Raw

A raw and edgy addition to an Art Deco home sees function contained within the exposed structure of the form. A limited palette of blacks, greys and blonde wood with exposed concrete, rendered walls and untreated plywood give a Scandinavian meets modern Australian feel. Lees House by Melbourne-based Rob Kennon Architects.

Pipe dream

This award-winning show garden by Melbourne-based Alison Douglas Design is just the inspiration I need for that awkward spot at the end of my garden. I just have to explain to my husband why I need to buy a large concrete culvert pipe.

PIPE DREAM is a hidden oasis in our busy city designed as an antidote to our epidemic of being time poor. The meditation moon gate/day bed, reflective water feature and fire pit are all created from concrete pipes. Concrete was chosen as a feature material to reference the ‘concrete jungle’ we inhabit ... Pipe Dream is a place to stop, meditate, reflect and breathe. As this is easier said than done one might call it a ‘Pipe Dream’.

Casa cool

I love Brazilian design. The work of their young architects and interior designers has a freshness, an irreverence, a sense of fun. It's a super cool mix of eras, of young and old, high and low. It provokes and cajoles. Casa Cor 2015 by Rio de Janeiro architectural firm Studio RO+CA.

Old school conversion

It is hard to believe this was once a school. This modern, bright and airy loft in Amsterdam is now home to a family of five. The teacher’s lounge became bedrooms and the classroom became the living space. The kitchen is fantastic! I especially love the wall of open storage over the sink cabinet section. Such a fun place to raise kids in. No worries about the floors getting scratched up (it's concrete) or one of the kids hiding somewhere and wrecking havoc (their toys are stashed in the play area under the stairs). By Standard Studio.

Chilean concrete

A stunning location and a stunning building. Almost like paper folds except with concrete. Rugged, box-like, brutal lines broken by walls of glass. A contemporary home on an ancient coast. Casa Ronco by Chilean architectural firm Estudio Valdés.
