The Terrace House: Reimagined for the Australian way of life

With many well-designed buildings, floor plans and beautiful images, this book would be of interest to those in the throes of planning a new home or addition.

The editors Katelin Butler and Cameron Bruhn are well known and active in the Australian housing industry, and the quality of houses profiled in this weighty 250+ page book is high. While the majority of the profiled projects don’t have a sustainability focus, some designers will be familiar to Sanctuary readers, such as Andrew Maynard Architects, Benn + Penna Architecture and Tribe Studio. The book is also filled with interesting facts: “The format of the terrace house, as we know it today, resulted from the Great Fire of London in 1666 [and] a resolve to develop new construction patterns that would inhibit fire spread.”

Edited by Cameron Bruhn and Katelin Butler
