A Typology of Australian Domestic Architecture is the documentation of typical domestic architecture in Australia. It celebrates the Aussie home as both a means of self-expression and also as a monument to the period of  its design and construction.

Focusing on a diverse range of coastal architecture photographed throughout Australia, all images in this second volume have been photographed with a medium format film camera 2017-22. Each image has an accompanying text intended to give some limited background on the features and styles as well as any modifications or additions undertaken.
