In 2018 I was a category judge at the World Architecture Festival Awards in Amsterdam. I was extremely proud to see that a high number of the short-listed projects were houses designed by Australian architects. The rest of the world appeared to be really interested in, and excited about, what we’re up to over here. From Western Australia to Tasmania’s Bruny Island, the homes in this issue of Houses form yet another collection of exemplary residential architecture that celebrates the host of ways we live in this country.
I’d like to officially welcome our new associate editor Gemma Savio. Gemma is a graduate of architecture from the University of Newcastle and has been a director of her own architecture practice for the past five years. Stephanie McGann, who has worked across some of our sister publications for almost two years, joins the Houses team as our assistant content editor. I know they will both make a valuable contribution to the magazine.
