This AP favourite was featured on the inside cover of The Sydney Morning Herald and Financial Review's Domain magazine this weekend. Written by Amelia Barnes, the piece wonderfully summarised the architectural intent of the project and the complexity of its internal space.

4.  A R C H I T E C T U R E  O N  S H O W.  Collaborative Vision

Over the course of building a project, a unique bond is formed when a homeowner entrusts their vision for living to an architect. Collaboration of this sort is deeply personal for both parties. The client is forced to divulge intimate truths about their home and family life, while the architect reveals the deep seated values that govern their creative process.

Join Eva-Marie on Saturday October 29 at 2pm as she unravels the intricate nature of client-architect exchanges with client Ariana Koller. This discussion will explore the careful balance of communication, trust and respect that allowed Ariana and Eva-Marie's combined vision for House Koller to manifest.

The Architect Prineas team have just returned from a great weekend away in Melbourne where we attended the Design Speaks: Housing Futures Forum along with the HOUSES Awards 17 where the Allen Key House was shortlisted.
