Remaking the Family Home in Australia & New Zealand
Remember what was good about the suburbs? Ample space indoors, gardens for outdoor living and entertaining. These ideals are no longer confined to outer urban areas, they are present in the suburbs and inner city. New innovative and adaptable homes with space to live and play are being created both near and far.
Stuart Hamilton, along with some of our best architects, challenges the notion that we must choose between amenity and outdoor space, between small city apartments and huge houses miles from anywhere.
New Suburban showcases thirty houses that offer brilliant alternatives through intelligent and original architecture: new houses plus imaginative makeovers in both city and suburbs.
