New and old and Technè

Australian design is shining at the moment. Like a beacon for modern living, honest, crafted, all about light and connection with the outdoors, the interactions between people and living space, respect for the old and exultation of the new.

This is all one house? Looks/feels like two. I like them both. Australia seems particularly well-suited to modern architecture that uses clerestory windows and lots of openings onto gorgeous green gardens–the climate seems to dictate indoor/outdoor living.
