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.
Recently, we’ve seen more residential architecture that engages with the street, rather than turning away or closing itself off from it. Our cover house does this beautifully; a cyclone fence provides transparency and welcomes street activity. Borrowed shade and light from deciduous trees on the adjacent nature strip help with cooling and warming at the right times. Large openings and window seats make the most of the free space beyond the boundary of the property.
And just as the house borrows from the street, the street and its passersby bene t from the house: specifically the garden, which occupies a vast 85 per cent of the block (far more than a typical suburban home) and can be experienced by all.
