More from Marc&Co

By building in under the original house and adding a two level extension to the rear, Brisbane architects Marc&Co have increased the usable footprint of this Queenslander style house while maximising the space available for a garden at the rear of the inner city block. From the street the old home retains its original features and now contains the bedrooms while the additions allow for the open plan living with the indoor/outdoor connection so prized by Australian families.

Winter in the subtropics

I really can't complain. Winter comes and goes here with only some minor bickering on my part. Days rarely drop to zero degrees and climb into the 20s with monotonous regularity. And I can't think of a better place to spend my winter days than at a beachside getaway just a couple of hours north of where I live. Welcome to 180 Degrees Noosa. I'm packing a summer wardrobe ... and maybe just a jumper or two.

Stalking Sydney

I'm stalking a lovely family home in inner city Sydney. The Woollahra property is by Dowse Architects with interiors by Anna Carin Design. Ah you say. You thought it looked familar. Yes I featured it a few years ago but it's great to see how the house has matured and to peek into other rooms not seen on the designer's website. Link here while it lasts.

Laid back mid century

Australia's Gold Coast is a tourist glitter strip with showy apartment blocks that grow ever higher and ostentatious McMansions devouring two, three or even more original holiday homes. How refreshing to see a mid century gem returned to its laid back 50's hipster glory with a mix of classic, contemporary and custom designed pieces by Brisbane-based Anju Designs. (Original architectural design by Bill Conrad, renovation by Paul Uhlmann Architects.)

Monday=coffee

Yes it's true. The only way I can kickstart the working week is with a very (very) large cup of coffee. I find it works even better if there is a cool, slightly industrial looking coffee house/cafe involved. I'm such a tragic that I'm known to get to a cafe very early then take the time to sit and drink it all in for the hour before work. Now if I lived in Melbourne, in the suburb of Prahran, I think I would just have perch myself on a stool in Tall Timber with its design by architectural and interior design studio Therefore, coffee on one side real newspaper on the other.
