5. Could I borrow or hire it if I needed it?I’m a huge fan of the ‘sharing community’ and tool libraries, where instead of having to own everything you need in life, you can share them with others in your community. If you own a lawnmower, does your neighbour really need one too? If your brother has a chainsaw, do you really need to buy one as well?

Hover HouseDesigned by Bower Architecture This is an open and airy courtyard house, still within easy reach of the beach. The courtyard typology has become popular for modern beach houses; a way to protect the home and occupants from sometimes hostile coastal weather. This style is especially popular in coastal towns where the home doesn’t have the benefit of sweeping ocean views. Instead, architects create an inward looking home with a beautiful green internal space. Courtyards provide a laid-back space for parents to relax and kids to play whilst still feeling connected to the rest of the home.

A CONTEMPORARY EXAMPLE: This new residence on the Mornington Peninsula maximises its battle-axe block, which has influenced the entire design of the house. Designed as a composition of geometric parts, two parallel rectangular forms – accommodating the bedroom wings – are intersected by the transverse living area. This achieves a gentle sense of enclosure and privacy around a grassy courtyard, while taking advantage of the northern light. Salvaged material has been used to add texture and interest along with a palette of recycled timber, steel and stone.

Of course, this is exactly what Christian would love to do. I have to assume it is monstrously pricey and out of reach (?).
