    Prizewinning Respect for History: Coventry Place by Michael Jan Studio

    Sometimes the best-laid plans get an unexpected turn; that’s what happened when a builder intended to put two homes on a Coventry Place site in Melbourne, only to find that the house already there had historic value! That’s when he called in Michael Jan Studio, formerly JAM Architects, for help. The house was a prefabricated cottage, dating from 1852 or 1853, and had come to the site imported from Singapore; in the face of this, work began on restoring it...

    Dutch Riverside Chic: Transito Maritime Office by Eric Kant

    In a unique combination of living and work space, this office with a “maritime” feel features a skybox apartment in bold, contemporary style by the Netherlands’ Eric Kant. Overlooking the Merwede River, part of the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta, it’s a soaring, angular design that allows for vistas of the river from almost any work space, features an airy, open concept, and presents a clean, uncluttered ambience thanks to tons of storage space cleverly camouflaged behind reflective-surface cabinetry. There’s no sterile feel...

    Floor-Level Windows Make for a Unique CZZ House by Vanguarda

    Take a minimalist design; materials such as stone, masonry, and glass, and interesting angles and positions for windows, and you have this unique “look” in a one-story home from Vanguarda Architects. The home, made up basically of a “box,” differentiates spaces within and without by means of clever detail and floor-level glass that helps break up an unrelieved wall of stone here, affording a great backyard “bower” feel there. And, in an area where space is at a premium —...

    Making the Most of a Slope: Nevair Court, Highton, by JAM Architects

    When you picture a perfect indoor/outdoor house in your dreams, it might well look like this Nevair Court family home in Highton, by JAM Architects. Overlooking Australia’s Barrabool Hills, the house is set on a steep incline overlooking the Moorabool River valley, terrain that presents its own challenges even without trying to accommodate north-facing views, outdoor living space, and a need for privacy! Nevertheless, this contemporary space has it all, from smooth modern lines to casual, neutral décor and no-nonsense...

    High Style in South Africa: Ronan by Nico van der Meulen

    A sprawling white mansion sits in dignified glory behind a sliding wrought-iron gate, its multiple-peaked roof a great complement to the open sky, as you see Ronan by Nico van der Meulen for the first time. Listed under van der Meulen’s “traditional” homes, nonetheless this house is far from stodgy or uppity in its approach. There’s undeniable luxury here: from the curved stone drive to the elegant portico over the garage (for the few instances of inclement weather in this...

    Successful Maiden Voyage: House Coogee by Rolf Ockert Design

    House designs come from different sources; this house sprang from a party conversation that led to a client hiring Rolf Ockert Design on one of its “maiden voyages” as an independent entity, and personal rapport between architect and client went a long way toward its success in these truly stunning results. Fun-loving themselves, the clients wanted a house that would provide lots of light, air circulation, and killer views. This led to this design, centered around an internal courtyard that,...
