The 2 bedroom sleepout is discretely nestled into the bush, providing both privacy for the inhabitants and a strong sense of connection to the surrounding trees and wildlife. In this way the design of the building optimises the beauty and uniqueness of its location, offering a tranquil retreat from today’s busy world.
The sleepout is a stand alone structure located at the rear of the site, it sits directly behind the original bach. It was purposely elevated to create an open living space below it.
The exterior of the building is all finished in the same material, the cladding on the roof, walls and underside of the building all wrap seamlessly in order to emphasise the idea of one pure form hovering within the site’s dense vegetation. The materials chosen reflect the desire for a hard, robust outer protective shell, contrasting a light, tranquil interior that throws emphasis on the native outlook.
