A family house in the noosa hinterland that connects to the ground and opens to the bush, ocean, stars and sky.
The house is designed as an operable glass pavilion that is wrapped in sliding hardwood screens, so the owners can control the light, breezes, privacy and views. In winter, they can slide open the screens to let the winter sun in. In summer they can close the screens to provide shade, while still maintaining views and breezes through the timber battens.
The long thin plan ensures the building is only one room deep to maximise, ocean views, cross ventilation and natural light. The house layout allows the family to come together to cook, eat and relax, but also the separation of more quiet spaces for reflective time. The building is kept low to the ground, so you can step directly from the house into the garden.
