In Perth’s Mosman Park, the Bay View House is striking in the distance, with its suspended second floor extending out and over the open plan ground floor. Supported primarily by a sculptural column, the lack of immediate walls, and the glass panelling create a welcoming entrance point to a house that is sheltered by a dominant cube above. (more…)

Abbotsford, Melbourne is hot right now. On the edge of the Yarra River but within strolling distance of bar and restaurant-packed Collingwood, Fitzroy and Richmond, this sleepy neighbourhood of old workers’ cottages and factories is just a hop from Melbourne’s CBD, but feels a world away.
Seduced by the area’s charms, design-led developer Kalex – helmed by Kyp Bosci – is developing Park & Raphael, a series of 19 ‘secluded yet connected’ luxury townhouses in this emerging quarter. “This pocket of Melbourne has the best of both worlds,” says Bosci. “On the one hand it is secluded – nestled amid parkland – and on the other it’s connected to the CBD, the inner north and the city’s entertainment precincts. That’s something unique in Melbourne and only Abbotsford can offer.”
Im sure it’s no surprise to many of you to hear that we like art. We like fine, contemporary, design, architecture, dance, film and anything in between, and especially pieces that merge disciplines. Which is why we’re excited about the current exhibition on display at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art in Melbourne. It’s the first major showing of internationally acclaimed Polish artist Monika Sosnowska in the southern hemisphere, following her recent site specific commission for Central Park, New York.
Originally trained in fine arts but renowned for her psychologically charged architectural installations, Sosnowska has created a series of works that will span across all four of ACCA’s galleries. Each work reinterprets or offers a counterpoint to the large, angular interior of the gallery. The furthest corner of Gallery 4 will feature an oppressive concrete bunker, and Gallery 3 will become one of Sosnowska’s famous ‘institutional corridors’ – having the illusion of distance, but the reality of being far too narrow to enter without crawling.
Influenced by the changing social, political and architectural landscape of her native Warsaw, this exciting exhibition is not to be missed. The exhibition runs until Sunday September 20th 2013.
