Burwood Road Apartments is a project designed by DROO. Hidden behind a listed 19th century shophouse of inner city Melbourne, the contemporary extension skillfully navigates a very tight site to wrap two boutique apartment buildings over a retail space around a central courtyard. The gold finned facade screen creates angled privacy from the street and provides an animated play of light and shadow throughout the day. Photography by Willem-Dirk du Toit

Leacroft House designed by Paul Raff Studio combines bold, modern architectural form with sustainable green strategies for the 21st century family lifestyle. From the street you see the Algonquin limestone front façade, fleuri cut with honed and polished pieces. The cladding layout forms a playful pattern between the darker limestone pieces on the lower volume of the house and lighter pieces used on the upper volume. With small punch windows knit into the precise cladding layout, the front of the house affirms its durability and function. Photography by Ben Rahn / A-Frame
