Flinders Lane Melbourne. You can't get any closer to the heart of city. Only 75 metres square this clever apartment is stylish and hip. Plywood is used for the fitout with a storage cube providing a now you see it now you don't parents' sleeping nook and the baby's room. Flinders Lane Apartment by Clare Cousins. Contemporary architecture, historic building, dynamic laneway. A perfect marriage. The icing on the cake? It's listed on airbnb.

Changes of level and expanses of glass provide views that slice through the tree canopy while the house seems to tumble down the steep slope. Black cladding helps the structure disappear into the forrest. A wonderful getaway, an adult's cubby house. The Blackpool House at Waiheke, New Zealand by Glamuzina Paterson Architects.
