Enjoy a glass of wine (or two) after a long, hard day’s work? Us too. And we’d enjoy it much more if we got to drink it from this beautiful wine bar and tasting room in the historic town of Znojmo in the Czech Republic. Set in a converted 19th century brewery and its adjacent technical space – a structure that was added in the 1970s – the House of Wine effortlessly highlights the region’s multifaceted architectural history. Externally, the [...]

The only thing that seems to get the juices flowing more than a kitchen renovation is a brand-new kitchen – and a sizeable majority of Australians are rolling up their sleeves each year to plan their perfect one. But just because we spend so much time in our kitchens, it doesn’t mean we have the very best grasp on what is needed from an architectural and design point of view.

Building a new home is one of the most exciting and rewarding projects you can undertake and often starts with a long period of reflection on your dream house and envisioning the lifestyle it will offer.

2019-10-18T10:27:03+00:00 October 18th, 2019|Architecture, Design, Modscape|

Some would argue that staircases are purely practical – designed to get you from A to B. However, with the introduction of new materials and building practices, staircases of today can be more than just functional and are quickly becoming one of the major features in architect designed homes. Given their span and structural elements – the way that they join and navigate space, and how they scale both horizontally and vertically – it is no wonder that they offer [...]

With market conditions tightening and developers looking for new ways to maximise their investments, modular multi-unit residential and modular apartment developments have risen to prominence. Targeting medium scale developments and infill housing, the modular methodology is making build times more rapid and cost-effective, providing stringent quality controls and eliminating costly errors. So, rather than cut corners to make projects meet timelines and budgets, savvy developers are trumpeting modular solutions to achieve quality, design-led results but with greater control.
