Fortitude Valley-based architectural practice, Shaun Lockyer Architects, has created the Terraced House project. Completed in 2014, the contemporary home is located in Brisbane Australia.
According to the architects: “The Terraced House explores the idea of an articulated landscape creating an elevated courtyard to the side of a recalibrated post-war cottage. The house expresses a tactile palette of interior design and exterior materials including blockwork, concrete and timber as a juxtaposition to the original cottage.”

Last month, Sofitel Le Faubourg in Paris re-launched after an extensive re-design by interior designer Didier Gomez, renowned for his work with luxury fashion houses Louis Vuitton, Dior and Kenzo. The new look has been inspired by the fashion cues of the hotel’s neighbourhood and has been designed to resemble an exclusive Parisian couture house.
