Exciting to see this up and comer today in the soggy and boggy wet. The idea of home as shelter will be all the more appreciated once roof and timber cladding go on. πŸ›  by CVS Constructions

Underneath the clerestory - you're doffing your hat and in the moment breaking a boundary, bringing in soft light, ventilating and making a space for plants to cohabit. From our St Kilda House. πŸ›  by @ardlieprojects , 🌴 by @kate_ardlie_design , πŸ“Έ by @nikoleramsay

Another shot of our Kew Villa.
