From the publisher
Australia's leading sustainable architecture and landscape design magazine for inspirational stories on local and international houses, gardens and profiles.
There are many reasons why smaller is better and they are made abundantly clear in this issue. Take SMITH Architects' cabin in the Blue Mountains. Its scale allows for views of the surrounding landscape from any point in the house. As with all well-designed smaller buildings, the crafting of the interior leaves no wasted space – only perfectly-arranged joinery for every possible need.
For architects Ellen Kwek and Michael Frazzetto, inspiration came from the courtyards of Mexico and Morocco when renovating their section of a warehouse in a dense urban setting. One directs light into the 60-square-metre interior and another, at the entrance, is closed when seeking privacy or open to the street for valuable community interaction.
Small housing can also lead to ef ciency in materials and therefore, cost. As was the case on a Brisbane block where architect John Ellway designed a pair of houses based on stock material sizes. Not only are these twin houses an example of affordable architecture, their scale means that the landscape is able to dominate the site.
The broader landscape is entirely central to the design of a tiny studio by architect Matt Williams. The majesty of The Hazards on Tasmania’s Freycinet Peninsula dramatically expands the space within, which contains all that could be needed for a comfortable existence, including a deck big enough for a tent.
Finally, back in the city, Architect George worked on a tight budget to tweak the light and ow of a tight terrace by opening up sightlines to the garden. And rather than expand the house’s footprint, director Dean Williams reduced it in favour of more outdoor space. Bravo.
