Posted by Kathryn Kutchel in In the Media, Melbourne, Our people, People, Culture & Brand, Promotions. Comments Off on ‘This Girl Can’ – Getting Women Involved!

4th April

Physical activity on a regular basis is all part of a balanced and healthy lifestyle, but recent statistics show that half of us aren’t getting enough exercise each week.

That’s where the ‘This Girl Can’ Initiative comes in!

Taylors own Tamara Reilly is getting active in the roller derby team featured in the ‘This Girl Can’ advertisement.

Posted by Kathryn Kutchel in In the Media, Melbourne, News, Planning, Urban Design. Comments Off on Good Fences make Good Neighbours, or Do They?

30th January

As residential living becomes smarter and more inclusive of situations including multi-generational living and communal space, is there growing potential in the Australian market for the possibility of shared backyards among residential dwellings? For generations, Australians have thrived off the idea of owning their ‘forever home’ with a spacious yard and picket fence to flag-post the boundaries of their property.

However, with the concept of shared backyards emerging around the world for varied purposes – sustainable shared food production in North America and Canada, multi-generational dwellings across Asia – has the time come for Australians to do away with the fence and embrace communal living in our own backyard?

Victorian news program, The Project, approached the issue last week by way of inviting Peter Vlitas of Avid Property Group to share his views on this “incredibly optimistic picture of suburban living.”
