Representing unity and protection, circles become creative design elements in these homes.

The LC4 lounge is by Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand, and Pierre Jeanneret for Cassina. Operable porthole windows on the east facade offer ventilation.
The trip from garage to first floor is through a wood-clad spiral staircase that resembles a giant slatted barrel.
Cooke clad the building in a black-stained, sustainably-grown Canadian cedar, a durable choice that ages well and requires little maintenance. The dark glazing was chosen so windows appear seamless, accentuating the form of the building.
The combination bunk bed and playhouse is another whimsical gesture the architect designed specifically for her two daughters. The spaces are organized in such a way that they can play independently or together.
The dining room is adjacent to the open-plan living area and shares the view out over the deck and garden to bushland. Throughout the house, the floorboards are made from recycled blackbutt timber.
