Discover How Customised Design Can Maximise a Home

In this episode of Houzz TV Live, Australian architect Rebecca Naughtin speaks with Olivia Stuckey of the Houzz communications team. Rebecca highlights several renovations in which customisation played a large role.

For one home, she designed a curved brick wall to follow a bend in the property line. In another, she created a bespoke worktop (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, Rebecca fitted custom-made floating cabinetry to maximise storage in a living room, while in another project, she designed a cosy nook beneath a staircase for a family dog. In each case, thoughtful design has made the most of the property for the homeowners.

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.

Loved seeing all your projects Rebecca. Loved the space under the stairs for the dog even though it was quite accidental. Great Work!

I would like to see some interviews of what was done and why with Architects in NSW.

also do they only do projects in their part of the state, or in their state, or do they do more remote locations as well.

I like this style of interview and found it great to watch

but also great to get a glimpse of the personality of the architect
