editor’s letter

I love this month’s cover image as it feels romantic and almost nostalgic and promises that gorgeous longer, warmer days are just around the corner. It was shot in a beautiful faded harbourside mansion in Sydney’s eastern suburbs as part of our SPY outdoor living special (p21). We had a sparkling day, and the images captured by photographer Alana Landsberry are evocative of Australian summer while exuding a distinctly Mediterranean feel. Lots of us are missing the opportunity to jump on a plane and get away from our everyday lives but on cracking days such as we had everything feels more optimistic.

poetic licence

WHEN I ARRIVE for my 2pm meeting with Sydney architect. Angelo Candalepas of Candalepas & Associates, I am asked to take a seat in reception. He is drawing, says his assistant. When I get to his second-floor office he is still drawing intently with ruler and drafting pencil in hand. “I just had to finish this off,” he says. Therein lies a clue to his personality – unhurried, focused and very much running his own race. Drawing has always been a talent, even as a child, he says: “I looked back recently on the artworks I created when I was 10 or 12 and think maybe that would have been a good direction for me.” From his builder father he learnt about the components of building – the noggins and the…
