editor’s letter

“MANY of the stories this issue are IMBUED with a sense of wistfulness for SIMPLER TIMES.” There’s definitely a shift happening across the nation, and as our cover proclaims, many people are ‘moving to the country’. If Covid has shown us a positive, it is that the right people can be productive and achieve fantastic results from anywhere. I know – I am writing this from lockdown in Sydney. I am not physically sitting with the fabulous H&G team, but I still feel telepathically and technologically connected. Covid forced us to embrace technology that was waiting to be harnessed and it has compelled many employers to see that results can be genuinely outstanding with people WFH, as the acronym goes. And the opportunity to WFH has given people the impetus they need…

all in the family

Childhood surfing holidays spent with their father on the NSW South Coast were fresh in their memories when brothers Luke and Jay Baldwin bought this four-bedroom 1950s bungalow in 2018. Two hours’ drive from Sydney, it would be the ideal weekender and getaway from their busy working lives. However, for these professional green thumbs – Luke is a landscape architect and Jay is a landscape construction manager, at Formed Gardens – their design flair never goes on holiday, as this home reveals. That sense of style extends both inside and out, the two melding into a seamless whole. When they first sighted the cottage, it was a humble fibro, tellingly described by the real-estate ads as a “DIY delight”. The house was the victim of a renovation abandoned midway by the previous…

Disruption rarely tops the list of qualities a homeowner is looking for in an architect, but then again Andrew Kuiler isn’t your average owner. “I’m a disrupter myself,” says Andrew, “and I was seeking an architect whose values aligned with mine.” His role as owner and CEO of Shanghai-based brand consultancy The Silk Initiative sees Andrew lead a team that helps global companies design identities that will resonate with the Chinese and Asian markets. But Andrew lives in Ballarat, Victoria, and it’s there that he recently built his dream home. “I’ve been working overseas for the past 20 years and, on moving back to Australia, I wanted a house that reflected the global hodge-podge of my career and interests,” he says. “My plan was that I would base myself in Ballarat…

your h&g

Recent back surgery had me feeling low when my daughter came to visit (bless her heart), bringing me the June edition of Australian House & Garden. Being sick of laying around watching reno shows on TV and sleeping the day away, I ventured into the garden to enjoy the winter sun and read H&G from cover to cover. What a magazine! Seeing such inspiring houses and gardens from around this wonderful country of ours took my mind off my pain and inspired me to delve into my personal H&G archive of all the issues I have collected over the years. Truly a fabulous magazine. Clayton Brown, Carina, Queensland ALL THE WHITE MOVES As a fan of Three Birds Renovations, I was ecstatic to see one of the company’s projects featured in the June…
