The 100 projects featured in this book represent some of the finest examples of contemporary residences from Australian and New Zealand architects and designers. The projects include award-winners, luxury residences, simple beach shacks, inner-city apartments, rural retreats and suburban family homes, reflecting the way we live, or aspire to live, in the 21st century. 

That the projects vary so widely is indicative of the enormous variety and originality in the talent and design direction of architects from 'Down Under'. Although the featured projects are diverse in size, location, use, ambience, budget and taste, they are linked by some sommon themes, allowing them to be grouped into a loosely defined 'Down Under' aesthetic. Flipping through the pages of this beautiful coffee-table book, you will agree that the architects and designers of Australia and New Zealand have much to be proud of.

Restaurant (Space Series 2)


Restaurant (Space Series 2)
272 pages | PDF | 31.05 MB

This issue of Space focuses on all kinds of restaurants from different parts of the world. The restaurants are a visual treat so that we enjoy a riot of colours; an exciting balance of light and dark or pools of glowing soft lights; and sleek or tactile finishes. We can just imagine the excited crowds, or intimate patrons, that these restaurants attract, and the heady aromas that waft!

After going through these designs, you will notice a common thread. Designers the world over are showing a greater concern for the environment. The modern ethic is to salvage and re-use. Discarded (and sometimes even lowly) objects such as Y sockets find a new lease of life as chandeliers. It’s not the collection of designer objects that ensures success but rather how the designer carefully brings diverse elements together.

Designers are forever asked what inspires them. The answer to that is just about everything - movies, books, painting, periods of time in history, location! What is unusual this year is that in Hong Kong/ China, at least three projects were inspired by the humble egg.
