This project is a contemporary reinterpretation of the robust/rudimentary fibro Australian beach houses of the 50's and 60's. These houses embodied an ethos of minimum amenity and basic construction.
This contemporary version honours this tradition with vibrant colours and a developed indoor/outdoor feel.
The shack functions as two, linked pavilions. The main pavilion includes the kitchen/dining/lounge, a bathroom/laundry and one bedroom. The second pavilion houses two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The shack allows a couple on holiday to use the building without needing to access the second pavilion, while the second pavilion stands at the ready should an additional party or two arrive.
