this is the home of the year issue

While Inside Out features incredible homes every issue, we wanted to celebrate the very best of modern Australian homes, those groundbreaking local projects that will influence renovations and new builds to come. We are all about modern Australian living, and the planning, detail and construction that goes into creating homes that bring joy. So we partnered with Brickworks and invited the industry to share what’s happening with the conceptualising, design and execution of houses, and we were inundated with thoughtful, character-filled projects with a purpose: to make the lives lived within them better. The first-ever Home of the Year winning project is an extraordinary house by architecture firm Kennedy Nolan, who brought new life to an Edwardian weatherboard in Melbourne by transforming it into a playful, optimistic and creative home for the…

Tell us about your creative journey so far? Laetitia: Jess and I met at university while we were completing our Masters of Art Curatorship. I went on to work in the contemporary Australian (non-Indigenous) art industry, while Jess spent time working with remote Indigenous artists and art centres in the Top End. We both had a desire to do something on our own and we wanted to continue working with artists, just in a different way. We took the leap after I had some time off with my first baby and Jess had just completed her Masters of Business (Marketing). Where does the name Willie Weston come from? Jess: It’s my maternal grandmother’s name. I never met her but she was quite the pioneering lady. Together with my grandfather, she built…

life & soul

I was on maternity leave as editor of this magazine in 2002 when the idea for the first Iconic Australian Houses book came about.

The word ‘iconic’ was not quite so overused back then and it became my benchmark for what was fit for inclusion. The house had to represent the original work from an architect of note and be intact, as some houses have undergone so many changes that the architects have renounced them; and it had to break new ground and create a new architectural language, which might be through use of…

Get your dose of design through David Harrison’s blog at designdaily.com.au THE ORIGINAL Le Klint 306 table lamp The form A table lamp with a finely crafted solid brass base and pleated shade. What makes it special The tilt mechanism on this curvy table lamp allows it to be used as a table or wall lamp. Designed in 1945 by the late Danish architect and furniture designer Kaare Klint, the 306 contrasts the linear pleating of the iconic Le Klint shade with an organically shaped base in bent brass. This unique combination of regimented pleating and fluid shape enables the lamp to slip into a wide range of interiors, from traditional to modern. Klint served as an apprentice to both his father PV Jensen-Klint and architect Carl Petersen, before designing the interior for the…
