Since April last year, ADR has produced a wealth of lookbooks that cover excellent examples of Australian interior design and architecture. For today’s piece, we’ll take a look back at some of our favourites!

Many of the projects featured are from our IDEA 2021 finalists. IDEA 2022 is now open for entries, celebrating the best Australian interior design projects and the studios and designers behind them.

For this lookbook, we are stepping outside to the great outdoors. With Australia’s (mostly) spectacular weather, many homes would be remiss for not taking advantage of it.

This lookbook exemplifies how each designer approaches opportunities or challenges presented by outdoor living spaces, and ultimately, creates wonderous refuges for every lifestyle.
