Construction of this stunning five-bedroom, 10-bathroom home was made up of 74 pre-cast panels installed via 130-tonne cranes. Post-tensioning strands allowed for thinner slabs, incredible internal floorplate spans, speed of construction and superior long-term durability of the home. Best practice construction methodology was executed by the experienced team at Easton. A key feature that informed design was home orientation. With an exposed corner site with minimal setbacks, great care was taken to create privacy and maximise light. The home boasts a spa, lap pool, 3.4m high ceilings on the ground floor, a dual height art gallery, library, gymnasium and home theatre, with 360-degree views from the roof terrace.
The East Albury project offered a rare opportunity in regional centres to collaborate with one of Australia’s leading architects on a home where size was not the driver but rather craftmanship, quality, innovation and sustainability. Sited in an established neighbourhood, this compact home manages to be a spatial marvel, packed with surprising features. Built over two levels, there are two bedrooms with ensuites, a study and multiple living spaces. Materials used are a combination of block, blackbutt and Barestone (cement) sheeting. Topping slabs have been laid over an insulated structural slab that has in-floor hydronic heating for comfort. Water tanks, drainage and retaining walls are all concealed. Doors disappear into walls, windows are set flush, and the ceiling rakes above. From the freestanding bath to the retractable flyscreens, all aspects of this custom build home prioritise quality and longevity.

Cale Peters Constructions have created a space that allowed for a new kitchen, separate pantry, bathroom, laundry, and powder room in the same footprint of 51sq m as the old lean-to that was originally built. It was positioned onsite in a way that would retain the client’s established edible garden. Typical to most inner-city extensions, the original lounge room within the cottage is retained as the main living area, meaning that the footprint of the contemporary addition could be minimised. The northern façade is characterised by three sliding timber screens on a single track. The screens have numerous purposes that control heat gain, glare and offer an increased level of privacy to surrounding development.
CSM Building & Developments were tasked with renovating and transforming a 1930s single storey two-bedroom Californian bungalow into a contemporary two-storey, four-bedroom family home with ample covered car parking, garage and outdoor entertaining space. A critical component of the project was to keep enough of the existing building structure so as not to trigger planning permit requirements that would normally apply to a greenfield site project. The design brief was to provide a sanctuary for the family from their busy work and school lives, having designated personal spaces, and incorporating common areas which are linked to a functional private outdoor living area. The first floor contains the children’s bedrooms with a bathroom and retreat space. The ground floor contains the master and guest bedrooms with open-plan living/dining/kitchen spaces linked to the outside alfresco and garden entertaining areas by a covered deck.
Construct Melbourne was engaged to complete a major renovation and extension of a heritage-listed Federation brick home in Malvern East. To support the vision of a modernised, functional, and spacious iteration of the existing floorplan, a contemporary extension was built to the rear of the home to house an open kitchen and living area, study, and butler’s pantry. The new space supports the family’s love for the outdoors, with large sliding doors opening to a large timber deck that overlooks the luxury in-ground pool. A new garage and carport were also built onto the side of the property for further functionality and security.
The project involved a renovation and addition to a 1930s double brick art deco home. The design had to be sensitive to the heritage overlay for the property, and the extension needed to be sympathetic to the neighbourhood character restricting the visual impact of the rear extension. The home also ticks all the boxes from an energy efficiency point of view, sparing no expense on fixed shading, natural pathways for ventilation and high rated insulation to all walls, ceilings and floors. The interior design of the home brings together the earthy tones of the feature stone walls with the use of natural solid and veneered blackbutt and Victorian Ash timber materials and pastel paint colours.
This project involved the addition of a new pavilion to this existing heritage listed 19th Century Victorian terrace in North Melbourne. The renovation consisted of a double height space with a mezzanine balcony, adding two extra bedrooms, a reconfiguration of an existing bathroom upstairs, and a living space, kitchen and additional bathroom and laundry downstairs. The existing pool and yard also required a complete overhaul. The timber framed extension was wrapped in Colorbond standing seam in a white matt finish which created a striking contrast to the original heavy features of the Victorian terrace. The build required the incorporation of multiple materials within the new space and a seamless flow between old and new.
