Stalking an inner city oasis 

I'm stalking in one of my favourite inner city Sydney suburbs. I'm stalking the streets of Paddington. That part of Paddington that spills into Woollahra. A pristine white terrace house with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a pool. A stylish family home in a stylish part of town with extensions and renovations by celebrated architect Luigi Rosselli. Let's start in the back yard and work our way up the 3 levels. There's lots of lovely distractions on the way. It may take some time.

P.S. Link here while it lasts.

Stalking the girl with the pearl earring

A long, narrow, one bedroom apartment in a complex with great facilities. So often the private space pales in comparison with the public areas. But the girl with the pearl earring seems to have settled in a stylish pad. 80 m²and in most part only 3.2 m wide. Slick finishes, mirror and drama. Stalking an apartment in Redfern, Sydney. Link here while it lasts.

The barns

Over the years a jumble of 19th century barns were moved and remodeled, added to and almost disappeared beneath new work. Owners came and went until the current occupants engaged architectural firm Christoff : Finio to add their layer to the buildings. That's what so many old buildings are ... layers. Layers of new work and old, layers of materials, layers of lives and layers of meanings. Creating a new home from this jumble of layers doesn't always mean stripping back to basics. Sometimes it just means rationalising, reworking, rearranging and revealing to reveal the beauty.
