Wallaby Lane House by Robinson Architects

Robinson Architects recently completed the Wallaby Lane house and studio on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia.








Description from the architects

Wallaby Lane house and studio are located at Tinbeerwah on the Sunshine Coast, Australia.. The dwellings were designed for a family relocating from Sydney with construction finalised late 2013.

The site, a long slither in shape, is just over 2 hectares. Established bushland in the centre of the property separates the two buildings.

The house sits high on the site and is linear in plan to follow the natural contour. Orientated to the north, large eaves and a fly-over roof shade the building. Cross ventilation, natural daylighting and beautiful views to Cooroy Mountain are maximised.

The house plan is spacious yet compact. No space is wasted. A suspended polished concrete floor throughout the living areas provides the thermal mass to the building. Low e glass and large overhangs provide a very comfortable internal climate.

The property is not serviced by town water or sewerage. An onsite waste water treatment system looks after both buildings and rain water is harvested.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