The project had a heritage façade that remained for the entire build, with access tight but manageable. The house seamlessly changes and evolves in three layers from ground to first floor and then up again onto the roof terrace. The home boasts a combination of light-weight timber, suspended concrete structure and is clad in recycled brick work with complementing blackbutt timber. It lets in an abundance of natural light through the most discreet spaces. Upstairs areas in inner-city houses can often be neglected due to overlooking, building bulk and overshadowing. This house does the opposite: A first floor patio accessible from the lounge and study is private but provides views of neighbouring buildings as well as your own. A private terrace on the second floor allows for views over rooftops, the city, and nearby mountains.
This exceptional project involved the conversion of a 40-room hotel into a family residence. The site is included in a broad heritage overlay and is graded ‘B’ was a streetscape level of ‘1’, meaning the building is of metropolitan significance, and stands as an important milestone in the architectural development of the city. Demolition works to the rear two-thirds of the residence were significant, while having to maintain the heritage-listed façade. At the completion of the demolition works to the rear, all that was left was a web of steel supporting 15m high brick wall facades and chimneys. These brick facades were then underpinned to allow a new garage to be built at the rear at street level. From here the rear internal structure was re-built in steel and concrete to allow a pool to be built on the roof with views to the city. All other existing rooms to the front of the residence were completely stripped of all finishes and re-finished to the highest of specification by Studio McQualter.

The scope of works was to design and construct a single storey, four-bedroom display home to suit a 14m x 33m block.. The Banyan takes indoor-outdoor living to the next level with multiple sun courts. It means the kitchen and living area is flooded with natural light from three directions. A rumpus room opens off the living area for easy supervision by parents. Three well-proportioned bedrooms also open off the central area in a separate zone for sleeping and homework. The front of the house is zoned separately with a study and a master suite enjoying a prime location away from it all.

The Acura 38 design is a four-bedroom home with an open living room area, rumpus room that is both accessible from the living room space and the kid’s bedroom, double garage, and outdoor living space. The home has a light filled industrial Zen like feel which the original design concept was based on. The entry door is an outstanding feature in itself with a 3.0m x1.6m wide glass door on a pivot frame, welcoming you into the home. As you enter you will be met with a souring 3.6metre high ceiling fitted with three large fixed glass Velux windows that span down the entry hallway leading you through to the living room space. A feature glass internal wall separates the entry from living and is a clever design aspect that opens up what is a long entry hall. The living space has been designed to maximise light and an open style of living. With a central kitchen and island bench with living and dining flowing off this central space.
This home exemplifies luxury living. The Wildlife, aptly named after the street on which it was built, is an expansive five-bedroom majestic home.

Thoughtful touches inside the home include a stunning freestanding bath in the master ensuite, a custom designed wine cabinet and a marble gas log fire.
Belarte was enlisted to build a spacious home on a small irregular shaped sub-divided backyard block. An industrial fuelled design, the building is dressed with a polished concrete slab, recycled pressed red brick to the ground floor, traditional timber weatherboard wrap the first floor and fit well into the landscape and surrounds, and an irregular shaped Colorbond roof. The inside consists of an exposed red brick wall, square set/p.50 finish to all plasterboard, custom-made door jambs, concealed stringer timber staircase with timber flooring to match on the first floor, custom made joinery, and architectural tile finished to wet areas.
This contemporary home was designed and built to suit a modest block with a casual lifestyle in mind. Low maintenance and clever use of space was the clients brief. The property consists of four bedrooms, two living zones, luxurious bathrooms, large laundry and a north-facing outdoor living area. The open-plan kitchen, meals, and living area open out to the north rear covered pergola, perfect for entertaining family and friends. The home's façade is a real stand out, with a concrete finish render, corner but glass window and timber clad garage door. Tall internal doors, square set plasterwork throughout, concrete floors, and black accessories complement the overall design and style of this contemporary functional family home.
