UnFold 2

We are please to release our second print magazine, UnFold 2.

If you are visiting the InForm office for a meeting, you will receive a copy of the magazine, which tells the story of our clients and our people.

There is something special about hearing our clients affectionately describe the most treasured spaces within their homes.

For the Edwards, it’s the golden room; a space where records are played and cocktails are enjoyed while the kids busy themselves and entertain their parents.   For the Meaghers, it’s the snug; the cosy, dimly lit second living room with an open fire and a velvet couch that envelopes you as you sink in.  For the Pountneys (p.28), it’s the parents’ retreat that, in reality, gets lovingly taken over by their two sons as they settle in to a movie.

In this, the second volume of UnFold, we continue to share the unique stories of our clients and our people.

To request a copy, email us here.



Behind The Scenes: Brighton East

In the lead up to the release of UnFold – which tells the stories of the families that live in our homes and the family businesses who have worked on our site for over 15 years – we photographed the recently completed Brighton East house, where landscaping is currently underway. The home of Samm, John, and their four children; the home is light, bright, and full of the energy of the young, welcoming family.

We can’t wait to share their story this October in our magazine, UnFold.

Preview: Rosanna House

Last month, we spent the day shooting our recently completed Rosanna House for the second volume of UnFold; a magazine we create to tell the stories of our clients and our people.

Home to a design driven client and her busy, young family of four, Rosanna House is all about maximised family time; celebrating the parents’ love of cooking (often in the custom built smoker) and gathering around the dining table. In summer, it’s all about being outdoors; with kids in the pool, doors to the deck wide open, and wet footprints running through to the kitchen.

“A friend recently commented that he’d never really appreciated what a well-designed and built house could feel like – until he came to our home. I think that’s the greatest compliment we can pass on to InForm and the team.”

We’ll be telling the stories of our Rosanna clients, and many more, when we release UnFold 2 in October.

Until then, follow us on Instagram see more outtakes of this beautiful, lively home.

Sneak Peek: Rosanna

We recently photographed our Rosanna clients at home for the next volume of our magazine, UnFold.

The magazine will be published in October. In the meantime, stay tuned via Instagram here.
