When people think luxury homes, they usually think of ocean front homes in Sydney or elegant homes in tightly-held Melbourne suburbs. However, the prestige property market isn’t just confined to bayside ‘burbs.

Traditionally, most two-storey homes have followed the same pattern: kitchen and living areas on the ground floor and bedrooms on the upper floor. But many couples and families who have experienced apartment living or who have a block with stunning views have begun to opt for an ‘upside- down’ house. Here’s a few reasons why… Sweeping Views One of the major draw cards of reverse living are the panoramic views you can experience from an elevated position. Looking out [...]

Inspired by the epidemic of fast fashion and fashion waste, design student Lucille Nguyen considered the possibilities for replacing part of a shoe rather than the whole pair, and set to work creating a greener, cheaper and more customisable version. The result is a series of working prototypes called [...]
