Architecture never ceases to surprise us and incite our imaginations, an effect proven throughout this issue. Our annual prefab feature goes to show that prefab design and manufacturing processes are ever-expanding and evolving.

Meanwhile, the renovation of a “ballsy, brutalist” 70s office building in Melbourne into an eclectic and personal home hints at the adventurously creative spirit of its owners; green magazine’s own art director and Maddison Architects director, Drew Carling. Similarly innovative is a Victorian coastal retreat by and for Ben Edwards of Studio Edwards, comprised of three shipping containers that tread lightly on the earth below.

A Perth family home straddles time and place through its reverent, modern reinterpretation of local architectural history. Not to mention it straddles space, too – this home was built in the backyard of another property.

Across the country in Queensland, a family has gone the extra mile to create a home that embodies their commitment to sustainability, health and local industry.

Both of our garden features are triumphant victories against tricky odds; one in a harsh, coastal environment and the other on a small footprint.

Finally, we discover the many and varied treasures of Daylesford, Kyneton and Trentham.
