At Grand Designs Australia Magazine we believe in the transformative power of good design. This magazine showcases the best houses from the Australian and UK TV shows along with projects by Australian homeowners, architects, builders, renovators, owner-builders and designers. In each issue, Editors Peter Maddison and Kate St James, scour the countryside to bring you the most stunning designer homes, many of which have not yet been seen on TV, and tell the roller coaster story of how design facilitates lifestyle. Featured homes cover a diversity of styles and budgets; some new builds, some conversions, and some renovations. Each issue is a also sourcebook of quality design – complete with floor-plans, look guides, designers, contacts and signature products to inspire a rethink of your own home space.

About the TV show:

Grand Designs Australia TV show is hosted by Peter Maddison and tells the stories of new home and the people who are building them. This popular series charts the process of elaborate design projects undertaken by self builders.

This issue: Grand Designs Australia issue 6.3 the main features include:

This issue we  feature one of Australia’s most in-demand designers, Noosa-based Di Henshall, who’s work features in a spectacular Queenstown home with an incredible backdrop of snow-capped mountains (page 150) — a far cry from her Sunshine Coast base.

Other projects this issue include homes, interiors, kitchens and bathrooms in many stunning locations, including one close to where I now live, the Ocean Shores Chipboard House. When I watched this episode, it brought back memories of when my parents lived in Ocean Shores and our family used to visit them often from Brisbane and the UK. We spent many wonderful years with our young family at the beaches and locations you’ll see in this episode. Described by presenter Peter Maddison as “alarmingly small”, the house makes up for its modest size and honest materials with its ocean views and rainforest backdrop. It’s certainly a home out of the brick-and-tile box.

The Stilt House in New Zealand’s Pukerua Bay is another example of a simple, cost-effective build in the spirit of a traditional Kiwi bach. This modest family home, with its equally modest build price, is a collaboration between families, including architect and lecturer, Guy Marriage, to create a holiday home they could all share. Not having built a home of his own before, Guy said, “I think it’s the birthright and the want of every architect to build their own place.”
