if there’s one thing that Grand Designs provides in spades — both the TV show and this m magazine — it’s that wonderful opportunity to have a good old snoop around other people’s houses. Who doesn’t love to see how everyone else designs, styles and lives in their homes? Of course, even better than looking at a screen or a page is to get out there and have a physical snoop around, which is exactly what I did during the Design Canberra Festival. And I cannot recommend it enough. Walking through the Pedro Geleris-designed Sutton House, in Griffith, I was able to really feel the significance of the huge, centrally located fireplace around which every ssingle living space revolved. And that was after I’d experienced the sheer roominess of the double-height…

one hundred thousand. Used to be a big number. But it seems it’s a starting point for everything today. If you want to visualise the number, think MCG Grand Final day, packed to the rafters. It’s also the number who attended the Climate Action march, in Melbourne alone. There’s a serious call to arms by mostly young people to take notice of what’s being wrecked in our environment. This groundswell will continue to rise until the government thinks beyond piecemeal solutions. That’s not to say tackling the use of plastic and a sustainable waste management solution is not needed. In fact, I have an agenda of my own to pick up 100 pieces of rubbish each and every day. But why is there rubbish on the ground, and in the rivers…

01 HIDDEN STUDIO Nestled among the trees on a 20-acre property in Byron Bay, the Hidden Studio was imagined as a refuge with privacy and immersive views. The renowned “Sydney School” architect Ian McKay had designed the two existing structures on the land, which were the starting point (and complement) of this third building. Repeated portal frames and continuity of materials ensure a smooth linear flow through the home. The facade of the view-facing side is mostly glass, while aged metal ingratiates the rustic home with its environment. Photography by Andy Macpherson. 02 NORTH AVOCA HOUSE What better place to weekend away than North Avoca Beach on the NSW Central Coast? Embracing the bungalow style of the area, but with its own twist, this home follows the natural curve of the land…
