Inside: It’s no secret that the coronavirus pandemic has changed much about the way we live, including how we inhabit and make the most of our homes. In Sanctuary 59 we bring you a mini-feature on backyard builds: beautifully designed studios and sleepouts that occupy underutilised space, providing flexibility and increased functionality. There’s a Brisbane ‘bunkie’ surrounded by greenery, and a small-footprint studio in inner Sydney on the site of an unused carport. Helen’s family loves the sense of space and natural light in their multi-purpose addition in Preston, Victoria. In Melbourne, where Covid lockdowns and work-from-home orders were particularly lengthy, creative home offices have sprung up everywhere; we visit four, ranging from a tiny DIY ‘Covid cubby’ to an architect’s home studio with a green roof. Our sustainable house profiles also include a flood-resilient extension near Wollongong, a Queenslander renovation that accommodates a multi-generational family, and an 8.3-Star Perth house that balances privacy and engagement with the street. Elsewhere, architect Amelia Lee explains the dos and don’ts for roofing your alfresco area, and we take a look at what to consider when choosing decking materials. Chris Ferreira of the Forever Project takes us on a tour of his ground-breaking ‘car-lite’ urban infill project in Perth, prioritising small-footprint dwellings and shared green space. And we extend a helping hand to our insect friends with tips for creating a pollinator-friendly verge garden – plus much more.
