sam + pam

Don't you sometimes wish you could be a kid again? After seeing this play structure by the office of mcfarlane biggar, I ABSOLUTELY DO! sam + pam is a play structure for kids. The two-metre by two-metre twin structure is made entirely out of 2×3" spruce-pine-fir protected from the elements with a clear varnish. 'Sam + Pam' suggests new forms of play from the premise of doing "much with little". Inside the slatted three-storey towers are ladders for climbing up to various perches and protected spaces. Kids can clamber through the multiple entrances connected by a rope bridge and monkey bars. Outside one of the towers, a pole slide offers another escape route. (It was built as part of the Playhouse Challenge for charity)

It is just so clean and sleek! I love this firm.

Stalking a kitchen with a garden view

Can you buy a house just because of a kitchen and its garden courtyard outlook? I think you can.

I'm stalking in surprisingly leafy Paddington on a very busy road but from these photos you'd never know. Link here while it lasts.

From my window

Everyday I see this house. No that's a lie. Everyday I see the roof of this house from my window at work. Everyday finds me wondering what it looks like and who designed it. Now I know. Switch by Aardvarc.

Trellis House

An extension and refurbishment of a Post-War cottage with lots of style and not too much cash. The trellis and vines create a seasonally changing connection to the garden while covering a basic trim-deck shell. A celebration of casual subtropical living in the suburbs of Brisbane by Aardvarc.
