Product COLORBOND® Steel From the outback to the city, COLORBOND® steel has become a defining element in Australian architecture. For some it’s the colours, for others it’s the ability to achieve technical performance in design that cannot be so easily achieved another way, and for many it’s the innate ability COLORBOND® steel brings to help a building ‘sit’ in its environment. Whatever it is for you, we’ve gathered some of our favourite examples together - enjoy the collection.

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.

Collection New Homes New homes provide the opportunity for a completely custom design. Even on a modest budget, architects can design an affordable new home that’s perfectly suited to your needs.

Collection Passive Solar Design Passive solar design helps to keep your house cooler in summer and warmer in winter - not with expensive machinery, but by harnessing the power of the sun and natural ventilation.

Collection Renovations Renovations and additions to existing houses are the most common architecturally designed homes. The challenge with renovations is to incorporate the style and layout of the existing building with the modern needs of the family. When down well, renovations combine the charm of traditional buildings with the conveniences of modern living.

Collection Apartments Apartments are homes in the sky. Perfect for dense inner-city living, well-designed apartment buildings can create intensity and activity in cities and provide desirable living conditions for residents. Some apartment buildings provide in-building services such as gyms, tennis courts and swimming pools. Lunchbox Architect doesn’t feature apartment building projects, but we proudly feature inspiring examples of architecturally designed apartment interiors.

Collection Affordable Housing Affordable housing is becoming an increasing issue. On Lunchbox Architect, one of our priorities is to feature homes that are affordable for their demographic. Obviously the whole concept of 'affordable' is subjective and geographically specific. In Lunchbox Architect's case, we try to feature homes that are low budget or low cost relative to other homes in the area. You won't see any multi-million dollar mansions here. Instead, you'll find well-designed, affordable homes.
 (via Lunchbox Architect)
Collection Small Houses We love small houses at Lunchbox Architect. Because size does matter, but not in the way you might think… Small houses challenge the architect to create a home that defies its size. Multifunctional spaces, built-in storage and other tricks can be used to make even the smallest houses feel spacious. But most people forget the best part of small house living. You get to spend more time relaxing and enjoying the company of family and friends, because small houses mean so much less to clean and maintain. My Mum always said, 'I don't want a big house, because then I'll just have more to keep clean'. And she's a smart woman, so I reckon she's right!

Collection Heritage Dealing with heritage issues in the design of a new home or renovation can be challenging, but equally the results can be inspiring. The best heritage projects don't simply copy the styles of yesteryear (this isn't a period drama), they take inspiration from the original home to create something modern yet sympathetic and complimentary to the heritage home.
 (via Lunchbox Architect)
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!
 (via Lunchbox Architect)
Collection Outdoor Areas The best spaces often aren't indoors at all. Very often, the architecture of a home is enhanced by the outdoor spaces that surround it. The relationship between indoors and outdoors is particularly important. We see homes that embrace the outdoors, allowing the indoors to bleed into the outdoors spaces with large windows, sliding glass doors, or, in the tropics, no walls at all! Take a look at some of the best outdoor areas featured on Lunchbox Architect. Check out some of the projects demonstrating Outdoor Areas featured on Lunchbox Architect

Collection Sustainable Houses Woah. Sustainable Houses is a broad statement and a word which is so often overused. All of the houses we feature on Lunchbox Architect incorporate some aspects of sustainability — a water tank, a shiny array of solar panels, or a passive solar design because everyone should be making an effort. But there are some homes which take it even further and these are the homes that we're happy to stamp as sustainable houses. If we see a home that goes above and beyond in the world of sustainability, we'll list it here so that you can be inspired by their ideas and strategies.
 (via Lunchbox Architect)
Collection Water Collection In such a dry country drone to crippling droughts, water collection is one of the most important aspects of sustainable housing. The bonus is, it's not hard to collect rainwater for reuse in bathroom, laundry and even for drinking with some extra precautions. These days water tanks come in all shapes and sizes, so you can find one that looks great (or that you barely notice) at your place. You can even do what Paul Morgan Architects did at Cape Schanck House and put a water tank in your living room (it'll help keep the house cooler in summer)...

Collection Courtyards Courtyards can be used to gain light, encourage cooling breezes and maintain privacy.

Open up to the outdoors with a sheltered courtyard like one of these.
 (via Lunchbox Architect)
Collection Black Kitchens Black Kitchens are now a thing. In a big way. Black Kitchens are a popular alternative to the more pedestrian white. They are sure to make a sophisticated statement in your home and with the right materials and finishes can be easier to keep clean. With a wide range of black taps and fittings now available, you can make your whole kitchen virtually disappear when not in use. As much as a large space in your home *can* disappear, that is. And although they're still pricey, kitchen sinks never look better than in black. Check out some of the stunning black kitchens we're featured on Lunchbox Architect. Because, when it comes to kitchens, Black is definitely back.

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 Bushfire Proof Houses We all saw the devastating effect bushfires can have on communities as we watched people lose their homes and, tragically, their lives during the Black Saturday Bushfires. With those shocking images still in our minds, there have been a series of regulatory and attitude changes to bushfire prone areas. Yes, it's still possible to safely live in bushfire-prone areas and no, you don't have to start digging a bunker. Modern bushfire-resistant homes use bushfire resistant materials, and glazing to minimise the risk of ember attack. Take a look at some of the bushfire resistant homes we've featured, and learn how to deal with the new new bushfire rating system in the building code. **These are the Bushfire Proof Houses we're featured on Lunchbox Architect**

Collection Glamping Have you heard of glamping? Glamping combines glamour and camping. It's for people who like to explore naturally beautiful landscapes without the hassle of pitching a tent and fending off six and eight-legged fiends. When you think about glamping, think about back-to-basics structures with just enough comfort and style to make it accessible for even the most indoorsy people. When you go glamping, you'll have a real bed, a real toilet and maybe even a TV. But why would you want to watch TV when you're surrounded by beautiful rainforests, rolling hills with grazing sheep or barren but spectacular red dessert? Oh, unless The Bachelor is on, then go ahead! #### Glamping featured on Lunchbox Architect

Collection Shipping Container Houses If you've used the Internet recently (and I *know* you have), you will have seen articles like "7 Shipping Container Homes that will Blow Your Freaking Mind" or "You'll Never Guess What's Inside This Shipping Container" (Spoiler: It's an adorable, pint-sized house). Yep. Shipping Container Houses are all the rage on the Internet. And for good reason. With a bit of skill, a shipping container can be transformed into a beautiful, low-cost, environmentally friendly home. I say a bit of skill because, despite what some advocates (read: marketers) would have you believe, building a container home isn't much easier than building a traditional house. In some ways it's even harder! But don't worry. Lunchbox Architect has developed a thorough - some would say 'Ultimate' - guide to give you the skills to tackle your shipping container project with confidence. And avoid the potential pitfalls.

Collection Modern Farmhouses You probably have an idea of what a farmhouse looks like. But increasingly, architects are experimenting with the traditional farmhouse and creating beautiful modern farmhouses. They still have the laid-back, rustic aesthetic of the past, but they don't skimp on modern style. So if you're pining for life on the land (or maybe just dreaming of your own little hobby farm), take stock of these possibilities. Farmhouses aren't what they used to be. #### Check out the Modern Farmhouses previously featured on Lunchbox Architect:

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.
