MAK­ING A HOUSE INTO A HOME

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - NEWS -

WHAT makes Aus­tralia’s ‘best’ home? That’s the ques­tion posed by Fox­tel’s new se­ries I Own Aus­tralia’s Best Home. Aus­tralian ar­chi­tect Nick To­bias (far left) and his co-hosts, in­te­rior de­sign­ers Gil­lian Khaw and Tim Leve­son, tra­verse the coun­try in search of our most im­pres­sive place to live.

But while they show some drool-wor­thy abodes (each pre­sen­ter vis­its, chats to the own­ers and stays overnight for the full ex­pe­ri­ence), as To­bias ex­plains, just be­cause a place is big and grand doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily make it Aus­tralia’s ‘best’.

“Some­times you can have the world’s best ar­chi­tect, the most amaz­ing site and all the money in the world … but it doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily mean it will feel like a ‘home’,” To­bias says. “That’s the as­pect of [this se­ries] I find re­ally in­ter­est­ing.”
