Perforated

Refreshingly white

There's something refreshingly cool about this Sydney house. It's whitest of white interiors bounce light around a once dark and confused warren of rooms while wide walls of windows drink in a stunning view over the water. Clean lined, contemporary, open plan, impeccably stylish. The only thing missing from these pictures is me. Quakers Bay House by Burley Katon Halliday.

A weekend home with ocean views

With views like this who cares what the house looks like?! But when it's as fabulous as this - BONUS! An interior landscape is created which merges into the surrounding external landscape. Materials and colours are drawn from the local environment and counterbalance the intense blue ocean hues. Natural timbers, local stone, textures tiles and muted stones are selected to mimic the surrounds. Selected paint and tile colours reflect the deep oranges and reds found in the local stone and local flora. The house is grand in scale, yet the spaces are relaxed yet sophisticated, modular and flexible. The balanced selection of imported and local furniture, lighting and materials celebrates the quality of local design within a global design environment. By FMD Architects.

Moonlight Cabin

I braved a shopping mall this morning. I lasted 30 minutes before running, screaming for my sanity, from the packed Christmas crowds. Mothers with shrieking toddlers in tow, elderly shoppers shuffling at snail's pace, gauche teenagers collecting in packs, frazzled partners fidgeting and furtive hipsters diving in and out before they can be seen in such a place. Blaring Christmas music, flashing sale signs, insistent kitchen gadget touts throwing themselves in my path, shopping trolleys with wonky wheels. At this time of year I'd love to escape to the solitude of a cabin, perched in the middle of nowhere, with only the wind to harry me. So if you're looking for a gift to give me a little stocking stuffer like Moonlight cabin by Melbourne-based Jackson Clements Burrows Architects would be perfect.
