Our brief was to create a robust home for a growing family using simple forms and rustic materials with an emphasis on buildability.

The simple detailing and forms expand on the unpretentious farmhouse vernacular and adapt the arrangement to create a series of flexible spaces for living. The application of this uncomplicated construction typology was a two-fold approach, driven initially to engage with the context in which it sits but also facilitating a pragmatic cost-effective solution to allow the carpenter/joiner client to take ownership of much of the fabrication himself.

Open, spacious and lineally uncluttered, this low cost, energy efficient home maximises visual connection with the landscape, yet provides ample protection from the elements.

The building runs east–west, to maximise passive solar performance, and combat the challenges surrounding a site where the predominant views are to the south!

As the surrounding landscaping, decks and planting progress over the coming years, we look forward to seeing this home comfortably settle into its surroundings.

Dunalley House by Stuart Tanner Architects

Area: 264 m2

There is a lightness of touch in the careful orientation and pared back minimalism of this house on the Tasman Peninsular, which replaces a shack lost in the devastating 2013 Dunalley bushfires. Its intimate spaces are solid and protecting, yet open through expansive glazing to connect with the landscape and the vista across the bay. Budget, logistics and a high “Bushfire Attack Level” led to modular construction using prefabricated steel and precast concrete components. There are exquisite details where it counts, such as the LED and steel edge to the concrete blade, which defines the approach to the front entry.

PROJECT SUMMARY

Dunalley House on the Tasman Peninsular is a project for a young family recovering from the dramatic loss of their family holiday retreat during the devastating 2013 Dunalley bushfire. The 10ha property was left scorched and barren. The original holiday home destroyed while the family watched from the foreshore below. The client brief was for a primarily concrete building: solid and protective yet connecting with the expansive outlook across Dunalley Bay. The new building was located proximate to the water. A moderate budget and tight timeframe encouraged a semi-modular approach to construction of pre-fabricated steel and precast concrete panels. A high “bushfire attack level” rating influenced material choice. Low profile, the building stretches across the site, in response to the expansive milieu. Planning is elementary: a bunker for sleeping, and a pavilion for living, separated by a long deck that serves as both entry and axis to the bay beyond. The quiet interior allows for contemplation of changing light and weather. The deck extends on the ocean side to a fire dish, as a beacon on the bluff, a place to congregate and perhaps, a symbol of the force that transformed the property.

This off-grid cabin is an escape from the high stress of our client’s busy work life.  Born in Taiwan, she spent her childhood in traditional Japanese houses (built during occupation).  Out of this grew a love for highly crafted minimalist design.  Our brief was to capture that and design a building as a piece of furniture with everything she needs built in.  The only furniture allowed was a low table and mattress on the sleeping loft.

With long views to the south and tall trees to the north, the cabin opens onto an east and west deck, capturing morning and afternoon sun while affording views to the south.  A high roof allowed solar panels and a skylight to catch sun from over the trees.

Sandy Bay House by Taylor and Hinds Architects

Location: Tasmania, Australia

Year: 2017


Architects: Taylor and Hinds Architects
Builder: 2H Pty Ltd.
Engineer: JSA Consulting Engineers
Landscape: Playstreet Urban Design

This project seeks to understand the ways in which a house can act to mediate and orchestrate an encounter with a powerful view.

Recalling earlier experiences of landscapes, and particularly sea-cliffs in southern Tasmania, we have proposed a kind of ‘landscape interior’ that holds the view between two mezzanine ‘cliffs’. This strategy results in an increased wall length internally, thereby also increasing the potential for engagement with more discrete oblique views over the Derwent River and wider cityscape.

Cross House by Taylor and Hinds Architects

Location: Franklin, Tasmania, Australia

AWARDS

2017 AIA Esmond Dorney Award for Residential Architecture – Houses (New)

The approach to the design of this house revolves around its small scale. Situated on a dramatic site, overlooking Franklin and the Huon River, the project takes in a 270 degree outlook across southern Tasmania, while affording privacy from an existing house – which serves as the main residence on the property. The plan geometry hinges from the contour, creating a new living platform – the eastern edge of which aligns with the axis of Grey Mountain. The northern edge of the house orients back towards the midday sun and terrain, creating a private outdoor terrace to the north.

Rooms are huddled about a centripetal plan, reducing circulation space, while maximising outlook. This strategy offers a sense of an expansive interior in a tight plan. This is further emphasised by the contrast between the dark interior palette of the house, which highlights the play of sunlight upon the landscape.

River’s Edge House by Stuart Tanner Architects

River’s Edge House is a home for a young family returning to Tasmania. Through careful planning, the home displays a sequence of intimate spaces, which gradually open to the river below. The client sought a practical incorporation of family needs, without the home feeling large.
The building slides into the site, promoting a sense of security and privacy. The spaces feel authentic, warm and durable. This was important for a family returning from working overseas, which wished to create a place that readily felt like home.
The house is relatively mute from the street, and reveals itself upon entry. Interior space links outward via placed openings, allowing for orientation and connection. Spaces around the building provide options for entertainment, play, or watching the moonrise over the river. Exterior and interior fireplaces promote relaxed, open living and take cues from family shack holidays.
