You've already seen our favorites in Sydney and on Australia's southern coast. Next, take a look at four homes we love on Australia's eastern seaboard.
The home’s stretched veranda form is a model of economic and democratic design of extruded and repeated elements. It’s no accident that this generates major cost savings, thermal efficiencies, and is generous in shared amenities for all residents. The ter
