Mykonos is a Greek island, part of the Cyclades, lying between Tinos, Syros, Paros and Naxos. The island has an area of 85.5 square kilometres (33.0 sq mi) and rises to an elevation of 341 metres (1,119 feet) at its highest point. There are 10,134 inhabitants according to the 2011 census, most of whom live in the largest town, Mykonos, which lies on the west coast. The town is also known as Chora (i.e. the Town in Greek, following the common practice in Greece when the name of the island itself is the same as the name of the principal town).

House in Sydney, Australia

Located close to North Sydney, this contemporary two-storey house was designed by Luigi Rosselli Architects.

In a conservative residential pocket close to North Sydney, a workers cottage perches on top of a hill looking south-east towards striking views of Sydney Harbour. The idea behind the design was to retain the existing character of the cottage to the front – its low slung and strong horizontal lines – and place a more contemporary two storey addition at the back behind the ridge. The new upper level is fully clad with CNC routed plywood shutters, it pierces the ample roof plane to the front of the house with a wide dormer window that is curved at the corners.

Internally, the skill of Associate Architect, Sean Johnson and Interior Designer, Romaine Alwill has successfully married the old and the new: polished concrete and the existing dark timber floors, oversized glass sliding windows and the original leadlight sashes. A semi-transparent perforated black steel staircase cascades down through the centre of the house, from an openable skylight in the roof to the ground floor, allowing generous amounts of light to bathe the entrance hall.

2021 Volkswagen Atlas shrugged off fuel economy

Atlas the Titan was condemned by Zeus to carry the weight of the heavens on his shoulders. Atlas the SUV carries the weight of families in its spacious confines, but is condemned by poor fuel economy.  

Updated for 2021 with a rugged Basecamp appearance package, a bolder design, and a turbo-4 now available with all-wheel drive, the Volkswagen Atlas three-row crossover SUV seats up to seven people and plenty of gear.

2021 Mazda CX-30

Mazda’s small but robust lineup reaches higher into the premium segment this year with a new Carbon Edition and fully loaded Signature trims on select models. There are no new models for 2021, but some of the smaller Mazdas have some of the largest changes. 

The CX-3 small crossover marches on despite the CX-30, and a turbocharged engine finally returns to the 2021 Mazda 3 compact sedan and hatchback. The MX-5 Miata remains the same.
