Urban garden

Inner city living often means that a garden has to be multifunctional. Parking space, entertaining area, a place to relax, a little greenery to counteract the harsh urban landscape. A multifunctional oasis. If you can through in a small pool and a statement orange wall well things just got turned up a notch. Loving this St Kilda, Melbourne courtyard by Eckersley Garden Architecture.

Stalking where I've been before

I'm stalking a house I've featured before, the Balmain House by Fox Johnston, only this time I think I like the real estate photos better. The house seems to have mellowed, grown into its modern extension. Great to see a floor plan. Link here while it lasts.

Little Napier Street

Where else but Australia would a home owner sacrifice existing living space when renovating so they can squeeze in a pool in the backyard. This Little Napier Street house in Paddington, Sydney by Bureau SRH combines two historic terrace houses to create a family home where the line between inside and out is blurred and the kids just want to have fun. Happy Australia Day!

Stalking in the same street part 2

Here's my second house for the day. Remember the back story. Same suburb, same street, a few meters separate them. A timber cottage with just a touch of gingerbread about it but what's that I see? A modern extension (with self-contained studio) and a glass pool! It's almost tipping the balance in favour of this home. Which one is your favourite? Sandstone or gingerbread? Link here while it lasts.

Stalking in the same street part 1

First stalking of the year and I'm excited. (Beats chest. Bellows loudly. Frightens neighbour's children.) I'm in Rozelle, Sydney and but it's not just one home I'm stalking. It's two. Two houses, same suburb, same street, separated by scant meters. I'm partial to both, can't afford either but my love affair with small heritage cottages with architect extensions continues. First the sandstone house. Link here while it lasts.