The design of the home into two wings allows for the home to be zoned down when not in use. The home consists of three bedrooms, two bathrooms, open plan living, kitchen, dining and carport. Timber cladding, brickwork, the feature Colorbond metal enseam cladding, and polished concrete floors meet the client's low maintenance brief. The use of hexagons was a must for the client, and this was achieved with wood-look hexagon tiles with a pattern the client loved. The site cut helped the back of the house feel bunkered down for privacy, but the front elevation allowed for great views across the wetlands.
This home was built on a largely sloping block with a bushfire attack level of 29. The project ensured that the property was designed and constructed to fit the circumstances of the land, and also importantly, built to the fire rating standards. Such as ensuring that there are no flammable objects within 10 metres of the dwelling, having a 5000-litre water tank, and constructing the building works in strict accordance with requirements of a property with the BAL rating of 29. To enhance views of the below grasslands, large glass sliding doors which open to the balcony and a large bi-fold window bring the outside in. The design is practical and suitable for a growing family, with a wonderful open space for entertaining friends and family.
This home includes four bedrooms, a study, two separate living areas and a master suite that is something out of a hotel. With the land situated on top of the hill, the view was always going to be a focal point, so using large double-glazed powder-coated windows throughout the home achieved the desired design. Double height ceiling in the entry with stacked windows that frame a large gum tree gives you a sense of luxury and volume and makes you feel at home as soon as you walk through the oversized glass pivot entry door.
The project involved creating a comfortable family home that accommodated all aspects of current-day modern living. Large open interior spaces, generous private spaces, and abundant natural light and visual connection to the landscape. The floor plan accommodates all that is required for 21st-century living and more. As well as bringing in the natural elements from the outside, through cleverly placed windows, courtyards and skylights, the connection to nature is ever-present, giving the home a light, airy and relaxed feel. Features include PGH linea Gris bricks, engineered oak floors, and James Hardie Axon claddings. Aswell as under-slab insulation and an Aircon multi-zoned system throughout, including hydronic heating panels, floor grates and towel rails.
This project is a celebration of natural materials with a strong emphasis on recycled timber. The design represents the culmination of decades of knowledge and experience in both the design and construction industries. The design brief was for a pared-back layout with two bathrooms and three bedrooms, the prominence being on a more sustainable approach to living with highly customised details. Discussions were held with the client early in the design process to decide the most essential living and amenity areas required for a comfortable lifestyle. The reduction in scale helped to significantly reduce cost, and the use of both recycled and reclaimed materials further assisted in reducing supply costs.
The set out, and site cut were critical elements of the build, given the angles of the house needed to work in conjunction with the natural slope of the block. The curved retaining wall was constructed to flow into the storeroom wall on the boundary. With seven different floor levels under one roofline, the wall framing was built to different pitches depending on its relation to the roof. The clients had an interest in Scandinavian mid-century architecture and design, which provided MRTN architects with the direction for the design and materiality of the home. The home follows the contour of the site, stepping down from the entry to the lower living level at the far end. Changes in level are defined by concrete blockwork blade walls which run from outside to inside, framing views of surrounding bush and water views of the bay. The roof is conceived as a taut black plane that is draped over the blade walls. The extension of the walls and coverage of the soffit carefully laid out to provide shading from summer sun to north-facing glazing.
Construction of the Essendon’ Pop-Up house’ is a cutting edge designed by Figr Architects and built by Natural Build Vic. The Pop-up House attempts to counter the status quo of a new family home in the established residential setting of Essendon. The cantilever design double-storey house consists of three bedrooms, carport/covered outdoor space, workshop, powder room, designer kitchen, open plan dining/living, covered outdoor entertainment area, parents retreat, north-facing terrace and walkable net/outdoor playroom. The home is situated on a 340sq m block and has a building floor area of 198sq m. Situated among predominantly single storey dwellings, the site is landlocked on three sides with a double-storey multi-unit building at its rear boundary.
