We often talk about the house as a refuge, a place for respite, replenishment and calm. But our homes are also places for activity, harbouring spaces for creativity, industriousness and collaboration with our families. Whether it be baking a cake together, tending the garden or playing games on the living room floor, these pastimes spent with the people we love colour our day-to-day. It ws a delight to see this first hand when I visited Kindred by Panov Scott Architects (page 44), where the home was designed to meet the desires of three generations who each enjoy their independence, but a shared garden allows the entire family to come together and catch up on the day. The houses in this issue show how good design can expand the opportunities for activity and…

park road house by lineburg wang

In residential projects, there are often interesting backstories about how people find their architect. The clients of Park Road House connected with Michael Lineburg of Lineburg Wang after fancying the Sandgate Pier House in a design publication. It was a project Michael had worked on several years ago while with Brisbane-based practice Owen and Vokes and Peters, as it was then known. Something in Sandgate Pier House resonated with the clients’ own situation as they contemplated transforming their rambling four-bedroom, two-storey Queenslander overlooking a generous backyard. Retired and running a short-term accommodation business, the client couple sought to remake their home for a different type of life, creating a place that adult children would want to come back to with their own families and one that also allowed the owners…

garden house by bkk architects

What is a house for? Not every house is for the same thing. Well, obviously there are some common purposes – climate control, keeping the rain out, facilitating sleeping, storing things, preparing food and drink etc. This last category is normally fulfilled by something called a “kitchen,” but there is a danger in using labels – they are ready-mades, stereotypes, clichés. Better not to name it at all – that way, it is more likely to appear to you afresh, as a unique thing, a particular instance, strange. At this house in Fitzroy North, designed by BKK Architects, every space has multiple potential uses and each zone bleeds into the next. There is a place for storing and preparing food, hanging out with friends, washing dishes – the usual kitchen…

glassbook house by sibling architecture

In the sunbaked inner west of Sydney, Tempe is about as far from Paris as one can imagine. Yet inspiration from the city of love has found its way to these streets, in the transformation of a worker’s cottage from the Federation era. But more on Paris later. This is a story of homecoming and new horizons: a literary academic retiring to Sydney engages one of Melbourne’s most talented emerging practices (Sibling Architecture) for its first Sydney commission. The client had bought the two-bedroom brick house near Tempe Station to be closer to family, having grown up further down the Illawarra line at Penshurst. A chance meeting through friends led her to Sibling Architecture, which had just opened a studio in Sydney. The house is a similar vintage to her childhood home, so…
