Instead of demolishing the existing beach shack, the Dorman House adds a vertical extension to create undisrupted views of the ocean. The original home remains mostly untouched, with the exception of a new bathroom and laundry in the former kitchen. A spiral staircase leads to the new addition above, housing a kitchen, dining and living room. Internally, the timber box structure is completely lined with Silvertop Ash that not only adds coastal character, but also responds to the area's seasonal changes and time of the day. North-facing full height windows break up the timber planks to brighten the space, while framing in views of the Victoria coast.

Star Wars has had a presence in Disney's parks since the opening of Star Tours at Disneyland in 1987, but nothing compares to what's coming. Simultaneously under construction at both Disneyland in Anaheim and Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida, Star Wars Land is an immersive experience that will take you on a journey to the galaxy far, far away. Highlights of the 14-acre area include an all-new ride that will let you pilot the Millennium Falcon, and a second attraction that puts you in the center of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance — with a recreation of the Cantina on-site for post-ride refreshments. While it's a little too early to make concrete travel plans, you can count on your journey embarking sometime in 2019.
