Rove Concepts


Drew Heath Architects

Travelling home from work today I noticed the roads were quieter. That time of the year when those that can flee the city for the summer holidays. A great Australian tradition is to escape to the beach but I'm just as much at home fleeing to the cooler hills or down to the calm lakes and rivers.

Drew Heath has designed two simple hideaways I dream of owning. I love the spartan quality of the cabin in the bush but I'm drawn to the simple lines of the house boat as well. Luxury in life isn't counted in the number of rooms and the most expensive finishes. Luxury is having an escape from the cares of the world to enjoy the simple pleasures with your friends. Drew has a passion for low impact environmental buildings He is both architect and builder. He enjoys the intimacy of the hand built and the small scale. The website is spartan like his designs but to read more about the Zig Zag Cabin go here.


Rob Fiocca

Since buying my new digital SLR camera, my life has been pretty chaotic and I haven't had much of a chance to learn how to use it properly. When I come across photos as breathtaking as those of Rob Fiocca, I get such an itch to drop everything, get out my camera and start shooting.

Architect Prineas

"In a city like Sydney our greatest strength is our ability to maximise space and natural light through efficient, environmentally conscious planning. With a passion for aesthetics, we not only fulfill a project brief, we create beautiful places to live, work or visit." And it's true. Clean minimal lines, clever spatial planning and loads of light flooding in in unexpected ways are essential elements of the designs by Architect Prineas. Check out the unusual placement of windows that allow light in and maximise privacy as well as the clever placement of the flat screen TV on the outside of the kitchen island.
