Sustainability and Nature Inform the Design of This Long, Slanted House

Set beside a nature reserve, the house is deliberately camouflaged among the greenery.

Tess Kelly

In the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, there lies a rare, sought-after pocket that’s full of trees, wildlife, and a winding stretch of a local waterway. Far more lush than other neighborhoods with equal proximity to the city center, the Gardiners Creek area is a unicorn of a locale that residents rarely want to leave. So when a young family somehow secured a lot, it called Clare Cousins Architects to imagine a new house on their prized property.

Associate architect Brett Wittingslow worked closely with Clare herself to create a forever home for the clients, who requested that sustainability and a connection to the abundant vegetation take priority in the plans. “They were quite specific in the views they wanted to capture,” Brett recounts. “There are high treetops towards the west, where the sun sets,

Zephyr Shares How to Design a Delectable Kitchen for Entertaining at Home

Take Advantage of Fun Technology

Kitchen appliances can prompt a party state of mind just as easily as a cheese board and a favorite playlist. The new Roma Groove Wall by Zephyr is a kitchen ventilation hood with built-in Bluetooth® speakers that streams music from any Bluetooth®-compatible device. It offers functionality such as playing/pausing music, skipping tracks, or changing the volume directly from the hood itself using the built-in Bluetooth® controls. With its quality sound, powerful performance, and striking contemporary design, Roma Groove turns the kitchen into the ultimate listening lounge.

Embrace a Convivial Layout

Opening the kitchen to adjoining spaces and opting for a kitchen island helps spark connection. An island range hood, such as the Lift Downdraft by Zephyr, is a space-efficient solution that rises to the occasion with a touch of a button. It discreetly hides behind the cooktop, range top, or range and once powered

How the pandemic has put flexibility front and center in home design

“While there are definitely some design changes we’re making, we also want to be careful of an overreaction to the current situation and design things that don’t make sense 18 months from now,” says Bill Ramsey, a principal with KTGY Architecture and Planning in Denver.

“For example, home schooling is a big issue right now, but we don’t see that as a long-term need so we’re not designing homes with a school room as part of the floor plan,” he adds. “Instead, we’re focused on flexibility so that there is a place to do virtual school in the short term that can work for some other need in the future.”

Just as we’ve learned to pivot and adjust to a new way of living, so have our homes. Now architects are taking into account the way people are using their homes to make new designs more relevant.

“Flexibility is key,”
