A Taste of our Collections...

Collection Louvre Windows Louvre windows aren't what they used to be. These days they seal well and look great. Plus they maximise natural ventilation.

Collection Open Plan Living Open plan living has been the dream for many families compartmentalised into tiny rooms away from all the action. But to get open plan living right isn't as easy as knocking down all the walls. To avoid being left with a cavernous, noisy space, plan your open plan living so there are breakaway spaces - perhaps a nook for reading or a window seat. Lots of soft furnishings can also help to reduce noise. And don't forget lots of storage, because even with open plan living, you don't want everything out in the open!

Collection Lounge Suites Everyone needs a beautiful but comfortable lounge suite to relax in. Lounge suites make or break the living area, so make sure you get it right.

Collection Staircases Staircases come in all shapes and sizes, but the best examples of staircases are features of the home in and of themselves.

Collection Concrete Floors Concrete floors offer a hard-wearing (virtually indestructible) surface and can also help to moderate temperature inside the home. The range and variety of concrete floors available is mind-boggling. You can expose the aggregate, polish, add oxide to colour the concrete or a combination of all of these options. The best designs utilise the thermal mass of concrete to absorb the sun's heat to keep the home warmer in winter. Pair concrete floors with clerestory windows facing the sun to achieve this win-win situation.

Collection White Kitchens White is a safe and elegant choice for the kitchen. Take a look at all the white kitchens we've featured on Lunchbox Architect...
Collection Skylights Skylights are a brilliant way to bring natural light into the home - especially when you're in a built up area with no sweeping vistas.

Collection Joinery Joinery can be expensive to build, but the payoffs are huge. Whether it's designed to hide everything away, or to put your favourite items on show, clever joinery can make the most of even the smallest spaces. And the difference between well-made, quality joinery and the stuff you pick up from IKEA speaks for itself in how well it lasts and how long it looks fantastic (good joinery won't peel). Check out some of the Joinery projects featured on Lunchbox Architect for some inspiration for your own project.
Collection Native Garden Native gardens attract birds to your home and are often drought tolerant - perfect for our harsh climate. Embrace native gardens!

Collection Urban Homes Urban homes come with a lot of constraints. Tight sites, neighboring houses, heritage controls and planning regulations affect how urban homes are designed. Obviously constraints breed innovation because architecturally designed urban homes are some of the most innovative and interesting houses around. At Lunchbox Architect we pride ourselves on sourcing the best examples of small urban homes. We argue that homes don't have to be huge to great. In fact, small urban homes are easier to maintain, cheaper to run and, when designed right, a joy to live in.
