Presented by Houses magazine, this behind-the-scenes event will look at how architects have collaborated with their clients to create homes that reflect the way we live today.

Andrew Maynard of Melbourne-based practice Austin Maynard Architects, along with client Meahan Callaghan, will share the story behind Mills, the Toy Management House – a playful home with a floor that is a giant toy box.

Brisbane-based architect Stuart Vokes of Vokes and Peters, with his client Louise Fry, will explore the design and processes that led to the Mt Pleasant Walled Garden in Perth. The reconfiguration of this home formalizes a garden around the existing house with a suite of brick enclosures.

To reserve a place at this event, go here. Tickets include light refreshment and a copy of Houses magazine.
