Open and honest

“A humble, single level living pavilion on the street side draws on the simplicity of surrounding beach houses, many of which were owner built over the years. Connection to the garden and landscape was imperative to the design. Kangaroos literally inhabit the house. The structural system is exposed and honest. Operable screens allow for the control of privacy and when the whole house is opened up it almost disappears, evoking the social mood of camping.”

Great house. Looks too clean and orderly for kangaroos to literally be living in it.

Jane C says:

Looks like the bushfires came very close last summer !
They were lucky the house is still standing.
