It's just up the back of Coledale, but this place feels like its miles from anywhere, wedged between escarpment rainforest and a donkey paddock on a gravel road. However the site was overflowing with planning hazards, council codes and building regulations. A simple prismatic form of matt black metal with steel appendages, gives way to a colourful and joyous interior. The design embodies the 3.6m square and a circulation pattern that might resemble climbing a tree. All the timber walls, floors and roof were workshop-built as panels and craned into place. Built to BAL Flame Zone.
