“An addition to an existing garage, this loft space was designed to create a backyard artist retreat for the homeowner. Though the footprint may be small, the design pulls out all the stops. We like to think of our design as the more lighthearted, well travelled, slightly bohemian sister of the primary residence. With built-in planters, an oversized pitched skylight and unique detailing throughout, this retreat will allow our clients creativity to flow.”
I dream of a artist retreat in my backyard but my dreams have never reached these lofty heights (pardon the pun). If this is the garage extension I wonder how amazing the house is. Park Hill Loft by Calgary-based Fort Architecture.

Old and new. Soft and subdued in private areas, luxe and dramatic in public spaces. Antique and bespoke with an emphasis on ongoing patina of materials and the pattern of stone. Carefully curated and but playful. John Street by Sydney-based Phoebe Nicol.
“The interior design direction is informed by the laid-back Australian lifestyle layered with the depth of European tone. The interiors are designed to complement the architecture in geometry, materiality, and finish. The journey of the home is a sequence of shifting palettes that transition between spaces to provide a sense subtle separation within open plan spaces. The interior base palette is tonally consistent, composed of; polished concrete, walnut timber, rattan, and bronze, enriched with variations of colour and texture using marble and sandstone. The palette shifts to both complement the daily rituals of the family and also the connection with the landscape and bay. “

With a strong emphasis on natural materials and the colours of the surrounding environment this Vaucluse house by Sydney-based The Unlisted Collective. No cliched nautical theme, no overworked blue and white colour palette. Just stone and bush. Rugged and refined.
