Toorak House

Very little is revealed from the street. Hints are glimpsed along garden beds and walls. Once inside, the public areas of this Melbourne house open to a sunny courtyard blurring the boundary between in and out. A bluestone ledge runs around the room from courtyard to kitchen providing hearth, shelves and seating. Private areas look out to raised garden beds, screening and sheltering the spaces within. The Toorak House by AM Architecture.

The heart of a warehouse

In the inner city Sydney suburb of Lilyfield a garden grows. Behind an old brick facade in a building that once housed the "Oh Boy Candy Company" is a sweat treat, a green oasis. In the heart of a warehouse conversion by Virginia Kerridge is a space to breathe, to grow, to play, to see the sky, to connect. Solid and void, old brick and beam, sleek contemporary finishes, history and family home.

The landing library

A new kitchen and a staircase to the next floor. A simple design request with a fabulous outcome. Melbourne based Venn Architects believe space is what you make it. Their clever use of the transition up the staircase as a library is elegant and functional with a wonderful sense of space and light. No longer a kitchen diner. Perhaps a kitchen library?

The entertainer

With some clever rearranging of the layout and a high end finish the design team at London based Daniel Hopwood have transformed this apartment into an entertainer's dream. By moving the kitchen from the back into the double height open plan reception area the owners' now have the perfect stage for regaling their guests. A small, intimate library takes the kitchen's former space, perfect for TV viewing as well as reading. A rich, masculine bedroom, mezzanine office and stream lined bathroom complete the picture. Clever and compact, stylish and sleek.

Want to play?

If I was a child I couldn't wait to mess up this beautiful play area by Sydney architect Madeleine Blanchfield. Even if it wasn't a play area but my mum's chill out zone I still couldn't wait to mess it up.
