The demands of living distilled to the essentials. The structure is made from recycled iron bark, sourced from an unused wharf float. It has three manual winches to lift and lower the sides of the building creating an overhang to protect against the summer sun.

The building realises many dreams for the client, the architect and the craftsmen. A collaboration relishing the process of making.
