Tree View House was formerly a fairly plain bungalow at the end of a cul-de-sac, however, following a series of thoughtful interventions Neil Dusheiko Architects have imbued the home with references to Delhi and California where the family have previously lived. The additional space helps the home to flexibly respond to the family’s changing needs – while also allowing the most social spaces to merge seamlessly with the rich landscape.

Foamcrest Apartments is a project designed by Richard Cole Architecture. On a difficult triangular site in the coastal suburb of Newport on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Foamcrest Apartments is a form generated from the unique site. A composition of glazed bricks, off form concrete and sandstone, materials selected for their durability and appropriateness for the ocean side location, the seven apartments are 100% adaptable and differentiated by unique plans. With two prominent street fronts and a central lobby that is open to the sky, the design carefully balances solar access, privacy and outlook. The form emphasises a low profiled horizontality that is generally well below the height limit. The character of the building provides a fresh and contemporary contribution to the locality.
