Each issue of green (published six times a year) showcases the most interesting and creative sustainable designs from architects and landscapers around Australia and internationally.
In the sample issue #30 you will find projects by some of the most innovative architects from Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane plus the story of a renovation on a tire factory in Montreal. We give you the lowdown on efficient heating options and we check out some inspirational garden projects.
Special things happen when architects take chances. The homes in this issue show what greatness can be achieved when experimenting with briefs, sites and ideas.
Our annual workspaces feature demonstrates how architecture is responding to and propelling changes in how, when and where we work –whether it’s in formal workplaces, home offices or, increasingly, anywhere in between.
In northern NSW, Vokes and Peters seized the opportunity to do more with less; using only half of the site to deliver a family home steeped in landscape and human connection. Meanwhile in Sydney, David Boyle Architect’s award-winning Five Gardens House also seeks to make the most of its scenic location.
Down in Daylesford, Victoria, experience the wonders of Partners Hill’s acclaimed Daylesford Longhouse – a simple built form that belies its dynamism. The exterior of a Northcote, Melbourne home by Bellemo & Cat is similarly intriguing from the outside (although admittedly, much more flamboyant). This highly-considered renovation was inspired by modernism, art and sustainability.
