Spiegel Haus designed by Carter Williamson Architects is a thoughtfully crafted home in Sydney’s Inner West that celebrates the warmth, strength, and diversity of timber. The sculptural grey ironbark staircase sits at the very heart of this home, flowing out at each floor to help define the path of circulation. Photography by Brett Boardman.
Peekaboo House designed by Carter Williamson Architects is named for the large box window that hangs from the level 1 addition, where the building is strategically shifted to take advantage of views towards nearby Punch Park. The Peekaboo window is symbolic of the generosity and joy embedded into the architecture. The window seat is accessed via a curved bridge, framing a generous curved void, and creates a moment for quiet reflection or play for the young family. From this spot, the best backyard in Balmain, Punch Park, can be enjoyed while still in the home. Photography by Brett Boardman.
Gingerbread House is a project designed by Carter Williamson Architects. From the street, it seems nothing much has changed, as the Gingerbread House takes on its existing street facade composition and gable roof. Unlike its’ neighbouring counterparts on the street, the Gingerbread House has a strong street presence protruding forward with its face to the sidewalk. Photography by Ben Guthrie.
Paul’s Place is a project designed by The Stylesmiths. Creative people yearn for environments that inspire, sparking conversations that lead to inspiration. Such was the brief for Paul’s Place; a home that welcomes both work and play, blurring the line that divides them and facilitating the creation of art. Photography by Gus MacDonald.
Albers House is a project designed by RZLBD. Serene yet outrageous is the presence of Albers House in a typical residential street of Scarborough, Ontario. In its paradoxical behaviour, it both adapts to and resists against the existing conditions, performing very restricted yet radical transformation on the existing space and the neighbourhood.

Maga Apartment is a project designed by Angá Arquitetura. A young couple and Magali, their four-legged daughter, sought to transform this rental apartment into their new home. In order to be able to do that, there were some important points: space, work and colors! The solutions should have personality and be done quickly (the project development and the renovation should be completed in 2 months). The client gave us the keys and, one week after the beginning of the project, went on vacation to the other side of the world. Photography by Carolina Lacaz.
The Bimbadeen House is designed by Lachlan Shepherd Architects to compliment surrounding bush by nestling into the sloping site. The simple, low-lying, protective external form contrasts its light-filled, open planned interior. Photography by Nic Stephens Photography.
When PROJECT AZ designed by PROJECT AZ was approached by a young marketing professional, they had the opportunity to transform a one-bedroom bachelor’s pad into a modern and stylish space created with guests in mind. Photography by Trevor Parker.
