Mark it in your diary! Our Houses Melbourne is on 10 July. Over the past decade, Ronnen Goren @dlonghouse and his partner Trace have worked closely with architect Timothy Hill to realize a scheme that embodies their passion for hospitality, food and farming, and traditions reinvented – resulting in the Daylesford Longhouse – "a tree change project.” Timothy Hill, founder of Hobart and Brisbane-based @partnershill , will share the fascinating story of Daylesford Longhouse, joined by client Ronnen Goren of Studio Ongarato.

Reflecting today, on the life and prolific work of the late Enrico Taglietti. The seminal Canberra-based architect lead a practice that had a long commitment to domestic architecture, with many of his houses receiving awards and praise for the way they engaged with the landscape. Born in Milan in 1926, Taglietti arrived in Canberra in 1956, tasked with designing the Italian embassy. He is highly significant to Australian architecture and, in particular, for his major contribution to the growth of the national capital. He was the recipient of the Australian Institute of Architects 2007 Gold Medal, the highest honour for an individual architect in Australia. Paterson House (1970), Evans House (1970–71) and Mijuscovic House (1983) are three examples of his enduring residential architecture. Over the years, these wonderful homes have been celebrated as part of the @housesmagazine Revisited series (see Houses 88, Houses 111 and Houses 118). Photography: Dianna Snape @diannasnape
