2014’s Craft Catalogue looks at the rise of smaller living spaces in Melbourne’s inner city and the innovative approaches taken by individuals, through material and design to create dynamic and compact spaces in which to live and work.

Increasingly aware of the growing gap between home ownership and rental markets, the owner of this year's home Alex Kennedy saw potential in the double garage at the back of her parents property. Calling on the impressive abilities of friend and interior architect, Sarah Trotter of Hearth Studio, together they’ve created an impressive space, full of light and economical design. Measuring perhaps just over 7m2 in total - this space utilises a clever layout and smart material choices to create a deceptively spacious and functional home with lots of natural light and beautiful details. 

The 2014 Summer Catalogue is a covetous peek into an intimate space imbued with unique work, judiciously selected with appreciation and minimalism in mind.