The owners were looking for an architecturally advanced and designed home incorporating as many curves and circles as possible. The initial brief was one of curves and circles representing the natural environment more so than straight horizontal and vertical lines. The quality of the performance of the home was an important request by the owners due to its location high in the Strzelecki Ranges. Using passive house principles, the owner, architect and builder felt it was truly the best building system to achieve a low energy, comfortable and healthy home. The home has been designed and built to ensure that the owners will never need to pay electricity and gas costs for the duration of the life of the home.
The builder and architect worked closely together with the client to realise their design brief. The site was complex and small, and its shape made the set-out work very critical. The design brief was to ensure all natural materials used would remain true to their nature and be placed with excellence. This build features a new to Australia concrete product that Jorant has pioneered its use and placement of with the manufacturers to achieve CLASS 1 finishes to walls, floors, soffits and benches. Additionally, the use of a special eco-friendly timber further treated with the Japanese technique known as ‘Shou Sugi Ban’ will allow the owners a lifetime of maintenance-free enjoyment and beauty. This is a truly unique design with timeless elegance, forming part of the landscape and tranquil environment.
The project involved creating a home that was intimate for a family of five, but also spacious enough for them to enjoy with their extended family and friends. The hero of the exterior is the use of imported Danish bricks, which links the home to the client’s brief of European inspired architecture, and the integration of raised planter boxes to bring the garden up to the first floor. Suspended concrete slabs were used across all floor levels to provide the feeling of solidity that the brick and concrete façade exudes. The home utilises the best in heating, cooling, hot water services and home automation systems. Protection from the harsh Melbourne sun in summer was a critical consideration in the design. Great attention was put into operable shading systems for the enormous expanses of glazing and considerable amounts of thermal protection via quality claddings and insulation. Finishes include polished granite floors which flow from outside to inside, Turkish Limestone bathroom tiling, Italian marble benchtops finishes, custom finished American Oak floors and joinery, and most notably, the long format bricks imported from Denmark. A resounding feature of the home is the ribbon staircase which greats visitors as they enter the home.
The residence is a landmark home befitting its Melbourne bayside location. The design brief was functional yet refined. Evoking both transcendent experience and familial comfort, the residence is an ideal backdrop for a family who love to entertain. This offers endless variations of apertures of light and landscape. Operable glass walls delineate the interior, seamlessly dissolving into the homes weathered timber shell upon request. A robust shell of concrete, composed of precisely selected reclaimed timbers, contains the kitchen, family and living quarters; this is a family home designed for rest and for play.
The project is a truly unique three-storey new build dwelling, built on a small 860sqm corner site. The five-bedroom property boasts a spa, lap pool, sauna and massage rooms, multiple living zones, a dual height art gallery, library, and a workshop with custom stainless-steel joinery, to list some of the many luxurious features of the home. A Delos “healthy living” system includes water filtration, mechanical HEPA air filtration, and circadian rhythm lighting – all designed around a healthy building. Post-tensioning concrete slabs for large, uninterrupted floor plates, and an operable concealed basement lid, for additional parking or play, on top with an all-purpose synthetic turf surface.
This development consists of a unique trio of bespoke homes, each with their own personality but unified by the same palette of timeless materials. At the heart of the design, and at the heart of each townhouse, is the concept of an individual core, including a signature BE Architecture staircase, servicing each home from its private carpark. The façade features restrained aesthetics of white roman bricks paired with pale concrete, with each brick laid by hand and all concrete poured in-situ. Internally, three-metre-high ceilings, with floor to ceiling, fully recessed and flush windows promote light and openness.
