Here in Australia, the inside/outside design element in residential dwellings is often essential, as our warm climate allows us to embrace the fact that open-air spaces work best. Interiors are merging with exteriors creating hybrid spaces that enable us to awaken our senses. Interior design meets landscape architecture in these transitional spaces that fuse the indoor and outdoor spaces. It is this in-between state, connecting both spaces that requires the interior designer’s sensitive treatment in the blurring of the boundaries between the two.
The TaskThe Cana Community Charity operates an education platform from a farm building in Penrith NSW. The cottage is used to bring purpose back into the lives of youth and middle aged men and women who are or have been homeless, fighting addictions, or come from other unfortunate circumstances. The current building is lacking space for breakout areas, and students have the ability to utilise and maximise unused areas beyond the building’s current footprint.
The competition is underway and the judging for the finalists will take place on September 1, 2015. The final judgment will be made on September 15.
