Neil Architecture

Elwood House is a single storey, bayside residence that has been renovated to better suit its location and the needs of a growing family. Voids and skylights create sun-lit internal spaces that are balanced by natural timber, white and grey surfaces. Large living spaces open to sunny courtyard gardens with outdoor entertaining areas and a pool, giving this home a relaxed and inviting feel.

Love it! The light, the clean, modern lines, those steel framed windows and doors, the seamless transition from inside to out and once you're outside ... just as impressive. Elwood House by Melbourne-based Neil Architecture.

New meets old in Medindie

A historic facade and thoroughly modern out the back. Yes another fabulous old meets new Aussie extension. In the suburb of Medindie in the inner-north of Adelaide, South Australia. By William Burton Leopardi. I think the architects description of how it all came about is great.

“Don’t kill the tree!” A gnarly pepper tree formed the planning challenge of an addition for a young family to their Victorian era home. A pool, small block, desire for light, space and ‘room to grow’ rounded out the brief and reaffirmed the challenge. Space for all, parents and kids, and an enthusiasm to embrace this as the “opportunity of a lifetime” allowed for delightful layering of function, whimsy and contemporary eclectism – oh…..and “don’t want to see the kitchen.”

The owners of this Cremorne, Sydney house wanted their interiors to be lived in, warm, inviting and "non-designery". Their Queen Anne style home was redesigned and extended by Luigi Rosselli architects but they turned to interior designers Decus to weave the magic that saw traditional meet modern, Danish mid century sit with family friendly custom build and everywhere glorious art. Light, bright, modern with a nod and always stylish but never precious. Beautiful, unique, fun.

Modern country

A simple extension to an existing house takes advantage of the views to the surrounding countryside. The feature window in the living area frames the vista while the wood burner sits to the side allowing the occupants to take it all in. Love the use of tongue and groove panelling to add to the country flavour. The rooms are almost Shaker like in their simplicity but there is no doubting that this is modern Australian design. If I'm not curled up in front of the fire and the view I'll be soaking in the tub with the view. The Plinth House by Luke Stanley Architects.
