Aus Design Review
Today’s feature Aus Design Review is the account linked to the online version of Niche Media’s architecture and design publications – and it’s a little bit architecturally Extra with a capital E.
Big picture and exteriors rather than interiors and decor, we’re all about their gram’s favourite camera angle – shooting from the outdoors looking into the home. This perspective gives us a good insight into the mentality of the architect and client, and how they perceived the home fitting into the landscape, as well as showing us how the lucky inhabitants are able to bring the outdoors in, and visa versa.
While the name of their page may begin with ‘Aus’, they certainly like to punctuate the Aussie design offerings with a little International residential design. Everyday you’ll travel the world, from Texas, to Japan, to the English countryside. Follow the links through to their website to find out the extra juicy details of the build.
Their website shows off all kinds of differently designed spaces, from veterinary clinics looking ultra fresh, to market-based tapas destinations and cocktail bars. For those a little more involved in architecture, they’re also kind of a big deal when it comes to relaying news, events, and resources; such as an industry job board and architecture and design magazines. It’s all there, really.
Why do we love this page? It’s for the dreamers. It’s big picture and full of success stories. There’s no fear in those sharp angles and cantilevered beams, no siree!
The bold use of materials reminds us that risks can pay off, and the way that the photos are angled shows some of the surrounding area, revealing a fact that is sometimes forgotten – that architects and clients don’t have to be in the heart of the city to build something ultra modern, nor do they have to be banished to the moors to erect something wild.
Australian design review reminds us to shoot for the stars. Be brave, sisters! You’ve got this.
