Tasmania an island at the most southern point of Australian is the location of our practice Dock4. The house on Bonnet hill is a modest building of 100 sqm on a large open rural site. It is a simple two storey, cement clad box, that sits deep on a north facing bank. The building is permeable from three sides, transferring from inside to outside with ease.
Materials are limited and raw and in many cases unfinished, low cost materials cover the larger areas while higher quality materials define the openings.
