w WHEN LOOKING FOR PROPERTY NEAR COOGEE, Australia, Marcella Kaspar and her husband, Mark Cooper, had an advantage—she's an artist and he's a designer, so they could look beyond the obvious. "I grew up in Coogee not far from this property," says Kaspar. "We were really lucky no one else besides us seemed that interested in it. We absolutely loved it and we could see the potential." Working as a team, Kaspar and Cooper created a beautiful, unique new home based on the premise of five-star resort living. "We love the concept of the indoor and outdoor areas merging, so the house was oriented around a central courtyard with a pool," says Kaspar. "This means the house is always cool in summer, and we enjoy the wonderful play of light as reflections from the water move through the interior spaces." ABOVE: With the openness of the spaces, light is reflected back into the house. Neutral tones were used throughout to balance Kaspar's strong artworks.
