Landscaping plays a very important role in the creation of ‘place’. A well designed landscape can compliment a piece of architecture and make a building a home. The Garland garden by Landscapology in inner-Brisbane, exhibits all these qualities. Its curved lines and gabion walls give this property a sense of true character. Prepare to be inspired – Landscapology – The Garland Garden.
This is an award winning design by Nettleton Architects in Sydney. Its lightweight construction and clever detailing give the house the appearance of floating above the ground and works in with the natural contour of the site. The architect has also ensured light makes its way into the spaces in innovative ways creating a spacious and airy feel and links to the surrounding bushland.

Prefabricated homes are becoming a real housing option for many around the world. I love the simplicity of this design, with timber cladding to help tie it into its surrounding context. Could serve as the perfect holiday house or granny flat, lets hope prefabricated homes grow in popularity as a real option in Australia.

“In this Design, we sought to embody the iconic elegance of the 1950/60′s modernist style. The Facade drew inspiration from a classic styled stereo cabinet, with the spaced timber battens at opposing ends mimicking the speaker elements. The glazing to the rear of the residence takes full advantage of the northern orientation while providing transparency across the main level of the house.”
