The Coleman Residence explores the illusion of the home as a holiday retreat, exploiting the tapering boundaries
with a vanishing point that meets in the neighbouring property. The vanishing point is denied visibility by a wall
tthat exaggerates the illusion with an installation by the artist Jurek Wybraniec. Like a wedge of Camembert cheese,
the tactile and delicious materials are reserved for the interior spaces. Large, anonymous, external white walls act
as powerful barriers, hiding the internal richness of the private world. All space is organised as a series of wedges
connecting to the illusory vanishing point. Driving through the middle of the residence is a wedge of recycled jarrah,
a deck that starts at the street boundary and ends 1.5 metres from the rear. This wedge connects the inside and out, forming
spaces of ambiguity and a resonating curved court to bring the exterior deep into the interior. iredalepedersenhook.com.

Located in the Seascapes development in Halls Head, this
two-storey, rammed-limestone home is on the north-west
end of its lot with a garage and walled courtyard positioned
to the street. The street elevation is modest and reserved,
with only the hint of the garage roof seen behind a high
wall. It 's designed to capitalise on cross-ventilation, but
retain privacy. The north-west side is more open, featuring
extensive glazing and a generously sized balcony, so views
of the Indian Ocean are maximised. The main living area is
located on the first floor, connected to the three bedrooms
on the ground floor via a steel-framed, rope balustrade
staircase. The living area can be split in two thanks to a
large sliding screen to provide a guest bedroom or a more
secluded study area. optimumresourcearchitects.com.au.
