West Village Duplex, Interior Renovation by Studio ST Architect.
The color pallet was kept to a minimum in order to accentuate the materials and their inherent properties. White kitchen cabinets with white corian countertops and a nearly white Novelda Crème limestone bench in the living room achieve the minimalism. A few splashes of color were added by using unique materials such as a Spa Green Quartzite floor found in the kitchen and metallic glass turquoise tiles found in the powder room.
The master bathroom was finished with Inca Gray stone – a dark consistent gray limestone – and 12"x24" Apavisa Limestone porcelain tile. The master bathroom vanity is a custom piece carved out of the Inca Gray limestone which was made in China and shipped to the site.

Balhannah House, Design by Max Pritchard Architect. This substantial home is set in a backdrop of large gum trees with views over endless rolling hills of pasture and vineyards. The long thin form facing north maximizes the use of the sun for winter heating. External louvers over the terrace, may be adjusted for summer shade. Photovoltaic cells on the roof generate electricity, and incorporate a unique feature allowing excess heat to be ducted down to the house to aid winter heating. Roof water is collected in a large underground tank, for use throughout the house.Timber, corrugated iron, stone and weathered steel provide a timeless rural quality in a contemporary style.
