Projects: Coochiemudlo Is. House

A new house to go on a small, wonderful, untouched site mainly covered with native cypress trees on an island in Moreton Bay, Queensland. The design considered the idea of ‘total site’ usage through the use of landscape elements that echoed the construction of the house. The carport doubles as a pottery studio with a tent sleepout over – island living at its best! All the existing trees were to be retained.

Floor Areas: internal: 113 m2; external: 24.2 m2; garage/studio: 12.0 m2.

Status: unbuilt (2010).
