of the main material, brick. The irregular intricacies of the handmade brick interplays against the smoothness of the honeyed oak joinery and flooring.

The courtyard, which embraces the northern sun, remains the heart of the sand castle home. This is an interesting and distinctive comparison between the very steep front and the flatter plane of the house. The landscape design by Dangar Barin Smith adds to the privacy of the property. Approximately 99% of the plants that are used are native; this reasserts the garden as a significant factor in re-healing the land after the process of construction.

Redfern Terrace is the home of an award-winning interior designer, Kirsten Stanisich. Co-Director of Sydney-based interior architecture practice Richards Stanisich, Kirsten’s home is located in the inner-city suburb of Redfern. A strong sense of community exists in the urban suburb, which is defined by a leafy outlook and warm energy, and this is reflected throughout Kirsten’s interior design choices.

Kirsten founded Richards Stanisich with Jonathan Richards, and the interior of her home is a reflection of her dedication to her craft. Redfern Terrace, as the home of an award-winning interior designer, concentrates on the finer details of the space, creating a quiet refuge from the inner-city environment.

Light plays an integral role in creating the calm and tranquil atmosphere of the house, allowing a sense of recharge and purpose. The garden space, despite its small scale, plays an important role in bringing light into the home. The front of the house faces east and receives the gentle glow of the morning sun, lighting the heritage stained-glass windows in the front door and dowsing the hallway in gentle colour. The two large glass doors that lead out into the back garden allow sunlight to fill the dining space in the afternoon. This offers a fresh way for light to interact with the space, unusual for a terrace house.

Whilst the layout of Redfern Terrace stayed the same, Kirsten – as an interior designer – was focused on the joinery, fixtures and finishes to bring the home to life. The contemporary pieces – including the e15 light fitting that matches the soft pink and lilac blue colours of the stain-glass windows – and the traditional aspects of the home speak to one another. The interior of the house acts as a foundation for Kirsten to continue to react to and build upon. As the home of an award-winning interior designer, Redfern Terrace highlights the interplay between the old and the new, exploring conversation between all elements in a three-dimensional and authentic way.

As an architectural coastal home, Gordons Bay Residence by Popov Bass experiments with light, material and proportion to craft a sophisticated family home. The modernist-inspired dream house opens with a direct view through the interior and out towards the bay. This was achieved by lowering the living room to allow the main entrance to have a framed view of the blue waters beyond.

The house tour showcases the grand entryway, which was designed to link the building’s two levels together through a double height ceiling. Likewise, the bright blue tiles on the walls of the exterior entrance indicate a degree of contemporary playfulness that informs the home’s philosophy and feeds into its architecture, interior design and furniture. The furniture featured throughout the interior spaces align with this modernist aesthetic.

The living area, imbued with moments of intimacy with deliberate furniture placements, boasts unmatched views out to the bay through large glass windows. However, light is also significantly introduced into the living room through skylights. This was deliberately incorporated into the architecture and ensures that light within the space is diffused evenly throughout the day, especially as Gordons Bay Residence is an architectural coastal home. This allows the interior spaces to balance light with functionality, inspired by the structure’s theme of contemporary simplicity.

As an architectural coastal home, the design speaks to the surrounding natural environment. The house tour features a modernist, raw palette, as the main theme linking both the architecture and interior design is the home’s textured materials. The design of the dream home focuses on liveability and, as an architectural coastal home, Gordons Bay Residence needed resiliency against the harsh Australian landscape; all materials are immediately exposed to the elements due to its location. Concrete is used to combat the climatic conditions and corrosive bayside environment. As an architectural coastal home, the design also needed to utilise materials with textures and finishes that could change with the environment and endure. The concrete is paired with honey-coloured timbers and restrained detailing throughout the interior design.

The Kitchen Garden house by Owen Architecture, a project that evolved through a process of storytelling to reconnect the home to its site and create a home with a garden and kitchen designed as one.