An Orchard Piper development, inspired by a European style Loggia, it holds a strong presence and posture in its tree-lined residential landscape. Defined by its rolling concrete arches expressed within a simple form, the project is the manifestation of a collaboration between renowned designers Jolson Architecture & Interiors, taking the lead on the buildings form, with Myles Baldwin Design integrating the building into a lush landscape blurring the line between indoors and out. The buildings form, and placement is complimented with high-quality architectural elements such as Secco Thermally Broken Steel Windows throughout, Poliform cabinets, 3m high ceilings, Olivari door hardware, European oak floors, stone kitchens with European appliances and a fully finished basement. The building intent was to provide luxury apartment living to the high-end market. Spread across two floors, the building provided ten luxury apartments in a range of two and three bed options.
The brief of this project was to transform the existing property into an energy-efficient home while recycling as much material; preserving existing structures and fittings was also a top priority. To achieve this, it was critical to ensure that all surfaces were sealed and appropriately insulated, including floors, walls, ceilings, skylights and roof. All existing and new windows were also double glazed for energy efficiency, noise reduction, and to reduce condensation. Double brick walls were used throughout to lower the thermal transmission between interior and exterior areas, as well as reducing condensation. Hydronic heating panel system and combination boiler were used to reduce the carbon footprint and for energy efficiency. Split System air-conditioning heating and cooling units were also added for extra temperature control. On top of all this, 12 LG neon2 350-watt solar panels were used to reduce the carbon footprint of the home as well as adding a renewable energy source.
Cote D’Azur marble provides a bold statement with contrasting grey-brown veining and hints of red. The marble slabs were specifically selected to complement the cool grey tones of the cabinetry and warm tones of the custom-made, recycled hand-designed timber handles. Additional storage is in the adjoining walk-in pantry. A shadow-line detail splits the mass of the island benchtop to give the appearance of levitation. Custom designed timber handles wrap around the corner of the drawer fronts providing a hint of retro styling. Recycled Blackbutt timber offcuts were used to fabricate the facade panels. Swiss made appliances, European tapware, a chilled water/boiler tap, and waste disposal finish off the design, providing all the necessities for modern-day living.
The Kitchen was built to an exceptional standard, with an emphasis on high-quality materials and unique features. The construction included upgrading all existing timber windows to double glazed windows, dismantling the existing conservatory and redesigning the new one during construction and rebuilding the existing subfloor to create a consistent level throughout the home. The design features a rangehood made from patina aged brass, flush-finish panel door to a pantry off Kitchen, retained and refurbished period ceilings, French oak flooring, Neolith Stone from CDK throughout Kitchen, kitchen Zip tap from Zip water, incinerator, black stained timber veneer from Elton Group, two-pac shaker profile on cabinetry and Sub Zero fridge, with Miele appliances in the Kitchen.
The Kitchen and butler's pantry are both fitted with high-quality vinyl wrap cabinetry that has anti-fingerprint technology and Oberon style facings. Kitchen joinery includes generously sized pot drawers, cutlery drawers, and an integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher with soft close hardware and finger pulls throughout. The kitchen benchtops are made from reconstituted stone with 60mm square edges and waterfall sides to the kitchen island bench. Bosch appliances have been installed, which include two ovens in the Kitchen and an additional oven in the butler's pantry to allow for convenient, multi-use living.
The layout of this space invites an abundance of natural light using a skylight and choice of light colour palette. Everything has been considered for comfort and luxury, with double vanity, a monsoon round polished shower head as well as chrome easy clean silicon nozzle hand shower. The utilisation of large tiles minimises the grout lines. All plumbing fixtures and fitting were in polished chrome to keep it simple and timeless. Round backlit Reflekta LED round pencil edge mirrors to finish it all off.
The master ensuite has a key design feature being the four-metre curved shower. This was built to an exceptional standard, with an emphasis on high-quality materials and unique features. The bathroom also included Neolith Stone from CDK for vanity, including stone-clad drawer fronts, Astra Walker fittings, Japanese mosaic tiles, and floor ceramic tiles. Polished plaster on the walls and ceilings, a custom pocket for glazed shower screen doors, a double glazed skylight above the curved shower and a Haven bath from Apaiser complete this luxury bathroom.
