The latest issue of Urbis is all about renovation.

The April/May issue of Urbis Magazine is on sale now and it’s all about renovation. We’ve featured five houses that integrate the old and the new both architecturally and in terms of interior design. We take you inside Auckland Interior Designer Tomi William’s Mt Eden home, Melbourne-ite Simone Haag’s Scandinavian-inspired abode and a charming, revamped Brisbane cottage.

We also talk with some seriously clever makers: Dunedin architect Will Lewis, young design duo George & Willy and one of our favourite fashion designers, Juliette Hogan, who tells us about her most prized possessions.

Finally, we take you to wonderful Wellington, our arts capital, and catch up with six creatives (plus we tell you where to eat, shop and what to see).

Pick up your copy of Urbis Issue 79 from any decent book store or supermarket, or get the digital version here.