Owen Architecture director Paul Owen explains that the feel and the story of a space is something that evolves and is part of a narrative that is created with the client. “When we meet the clients and present design ideas, we’re essentially getting them to imagine how their life would play out in the design.”

During the design process, Owen Architecture identified that the main living spaces in the house were detached from the site, meaning that the back yard was not used. Here Paul saw an opportunity to create a home with a garden and kitchen designed as one.

In furnishing the living spaces, Toby Scott says he drew on his knowledge of the clients’ personalities to bring colour and texture into the space. Pairing a brown leather armchair with a terracotta sofa and a pink rug stemmed from knowing that the clients weren’t afraid to try something different. The round rug was a response to the round kitchen island bench, which was itself an experimental move on the part of Owen Architecture.

Evolving through a process of story-telling, the Kitchen Garden House transforms an original Queenslander into a vibrant contemporary family home that is now open and connected to both the garden, kitchen and interior spaces.

From its elevated position on the headland above Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Eagle’s Nest by Ian Bennett Design Studio is a concrete dream home which balances openness to the exceptional views of the ocean, headlands and Pittwater with a strong and grounded form that explores the nuanced qualities of concrete.

The experience within the concrete dream home is defined by two key elements – the expansive yet carefully curated views over the water and the coastline, and the concrete that encapsulates each space. While the architecture is first and foremost designed to capture the view, a different experience of the view is created over the two levels.

Downstairs, the panoramic view over the water is another reference to the central inspiration of Brazilian modernism, yet upstairs, where expansive stretches of glazing would be the most obvious response, Ian Bennett was conscious to offer a more nuanced and controlled experience of the views.

The commitment of all involved to the vision and integrity of the design of the home is palpable in the final result. From the deep and considered exploration of materials and contrast of concrete, to the uncompromising approach to overcoming challenge after challenge whilst maintaining the meticulous attention to every detail, Eagle’s Nest commits absolutely to the creation of a concrete dream home worthy of its truly unique site.

An architect’s own home can be a challenge to design, with no brief or boundaries to adhere to, leaving the architect’s skill set and true style exposed for all to see.

This converted warehouse is an architect’s own home, designed by and for Rob Mills of Rob Mills Architecture and Interior Design. Located in Armadale, a Melbourne suburb known for its character and village atmosphere, the house was created through a warehouse conversion, which gave the architect plenty of scope and space to design a piece of architecture that truly reflected his likes and wishes.

Harnessing this space in the converted warehouse home, the house carries over three levels, with an apartment, sauna and garage at ground level, living in the middle, and bedrooms above. The interior design uses a minimal palette of stone, timber, stucco, glass and metal, with brass playing a large part in the design, especially in the kitchen where it is used extensively and effectively.

This glamour and drama are at the heart of the interior design of the converted warehouse. A spiral staircase adds a sculptural element to the house, while also providing an efficient method of travelling between floors. The office, which has an English aesthetic with lush yet classic-style furniture, features timber shutters that close off to create a focused environment or open to let in plenty of natural daylight.

Close connections to nature were important to the architect, Rob Mills of Rob Mills Architecture and Interior Design. A water feature trickles through the living space of the converted warehouse, providing a meditative element to the room. Materials were chosen for their non-toxicity, with stucco walls specified as a natural alternative to paint.

An architect’s own converted warehouse home, Armadale Residence features designer furniture throughout that is carefully chosen to subtly fit with the shine and glamour of the materials.

A coastal home with a garden that punctuates its curves and amplifies its impact, Cove House was designed in 1969 by architect Ruben Lane and finished in 1973. Sitting resplendent on the Cronulla coastline and deserving of grounds equally as impressive, the residents of this coastal home briefed Secret Gardens to make bold choices and think outside the square.

