Here are our top five best home designs in Australia, according to an Australian Real Estate Association survey.
What is a house?
A house is an architectural, structural and functional element used for housing, commercial or recreational purposes.
It usually consists of one or more separate rooms or areas, with one or two common rooms.
A house also has a common entrance and a common entryway.
The term “house” is also used for a combination of a dwelling and a residence, such as a cottage or cottage-like building.
The list of the top 50 best house designs in 2018 includes four of the most prominent architectural designs of the 20th century:the Sydney house by David Rutter, the Sydney house, designed by Richard Laidlaw, the Rutter house, built by the Ritvo Brothers, and the Sydney home by John Stoddard.
The Sydney house has been compared to the Rodeo Drive house, with its distinctive glass roof.
The Rutter House was built in 1897, but the Sydney House was completed in 1908.
The Melbourne house by John Pannell and Frank Lettie, also known as the Sydney cottage, was completed on June 30, 1910.
It was designed by George Gurdon.
The Pannells’ house is said to have been built with a “soulful, gentle and warm atmosphere”, which drew visitors to the property.
In 2017, Melbourne architect David Wills unveiled his home design for the city, which included a “beautiful glass roof”.
