Coastal living is the theme of this, the February/March issue of Urbis. We’ve got four homes with ocean views, including an award-winning Kapiti Coast bach, architecturally designed homes in Sydney and Queensland and a fabulous Californian renovation.
Our intrepid writer Sharon Stephenson tracks down the five most beautifully designed beach resorts in the world. And Australian correspondent Katrina Lobley meets six creatives living in – and changing the face of – Sydney (and tells us exactly where to eat, drink and shop the next time we hop the ditch). We profile three New Zealand makers – in Wellington, London and New Plymouth – about what they do and how they do it. And we tell you what you should be taking to the beach before the summer ends.
