Our houses


Design lovers went behind the scenes to hear how two Brisbane-based architects and their clients have worked together to negotiate issues of site, climate, sustainability, history and context to create homes that reflect the way we live today.

In-Between Room by Phorm Architecture and Design
At the home where singer/songwriter Grant McLennan of The Go-Betweens once lived, Paul Hotston of Phorm Architecture and Design has created an “in-between” room connected to an existing Queenslander. Paul and his clients Biba and Fletcher Wythes discussed the creation of this new space in relation to the cultural significance of this site.

Christian House by James Russell Architect
James Russell, the architect behind the 2013 Houses Awards’ Australian House of the Year, created this new residence in Brisbane’s north for clients David and Kate Evans. James, together with the clients and the builder Geordie Dickson, took us through the design and construction process behind this home, which like James’s other work, engages with nature and embraces and celebrates Queensland’s subtropical conditions.
