The classic architecture of Australian homes

The tin roofs. The fly screen doors. The wrap-around verandahs. It’s all typically Aussie and it’s all captured in Robert Götzfried’s series, Australian Homes. Originally from Munich, Götzfried is a photographer and designer who mostly works on architectural projects and has created an extensive portfolio through the years by capturing the beauty of what others may view as ugly or dilapidated or even useless.

His keen eye as a photographer allows us to take a look at what Australian culture is through the classic architecture of country homes. There’s nothing like a clean, modern home, but looking at these images, there’s really nothing like a worn out Aussie home with a picket fence and a lounge on the verandah!
