Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - LIFESTYLE - Words and images from by Stephen Crafti (Mur­doch Books), $79.99

Af­ter years of designing homes for oth­ers, to fi­nally have the free­dom to cre­ate some­thing of their own could be con­sid­ered the ul­ti­mate re­ward for an ar­chi­tect, au­thor Stephen Crafti says. Crafti has been writ­ing about ar­chi­tec­ture and de­sign for two decades and felt it was im­por­tant to show di­ver­sity in the way ar­chi­tects live, from the sim­ple cottage to the mon­u­men­tal state­ment. “One thing re­vealed in this book is that ar­chi­tects de­sign their homes just for them­selves, rather than hav­ing the word ‘re­sale’ in the fore­front of their minds,” Crafti says. His vi­sion for

is not only to show how ar­chi­tects have brought their dreams to life but to en­cour­age oth­ers to test the bound­aries with their own living space.
