Warm Welcome

Nest Architects has turned an impossibly cold, constraining “mongrel” of a cottage in Fitzroy North into a warm little home, rich in sunlight and full of sweet, adaptable spaces for a young family to interact with each other and their neighbourhood.

Beneath The Skin

A Deft Touch

Past And Present

Issue 54

The ship-shape of this Albert Park house reminds one of a liner that has slipped its moorings. Occupying a triangular parcel of land of only 48-square metres, it is a wonderful example of what can be achieved on a site that would normally be dismissed for redevelopment.
