Regional Architecture Awards 

The 2021 Australian Institute of Architects’ Regional Architecture Awards 2021 saw Tim Ditchfield Architects win The Gabriel Poole Award for Building of the Year, Sunshine Coast.

The Noosa property, Las Palmas, was inspired by a journey to Palm Springs and the spirit of mid-century modernism, to take full advantage of the beautiful location and natural surroundings. The design is modernist, with strongly pronounced horizontal planes, simple forms and honest materiality including a robust and timeless palette of in-situ concrete walls and roofs, minimalistic balustrading, feature breeze blocks, and honed concrete steps and terracing. 

The homeowners said the design complemented their love of water, fresh air and natural light. “Our house frames our views and highlights an ever-changing canvas around us. It’s both functional and fictional.”
