The second in the Villa series - Hawthorn Villa. Keeping much of the original structure but breathing new life inside and reinforcing connections with outdoor spaces. An extension of only 7sqm on the 318sqm site, reconfigured internally to achieve greater funcionality. More lovely photos by @tatjanaplitt to come shortly. 🛠 by @frame_works_melbourne 🌿 design by @mudoffice 🌿 install by @haydnbarlinglandscapes 📸 by @tatjanaplitt

Analysing and exploring the further potential to this low slung beauty with an amazing landscape by @cumingfergusongardendesign. Exciting to see the design grow as it responds to the realities of site levels and that center of the universe (a.k.a. 'the Sun'). Love how architecture can so directly relate to the fundamentals of our world.

Construction soon to start on our Brunswick project with the skills of @crispgreenhomes . Long awaited light and air to a gunbarrel site. Looking forward to seeing this one come out of the ground plumb (with goodbyes said long ago to the slanty existing shanty)

I love a good camp set-up. Most excited by the temporary occupations at Ueno Park, Tokyo as people enjoy the fleeting seasonality of Cherry Blossoms with friends.

The lovingly tendered Hiyo Moss Garden in Komatsu. The dedication of the local landscapers to maintain a solid rug of the stuff is amazing. Off to see some 2300 year old cedars tomorrow.

Inspiring to hear Artist and Architect Marjetica Potrc's lecture last night as part of #melbournedesignweek . Her projects demonstrate the strength of natural water systems and our inherent part in them. Project image: Between the Waters by Marjetica Potrc and @oozearchitects . Looking forward to @cityofmelbourne coming to the party similarly with Yarra Pools proposed by @wowowaarch .

Stoked to see our Kew Villa renovation on Archdaily today. A compact project for a young family finding a property sweet spot. When your home is cosier than a detached house, but a bit larger than an apartment.... read a bit more about it on our link in our bio. 🛠 @themelbournebuilder 📸 @emily_bartlett_photography

Reflecting on each project is a great privilege. So many options, conversations and fine tuning, before the final outcome is revealed at the hands of an adept builder. A new venture of a close friend, @tartisanmelb was a great collaboration, delicious (with freshly baked muffins at site) and insightful to be a part of. We completed design and documentation in a short 60 days. 🛠 by @commercialandcorporatecon , 📸 by @gretajeane

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. 🛠 by @cvs_constructions_pty_ltd
