2019-02-28T11:24:23+00:00 February 28th, 2019|Architecture, Design, Modscape, Sustainability|

Ask any homeowner about what they really ‘love’ in their homes and one of the answers is invariably their views. Connectivity to the outdoors, natural light and a feeling of space, all play a key part in what makes us happy – so much so that architects and designers have been steadily increasing the number and size of windows in many modern homes. From a practical point of view, however, all this glass comes at a [...]

Healthy assets - healthy people When we visit a hospital as a patient the last thing we tend to think of is how the hospital’s assets are planned and managed, and what effect this might have on us. Instead, we simply rely on the system to work and that the health professionals who care for us have the facilities and equipment they require. What we don’t often think about is that healthy asset management is critical to patient outcomes, and [...]

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 [...]

In the world of property marketing – especially when selling off-the-plan projects – sophisticated efforts to help consumers visualise their forthcoming purchase are bridging the gap between now and what will exist in the future. When helping consumers develop an affinity with projects yet to break ground, there is nothing that conveys the design intent, internal palettes, ideals, vision and over-arching scale of a development better than a display centre. It is perhaps why the display centre is becoming even [...]

Words from The New Daily - www.thenewdaily.com.au When the roads around your home have been closed, the neighbourhood bus re-routed and 12 semi-trailers, a 250-tonne crane and 30 or so people turn up, you know something special is happening.
