⠀
REGIONAL JURY CITATION⠀
The remarkable Mill Hill Retreat is an exciting and sophisticated home for a young family on a magical site. It exudes the care and rapport its architect, client and builder invested together in its shaping. 
Poised carefully on the edge between a cultivated ridge and the vastness of a wild hinterland valley, this sophisticated hinterland house inspires discovery of an intimate sense of place through mapping and topographical shaping of its site.

Landscape has been curated sensitively and is embraced beautifully between contrasted pavilions, framing verdant views, as a well-choreographed sequence of crafted terraces. An evolving and expanding experience of interior and exterior spaces, celebrate the primacy of nature, with space and volume varied through rich and balanced contrast, with an authentic and sophisticated sense of permanence, comfort and delight.

Sea Deck | @tim_ditchfield_architects | Residential Architecture - Houses (New) | 
Photographer: @scottburrowsphotographer ⠀⠀ REGIONAL JURY CITATION⠀
Infusing the quintessential delights of living on the Sunshine Coast with exemplary ease, Sea Deck crafts a skilful approach to design for climate and place, and the challenging salty conditions of coastal living.

Adeptly resolved through mastery of the section, a comprehensive program is achieved with authentic ease and a generosity of space, landscape edges and view framing to great advantage.

Carefully stepping with the site’s natural topography, distinct zones connect with an open, screened stair and the rich warm palette of natural timbers. As a partnership of skill and trust between architect and client, this exceptional family home celebrates the site and feels inextricably of its coastal place.

#architecturephotos SUNSHINE COAST OPEN HOUSE 2020 WEEKEND CANCELLED
During this challenging and uncertain time, the SCOH team has made the difficult decision to cancel its Open House Weekend in October.
SCOH was founded to celebrate the Sunshine Coast’s unique buildings, spaces and treasures, and to demonstrate how thoughtful and quality design can immeasurably enrich our day-to-day lives. While we can’t open doors to buildings in the foreseeable future, we are exploring possible ways we can continue to champion exceptional architecture and place-making, both creatively and virtually.
It is impossible to know exactly how civic life will change in the coming months, but when the day comes that large events can occur and we can gather together again, the Sunshine Coast Open House team will be ready with an ambitious program which unlocks a surprising array of buildings and celebrates the Sunshine Coast we all know and love.
Thank you to all our visitors, friends, volunteers, sponsors and collaborators for your ongoing support....please stay safe and healthy.
