Itis a holiday house for extended family and sits on a west facing bush clad hillside Apple Bay.

We intended to create a delicate platform amongst trees for life to unfold. The house is in two parts, each with a fine roof that follows the slope of the land. The upstairs living areas are configured as a large elongated space with decks at each end to enjoy both the morning and afternoon sun and with retreat and service spaces serving these. Downstairs bedrooms float amongst the trees with windows opening across the tree tops. The gap and junction between the two building parts is a continuation of the path up from the boat house.
