Australia's Award-Winning Angophora House By Richard Cole Architecture (25 Photos)

by laura sweet





The stunning Angophora House by Richard Cole Architecture, a small design based studio located on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia, was just shortlisted in the Australian 2013 Houses Awards in the category of New House over 200 square meters. And I've got a thorough look at both the exterior and interior for you.






Built over an escarpment in a densely urbanised heritage conservation area in Waverton, the form of this house responds to the difficult site using the elements of cave, platform and canopy. On entering the house from the upper road, one passes through a curvaceous enclosing concrete wall with rooftop garden over.







Two platforms launch into the space of the valley, extending out from the anchoring escarpment. Insulated timber moveable walls transform the space from warm and enclosing to open and unimpeded. A sheltering timber lined roof opens to the north, falls in response to the slope of the land and captures framed views of adjacent Angophora trees. The escarpment is retained, raw and open to the rooms of the lower ground floor. A dramatic lift takes the owners to the garage on the street below.

Client: The site isn’t working right.

Me: That’s strange.

I download a page and take a look at the code.

Me: It looks like a bunch of the code is missing. Did you have anyone modify the site?

Client: No, nothing like that.

Me: Well there are entire chunks of code missing that was there yesterday.

Client: Oh yeah, that was me, some of the code seemed unnecessary. Back to the issue at hand, why isn’t the site working?

Which Way Is This Train Going?

by Vurdlak

In which direction does this #train move? From which end of the tunnel is it arriving from? It might be both! Check if you can “see” a different direction each time you look at it? If you stare long enough, you might even make the train change its course. Today’s illusion works in the same manner, our famous Spinning Girl does. After all, there is no definitive answer, since the animation loops through just a few frames. On the other hand, if you recognise the station, you just might know the true answer after all ;)

Believe It Or Not, This is a Single Photo!

by Vurdlak

If you think our recent “Single Shot Illusion” was amazing, this one will blow your mind! As you see, this colorful arrangement of household items (created by New York-based artist Bela Borsodi) appears to be a composition of four separate snapshots. Right? But once you see the photo taken from different angle (below) or do some closer inspection on your own, you will notice there is something a little off about the strategically placed lines dividing the image in 4 “separate frames”.

Believe It Or Not, This is a Single Photo!Yes, this deceptive photograph is actually made from a single shot! It was assembled from dozen of random objects, and made into a perfectly constructed optical illusion. I’m quite impressed with Borsodi’s ability to trick the viewer’s eye. The compositions was used for an album cover for the band VLP, their newest album titled Terrain.

Science is unendingly cool because it can consistently confound the expectations of researcher and layman alike. Case in point, what do you figure would happen if you had a bead chain coiled up…
