In my former life as an Architecture student in Australia, I really fell in love with buildings that totally blur the border between outside and in. I may get flamed for this, but I think that the Aussies are pretty much the world experts at it. And it totally makes sense as much of Australia has a climate that is conducive to outside living through much of the year (at least compared to North America!).
So I thought I would share the work of some of my favourite Aussie Architects and their outdoor-indoor spaces.
The Kerry and Lindsay Clare's Thrupp and Summer House at the top of the post and directly above is a great example of this style of living. Large sliding doors and louvered windows (try doing this in Canada!!) bring the outside in. Clare Design is one of my favourite firms.
