Set amongst the rolling hills of Maleny the site for this residential project greatly informed its outcome. The brief for this project was for an honest and unpretentious rural retreat cabin to be inserted adjacent an established orchard and focus its outlook across a valley to distant hills. In doing so the cabin would achieve privacy by limiting openings to the access road and opening its generous glazing to the North and focused outlook.
The siting of this project was viewed as the first of multiple stages allowing the residence to grow with its occupants changing requirements over time. Its regular grid, simple materials selection and lightweight construction afforded economy of construction while achieving a sense of place.
