Tony Owen & Partners believes that there is a place for an architecture that is exciting and unique, but that is based on sound commercial principles and realizes our clients’ needs; an architecture which is driven by contemporary ideas and which is combined with a proactive and inclusive approach to consultation with authorities. Tony Owen Partners believes in a “realizable architecture” that challenges the norm. Tony Owen Partners' focus is on gaining successful approvals on prominent residential and commercial developments. This involves the fusion of commercial interest with stylistic and community issues and through extensive consultation with state and local authorities. The city is a laboratory for living. What makes the Urban Realm so interesting is that it is the intersection between the human, environmental, commercial and cultural needs.

Anyone who talks trash on The Beatles is just looking for a fight. It’s as simple as that. There’s a reason they’re empirically and spiritually the most successful band of all time: they did it all, and in a shockingly short timeframe. The Beatles A to Z explores the kaleidoscopic world of the biggest band ever, through a funky alphabetized factoid format. We follow the four boys’ early days playing all-nighters in Hamburg and Liverpool, through their mop-top era and the height of the British Invasion, to experimentation (musical and otherwise) in India. The Beatles remain unrivalled in their effect on music and pop culture. This book revels in their cultural impact, and peeks into the lives of John, Paul, George and Ringo, the iconic albums, the hit singles and the epidemic of Beatlemania. This book looks at the life, art, collaborations, films and friendships and fun surrounding the greatest band of all time – all in a brilliantly illustrated A to Z format.

Fresh flowers are great – everyone loves receiving them. But inevitably they’re already on the way out the door (and into the bin!) by the time they arrive. Plants – living, breathing, life sustaining plants – are where it’s at! Sydney-based authors Lauren Camilleri and Sophia Kaplan really want you to fall in love with indoor gardening and growing as much as they do. Leaf Supply profiles and provides comprehensive (but easy to follow) care instructions for 100 houseplants – including tropical plants, palms, hanging plants, succulents, cacti, and more unusual varieties such as airplants and carnivorous plants – ensuring you learn and grow as your plant grows.
But much more than a plant guide, Leaf Supply also gives interior styling advice on choosing the rights pots for your plants – both aesthetically and practically – as well as best utilising your space, and making the most of your indoor greenery, as well as advice on pet-friendly (as well as harmful) plants for your home. The book also profiles 10 tastemakers from creative fields who have integrated indoor greenery into their homes and workplaces – to give the reader a real insight into how plants can be used in everyday life.
This is a comprehensive guide for any budding greenthumb interested in greening their apartment or inside their home
