Australian Architect Shows the Benefits of Customization

In this episode of Houzz TV Live, Australian architect Rebecca Naughtin speaks with Olivia Stuckey of the Houzz communications team. Naughtin highlights several home renovations in which customization played a large role. For one home, Naughtin designed a curved brick wall to follow a bend in the property line.

In another, she created a custom countertop (called a bench in Australia) that juts out from the kitchen to keep guests out of the cooking zone. For a client she met through Houzz, Naughtin designed custom floating cabinetry (called joinery) to maximize storage in a living room. And in another project, she designed a cozy nook
beneath a staircase for a family dog.

All of the projects showcased on this clip were lovely. Rebecca clearly is not only a great listener but observer bringing together historical perspective (she references the Edwardian era) and contemporary sensibility in terms of materials, light and space. So much fun!

This one’s a hit! Interesting exchange between them; brief yet in-depth insights into various facets of the architect’s work (bespoke and preservation) and her development processes with clients; plus FUN. The friendly, toasty dog! Great feature on an excellent architect artist.
