Brunswick House by Preston Lane

"Key to the clients’ brief for Brunswick House was to provide better connections between the indoor and outdoor spaces and optimize the use of natural light throughout the house. Soft light bounces off the water of the new lap pool onto the ceiling intermingled with gentle shadows from the trees in the adjacent property on the western boundary. The crisp lines of the fine steel window frames and perforated mesh box overhead provide a contemporary addition to the original double storey Victorian terrace which intentionally contrast the original period features."

Brunswick House by Melbourne-based architectural firm Preston Lane rounds out a week that had more than it's fair share of extensions and renovations to older homes in Australia. It may sound like bragging but I really believe that Australian architects are masters of the addition. It's not just about extra space but about light, transition between inside and out, modern, often open plan living and a distinction between old and new, of due respect and reference to the original but also a celebration of the best of contemporary design.

Bathroom plans

Lynda Gardener

Whether you're starting from scratch or renovating your existing bathroom it's easy to pin pictures and fill a virtual file to overflowing with ideas and wishlists. I know. I'm guilty as charged. After many years and a few false starts we will (fingers crossed) start our own family bathroom renovation over the next few weeks. Sleek and über cool or vintage and earthy? As you can see from my inspiration pictures I'm leaning very heavily towards a vintage, scandi, boho, black and white but maybe with a touch of sleek modern. Surprise, surprise. Our bathroom will be in the old stables at the back of our 150 year old house because a) it is a lovely old room with painted brick and a small fireplace and b) that is where a lot of the existing plumbing is, making it a cheaper job. I promise to take photos as the job progresses.
