DIAMOND BEACH 101 thumbnail

Adventures in Oz

Having admired a project by Shane Blue of Bourne + Blue Architecture in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia, James and Sue O’Sullivan asked the architect to help them create a beachside family compound in Diamond Beach, about a two-hour drive from their main house. Completed this year, the resulting structure, which comprises four main components wrapped around a central courtyard, easily accommodates the couple and their five children, ranging in age from 23 to 16, as well as extended family and friends. To keep maintenance costs down and to reduce the sizeable home’s carbon footprint, Blue used composite plywood and plantation pine throughout, as well as low-VOC paint, low-e glazing and LED lighting. He installed photovoltaic panels, a hot-water recirculating pump and two large corrugated steel bins that store 5,000 gallons of rainwater just outside the building. When the O’Sullivans aren’t using the house, which was completed in spring, they allow it to be used as a vacation rental.

Perfect Pair of 2011 Calendars

I just tore the November page off my 365 Typography Calendar and though I've got all of December until I'll need a new one, I thought I'd point out a pair of excellent 2011 calendars. As one of two members of the Dwell creative team without a smart phone, I'm still very much in the habit of writing my appointments down. And nothing suits me better than seeing a massive wall calendar filled up with trips, meetings, and dinners. Here are two I'd be happy to tack up, and considering that I'm moving into a bigger apartment later this month, I just might.
