The Portsea beach house designed by Mitsuori Architects is a response to a wonderfully simple brief to create an elegant and practical family beach house. This family holiday home is located on the former rear yard of a historical school building in Portsea on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. The design celebrates the simplicity, clarity and beauty that emerges when form and function come together. The clean geometric forms and a minimalist material palette reflect a restrained design approach that balances pragmatism with aesthetics. Photography by Michael Kai.

Framework House is a project designed by Amos Goldreich Architecture. When the clients asked us to help them design a new extension suitable for themselves and their two children, they wanted us to update the property in a way that would maximise the available space and reconnect different areas while leaving them clearly defined. We felt it was important to reference the separate spaces, both externally and internally, using an asymmetric form that is united by this pale white brick façade. Photography by Ollie Hammick.

This home reno took place during last year’s pandemic providing some challenges and new methods to getting the job done. Photography by Clay Grier.

The design of this home designed by Searl Lamaster Howe Architects was directly shaped by the challenges and opportunities afforded by the combination of two separate apartments in a high-rise near the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, each with exceptional lake and city views and generous outdoor spaces. Six years ago and ten floors away in the same building, SLH designed the clients’ previous residence. An expanded family and a change in lifestyle in which the husband was increasingly working from home, prompted the need for a new home. One key request of the clients – that there be a direct view of Lake Michigan immediately upon entering the apartment – helped define the overall character of the project. Throughout, distinct spaces are defined but rarely by conventional full height walls. Photography by Kendall McCaugherty.