With great respect for the existing design, curves and angles from the exterior of the house, as well as the interior, have been repeated. Large white curves of the coastal home are duplicated in the garden, with white concrete circles set in contrast to the fresh, green lawn. Cacti and round stepping stones draw you in from the street and over a bridge with a koi pond below.

On the sloping, northern side of the house, a courtyard looks out across the water and curved seating encompasses a built-in barbecue. Also overlooking the water is the swimming pool with a glass walled end and thoughtfully curved glass fencing. Considered and original garden design to rival the magnificent water views, this coastal home is elevated from incredible to iconic.

The result sees one of Sydney’s most amazing homes now accompanied by a suitably provocative garden, it is clear that Secret Gardens has achieved making this coastal and iconic home an even more celebrated destination.

A seamless blend between new and old, Marathon House by Neil Architecture renovation of a dream home in the leafy Melbourne suburb of Hawthorn East to create a modern family home. The original Marathon House was built in the late 1800s and reflects the Victorian neighbourhood in its aesthetic. The restoration and renovation of the home combines a love of historical features that made the original structure so endearing, as well as incorporating innovative and inspired solutions to create a modern family dream home.

Marathon House’s interior is made up of a series of spaces. The front rooms were retained to celebrate the detailed features and fireplaces. Further into the house, light hits the rooms in a way that enhances the expansive material palette. The archways play an integral role throughout the home’s narrative; the original Victorian archway at the front of the dream home was incorporated into the extension and renovation, seen in the double-glazed glass doors at the end of the hall, as well as the oversized brick archways in the garden. Reinforcing the connection to the landscape, the outdoor archways will one day be covered in the rich green of Boston ivy.

Neil Architecture, together in collaboration with Ben Scott Garden Design, developed a layout for the renovation of a dream home that incorporates the exterior gardens, framing them in the interior spaces to make private garden views. A key feature of the front landscaping, in keeping with the green streetscape, is the large date palm that was relocated to the centre of the garden of the home.

Classic features, such as the reinstated doorbell of the original home, mingle well with the modern aspects of Marathon House, neither fighting for dominance. Features, including the INAX ceramic tiling sourced from Artedomus that came from Japan or the dark marble pedestal basin from Artedomus, blend into the interior of the dream home with a quiet confidence. Recycled bricks were used throughout the renovation to create an aged illusion for the extension and a seamless blend between new and old of the dream home, as each considered material speaks back to the original design before the renovation.

Marathon House by Neil Architecture sees the renovation of a dream home to create a modern family home.

Located in Caulfield on the outskirts of inner Melbourne, Gottlieb House is an iconic concrete house with a unique design that makes an important contribution to Australian architecture. Wood Marsh Architecture designed the house in 1989 for a family who placed full trust in the architects to create a three- to four-bedroom house that would not give anything away from the street.

Taking this brief in hand, the award-winning architects created an iconic concrete house with a design inspired by the art and sculpture of North American modernist artists Richard Serra and Donald Judd. Looking to the themes of these artists’ work, the architects treated the volumes of the house as separate components and created a sense of consistency between inside and out using a limited palette of concrete with a cement render, glass and stainless steel. With no guttering, the front of the house has been left to patina, creating some interesting visual effects on the concrete exterior.

The staircase foyer in the Melbourne house is a cylinder-like form that is lit from above via a circular skylight. A glazed sculptural spine splits the building and allows shafts of light to enter the interiors. The bedrooms are contained in boxes that are lowered into the ceiling of the living room below, which gives the impression of a double height space in other areas.

The clients asked Wood Marsh Architecture to also design all the furniture for the home and requested a large enough space to entertain a party of 300 people. The furniture is as unique as the house itself and adds to the sculptural aesthetic of the building.

The resulting design by these award-winning architects is an iconic concrete house that adds to the repertoire of Australian architecture.

Gottlieb House by Wood Marsh Architecture also features across 24 pages in Issue No. 5 of The Local Project's print publication - https://thelocalproject.com.au..../publication/issue-0
