Adventurous Travel for the Winter SeasonThere is something about the winter months that seems to awaken a sense of wanderlust in many people. Whether it’s the need for an escape from the bitter, drab

The Experimental Melbourne Home Of Two Artists

Nabilah Nordin and Nick Modrzewski describe their Melbourne home best as a ‘warped maximalist colour feast; monster-bird dinner party; new gothic masquerade; baking disaster; totemic gunk pile; and cluster-bomb development laboratory!’ Brilliant!

This very specific look has been achieved in just six months by the artists, who have instantly characterised their period home with paintings, colour, and their own sculptures. 

It’s an ever-evolving space, with something new to discover at every turn!

The Magic Of City Living, With Dean Bryant and Mathew Frank

Inner city living feels surprisingly uncommon for Australians, and yet those who choose to dwell in the CBD are passionate about doing so. Dean Bryant and Mathew Frank are two of those people!

The pair of theatre professionals (a writer/director, and composer/music director respectively) have lived in their beautiful art deco apartment in a 100-year-old building for the last ten years. In our new series, The Urbanists, in partnership with the City of Melbourne with support from the Victorian Government – we picked the couple’s brains about the places they frequent in the city, the activities they spend the day doing and why they love living right in the thick of things.

And Melbourne? More like Manhattan! Those city views are giving us Big Apple vibes – but better.

'Free-Fairing Friend' Lunchbox – The Design Files | Australia's most popular design blog.

WELL it’s a bloody hard act to follow those amazing Corsos, but the gorgeous very clever Cassie Lucas of Firecracker is boldly joining us this week for Tasty Tuesday!  Welcome Cassie!  This week we have asked Cassie to share with us something she is passionate about – The Importance of Lunch! After spending many years working in landscape design before launching her own little catering and events company, Cassie knows the importance of a good lunch.  Why do we so often neglect this all important meal – often cramming the worst possible fast food options in because we’re time poor, or worse still, skipping lunch altogether!?  This month Cassie is on a one woman mission to ‘bring lunch back!’  With plenty of lunchbox ideas with grown-up appeal, we hope Cassie’s recipes will inspire a lunchtime revolution amongst TDF readers this month… who’s with us!? – Lucy

A Serene, Geoffrey Bawa-Inspired Auckland Home

Influential Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa is renowned for his tropical modernist style that brings the outdoors in – an aesthetic that’s been thoughtfully adopted for a New Zealand context in this Auckland home.

Designed by Jack McKinney Architects in collaboration with interior design practice Katie Lockhart Studio, the project is a complete reworking of an Edwardian villa. Drawing on the textures and materials signature to Bawa’s projects, the updated home is sophisticated and warm, yet entirely fit for purpose as a busy family home in inner-city Auckland.

South Gippsland + Wilsons Promontory With Andrea Moore

Most people (us included) leave Wilsons Prom exclaiming that they just can’t believe it’s in Victoria – the landscapes are THAT incredible!

Even if you’ve visited the spectacularly scenic national park before, you may have unknowingly missed out on all the charms of a little township known affectionately as ‘The Turning Point’ en route.

Meeniyan local, stylist and interior designer Andrea Moore has made sure we won’t ever do this again, with her guide to her hometown and surrounds, a two-hour drive south-east of Melbourne.

Painting Gentle, Hopeful Utopias With Louise Tate

Seldom do we see themes of harmony and hope tangled up in the art of today. In a world filled with anxiety, busy-ness, fear and darkness, art feels increasingly like a space of political resistance. But what about the more gentle emotions? In such a bleak climate, can bursts of care and optimism be radical acts?

Inspired by a childhood in Mullumbimby charged with imagination, innocence and play, Melbourne artist Louise Tate paints gentle utopias that act as a refuge from our current world. Her bright and balanced canvases depict a universe where human life and the natural world happily co-exist, and where softness and slowness are valued.

A Prototype For Accessible + Responsible Housing In The Suburbs

According to a recent report by the ABC, developments in the outer suburbs of big cities can get up to 10 degrees hotter than the city centre. This is due to overdevelopment and poor town planning, where every inch of usable land is occupied with a house, thereby leaving little room for either private or public open place.

From both a human and environmental perspective, we desperately need responsibly designed, accessible housing in new suburban developments. The LiveWorkShare House by Bligh Graham Architects is a prototype for sustainable, flexible housing in high-density blocks.

Located in Samford village just outside Brisbane, the project covers only 40% of its 612 sqm site. Formulated with the work-from-home model in mind, the architects emphasise smart design as a way to achieve the trifecta of functional diversity, density and green space at once.

Domain Editor Alice Stolz’s Gorgeous Melbourne Family Home

Even when you’re the editor of a real estate platform, it can be surprisingly difficult to find your perfect family home! 

Domain’s national managing editor and property expert Alice Stolz (you might recognise her from The Block!) experienced this unique conundrum when returning to Australia in 2016, following 12 years living overseas with her husband Adam Stolz and three children. A city-wide Melbourne search ensued, leading to this 1900s Canterbury home, oozing with character and potential. 

Alice and Adam worked with Doherty Design Studio to completely renovate the property within the existing footprint. The result is equal parts practical and playful, exuding a certain ‘je ne sais quoi!’

An Old Self Storage Warehouse Turned Light-Filled Courtyard Home

When architect Kyra Thomas (Kyra Thomas Architects) and her partner Julian Reznik were searching for their new home, they were looking for a challenge; something they could transform into a spacious family home, but that was a little different to the usual inner-city Sydney property.

They found exactly that in an old self-storage warehouse, which they’ve masterfully renovated into an elegant family home that seamlessly connects exterior courtyard spaces with an open-plan, light-filled interior.
