Brad Swartz, director of Brad Swartz Architects, and his client, industrial designer Henry Wilson, will share the collaborative design process behind Laneway Glass House. This project, in the inner-city suburbs of Sydney, is a new three-storey dwelling where elegant detailing of robust materials creates an industrial luxury that strikes a balance between studio and home.
