A delightful evening at Garden Variety with @aaron vokesandpeters and @retallackthompson. Thanks for having me!

New issue of Houses is hitting letterboxes this week (check @housesmagazine for a sneak peek of what’s inside)! Cover (second image): Jacaranda House by @sp studio architecture. 📷 @christopherfrederickjones. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For this issue, I wrote a Revisited article on the Rosebery House in Brisbane by Brit Andresen (first image), owned at the time by @greta burkett. This building is part of Andresen O’Gorman’s significant contribution to the evolution of the Queenslander house, celebrating and connecting us to our environment through all the senses. Rosebery House is a highly layered building that intentionally intensifies the experience of the landscape. Being at the home reminds you of your place in the world – you can hear the birds and rain, smell the trees and feel the breezes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I love this snap that @dneus took of @ justineclark and I in the courtyard at Robin Boyd’s Walsh Street House this morning. I have so much to thank Justine for, as my earliest mentor and advocate. She took a chance on me as an architectural student thirteen years ago - and I wouldn’t be where I am now without her. (Now get back to writing that article, Justine!) . . What an inspiring morning all round - @ollywainwright was engaging and articulate as ever, and I enjoyed having a bunch of awesome Australian writers and editors all in the one room. Thanks @boydfoundation @ngvmelbourne @ timothymoore #melbournedesignweek

You might have already got your copy of the latest @housesmagazine as I’m a bit late this time (sorry, was on holidays! 😜) . It’s a goodie 🤗 (and I enjoyed writing about @freadmanwhite & @anonstudio’s Whitlam Place) . In this issue we welcome our new associate editor @gemmasavio . 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 (@walklikemcgann) 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.
02.02.19 is very special for two reasons - it’s the day my mum, Rosemary would have celebrated her 65th birthday and it’s also the day we welcomed @ matty.d to our family. And what a day it was! 💕 @emilysarahgrace . . . Thanks for most of the snaps @jonobutler
