A coastal retreat for family and guests. A durable, tectonic structure enables subdued spaces that bring focus to the expansive seascape location. Industrial components are utilised to create an architecture of tactility and resilience. A carefully managed excavation tucks the building gently into the contour, providing shelter from Tasmania’s strong winds within a sun filled courtyard. The gallery of landscape beyond dominates the interior, allowing confident, natural finishes to create a restful quality to the experience.
