from peter maddison

in this issue, I’d like to investigate design within the five elements needed to make a home. Design is the seed from which all building should grow because it serves a human condition. Design brings into focus our cultural, aspirational and historical place in time. The perfect answer to design should never be finished and should respond to the current condition without regurgitating the past. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? Why designers/architects? There is common acceptance of the expertise of doctors and lawyers. Designers and architects are experts, too. It takes about eight years to become a registered architect. We can therefore rely on their expertise. After all, the stakes are high for buildings; you can’t simply make a building go away, it will be with you for a long, long time. Cut and…

01 RENNIE STREET HOUSE If you’re thinking of changing up the exterior of your house, you’ll want to take note of Melbourne’s Rennie Street House. The daring design is the work of Architect Hewson.

Photography by Jack Lovel. architecthewson.com 02 ASHFORD HOUSE Located on broad acreage in Upper Beaconsfield, Victoria, the Ashford House by Excelcon is of contemporary design, with both minimalistic and modest features.

adore vino?

What should you consider when choosing a wine cabinet? • How many bottles will you need to store? You’ll want to be able to add to your collection so make sure you have enough space to grow. • Where in the house will you place your wine cabinet? Choose between freestanding or built-in models and avoid placing your wine cabinet in direct sunlight. • Are you looking to cellar or serve with your wine cabinet? Single-temp cabinets are ideal for cellaring (all wines cellar at 12–14°C), whereas multi-temp models are designed to serve your reds and whites at the proper drinking temperatures. Take the time to search retailers and visit showrooms for the sort of cabinet you’d like, and always compare prices to be sure you’re getting the best deal. Never be tempted by…
