Architects and designers reveal special design elements to put your home in a class of its own TEXT Jessica Matthews, Clare Ryan
This contemporary home is a model of
simplicity. Architect Simon Anderson, from
the University of Western Australia, worked
with a limited palette of materials to create
a contemporary, pared-back look. The bathroom
offers subdued tones of white and grey, while
quirky fittings suit the modern aesthetic. Simon
Anderson, Faculty of Architecture, Landscape &
Visual Arts, UWA, www.alva.uwa.edu.au .
Concrete, copper and stone have been used to
create a raw, minimalist look in this home. The
weight of these materials is offset by a sense of
transparency, created through floor-to-ceiling
glazing and glass balustrades. Richard Szklarz
Architects, www.rsarchitects.com .au.

compare with stone. It has a familiar appeal,
while combining well with modern architecture.
Used at the front of this home, a stone facade
creates a bold and assured look. Nash and
