Just walk down the street, take a drive through any neighbourhood or research your next property investment.
There’s such a variety of houses we often take their architectural style for granted, never stopping to contemplate why they might look like that.
From the architectural inception of Australia’s Colonial Style homes pre-1840 to the sustainable modular abodes being built for the future, each era in the evolution of this country’s architectural history abounds with its own distinct design features.
European influences certainly began Australia’s architectural journey and decades later, with the rise of travel in the 1920s, the European influence re-emerged in Australian culture — particularly with the art deco wave, which is still noted for some real gems.
Modernism blossomed in Australia after the Second World War, and it’s a style that remains fresh today: Clean lines, large windows and progressive design make for a home that feels simultaneously classic and contemporary.
So whether you prefer a house bursting with history, a sustainable home that looks to the future — or something in between — there’s guaranteed to be a house in Australia to suit you.
