This photo was taken a year ago ... and I can’t believe how much has changed since then! 2018 has been a BIG one - a year of growth with some incredible highs and some devastating lows. I started the year grieving the passing of my beautiful mother, who had struggled with a rare neurological disease for nine years. This was closely followed by a relationship breakdown; living alone for the first time; preparing for my sister’s (the one in this pic with me) wedding early in 2019; two amazing European adventures; a flooded apartment; judging the National Architecture Awards, World Architecture Festival awards, Houses Awards and Dulux Colour Awards; farewells to two long-time Architecture Media colleagues and mentors (almost thirteen years of working together); a promotion to editorial director (probably my biggest career leap to date); and to end it, buying my first property (which is right below an apartment that my bestie purchased in the same week). I’m so lucky to have such an incredible network of family, friends and colleagues that has been there for me this year. So thank you!!! And here’s to 2019! 💕

On my way home and reflecting on a great couple of weeks ✨

Highgate Primary School New Teaching Building in Perth by @iredalepedersenhook won a commendation for Educational Architecture at the 2018 National Architecture Awards. This building provides for a variety of experiences, opening views to the surrounding streets and the distant city while allowing an intimacy in literally tracking and mapping direct sunlight, the winter solstice and the beginning and end of the school year. .
Winner of a National Award for Residential Architecture - Houses (New) is Cabbage Tree House by @peterstutchburyarchitecture. This was also the winner of Australian House of the Year at the 2018 Houses Awards. This home encourages its occupants to poetically engage with its undeniably spectacular bushland setting via a series of indoor and outdoor terraces, where the sound of the birds, the smell of the creek and the glistening of the sun’s rays are ever-present.

What a delightful weekend spent in this lovely home perched halfway up Hobart’s Mt Wellington and designed in 1969 by McGlashan & Everist 🌿🌱🍃@clairescorpo @weazy @i.may.tu @alberto_q #duluxstudytouralumni (more in my insta stories) at Ferntree, Tasmania, Australia

Winner of the Lachlan Macquarie Award for Heritage and a National Award for Public Architecture is the Joynton Avenue Creative Centre and Precinct by @peterstutchburyarchitecture in association with Design 5 - Architects for @cityofsydney. I particularly enjoyed the way the arches of the canopy started from within the building, creating private working pods on the upper level, and stretches out to define a generous external public space.

Punchbowl Mosque in Sydney by Candalepas Associates is a winner of a National Award for Public Architecture. This building is an exquisite display of working with concrete and the spatially rich interior uplifts and inspires. .

House on the Coast by @seangodsellarchitects, winner of the 2018 Robin Boyd Award for Residential Architecture - Houses (New). This house continues an exploration of refinement and reduction. The remarkably neutral living platform decluttered my mind in its rationality, rhythm and calming tones. Rather than opening the main spaces out to the views of hillsides populated by an increasing number of rooftops, the home strategically orientates itself into the landscaped hillside with only carefully choreographed openings to the ocean view. @institute_architects_aus #natawards18
Last night the winner’s of the @institute_architects_aus National Architecture Awards were announced ... which means I can now share some of my journey with @richardkirkarch @kevino_brien @jill_snowqueen and @charles_wright_architects. First post is snippets of krakani lumi in Tasmania by @taylorandhindsarchitects, winner of the Nicholas Murcutt Award for Small Project Architecture. In this place, I felt an authentic connection to community and culture, a strong awareness of landscape and our need for shelter within it.
