Acquafresca by Pilu
Located in the the newly redeveloped Harbord Diggers in Freshwater, Sydney, the restaurant interiors resemble a casual seaside trattoria you’d find along the Italian coast. It boasts an understated elegance with its stone archways, a communal table, open kitchen and floor-to-ceiling glass bi-fold doors that open onto a terrace featuring alfresco seating and undisturbed views of the ocean.

Interior designer, architect and furniture designer Daniel Boddam reimagines a 1980s home in Sydney’s Upper North Shore.
This Sydney home was in need of a full revamp, for clients who requested a modern image with a mid-century twist. Renowned for creating calm and refined spaces, Daniel Boddam and stylist Studio CD set out to transform the double-storey home into a timeless abode fit for years to come.

Fairlight Residence by Woods & Warner working with the concept that “simplicity is the most complex” Photography by Simon Whitbread
A large-scale contemporary residence situated on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. This unique site is positioned overlooking the expanse of Narrabeen Lagoon & the Tasman Sea.
The local topography is characterised by it’s close proximity to the Australian bushland and rests in duality within a dense suburban environment characterised by 1980’s red brick dwellings of the yesteryear.
This house is flipped to reveal scale by proudly presenting itself to the street, while the rear facade appears as a subtle low-lying modernist pavilion.
The very definition of the Australian lifestyle, this multi-generational home was designed with flexibility in mind.
The core of the home is centred around a prominent double height void, giving the space a civic feel. The large, flexible, open plan kitchen, dining and living zones have been carefully designed to allow the extensive family to come together for social events at various economies of scale.
The void ‘the hero’ of the space is designed to simultaneously manipulate natural light and passive ventilation through responsive, automated louvres. Views, privacy and existing gum trees have been preserved.
