Brisbane Riverbank House.


Presented by
Paul Owen, Founder, Owen Architecture

Paul Owen, founder of Owen Architecture, will present Brisbane Riverbank House alongside his client David Lim, a cosmetic and laser specialist.

The design for Brisbane Riverbank House creates two large courtyards by placing a new living pavilion next to the existing 1930s house. The riverside courtyard is a family lawn and garden area that overlooks the Brisbane River and enables an inclusive and relaxed family environment. The street-side courtyard is a large entry court bounded by garages for the owner's collection of cars.


Presented by

Dr Davin Lim is a cosmetic and laser dermatologist. He is an expert in laser management of acne scars, pigmentation and vascular conditions. Over the past decade Dr Lim has published in international journals and presented at international conferences and meetings with more than twenty credits to his name.

Hush House.


Presented by
David Welsh, Co-founder, Welsh + Major

David Welsh, co-founder of Welsh + Major, will share the fascinating story behind Hush House, joined by client Kellie Hush, a fashion entrepreneur and journalist and former editor-in-chief of Harper’s BAZAAR Australia.

The Hush House is an adaptation of a two-bedroom Federation semi into a vibrant contemporary home for Kellie and her family. Set atop a ridge on a sliver of land in Sydney's east, a new volume made of waterstruck bricks crowned with a white steel lantern contains a series of single and double-height volumes for art, friends and family.
