From the publisher
Australia's leading sustainable architecture and landscape design magazine for inspirational stories on local and international houses, gardens and profiles.
Inside issue 52 we explore many of the prefab design options (pg 32).
The houses in this issue are very much focused on achieving a strong connection to their gardens, be they small or large. Renovating within a tight site was an exciting challenge for New Zealand practice Studio 106 (pg 48). With a little spatial creativity they have turned a 1960s, 70-square-metre unit into an entrancing space, full of light and settled into an abundant garden. In a discreet renovation, tucked behind a pretty white weatherboard, Clare Cousins Architects (pg 56) have used a series of windows and doors to frame the garden. Fanning out in all directions on the oddly shaped block, these openings also allow for an easy flow from inside to out.
On a coastal, albeit suburban, site Auhaus Architecture (pg 40) have carefully placed glazing for sneaky views of landscape between houses, whilst also turning the views within to courtyards and a rooftop garden.
