A selection of Animated GIF’s that show how the shack opens up and then shuts down.
Timelapse of opening up the house.
Here Ryan, DJ and I opened up the shack, it took less than 6 minutes.
Here are the tents that we use at Wonga. There are three sleeping tents one pagoda tent and a beach tent for the girls.
SWISS SLEEPING TENTS
The ‘swiss’ sleeping tents are huge, about twice as big as the whole house. They have a large central space that can be divided by a curtain down the centre. There is also a small room at the rear, about 4m x 1.5m which can be used as WIR or if installed an ensuite. There is also a covered verandah area at the front.
The tents are made with treated white canvas, they have an internal dyed cotton lining, inside the main room the walls and ceiling also has a pattern is printed, embedded with embroidered mirrors
The Pagoda tent is about 3m square it has light cotton panels and tassels and an embroidered inner lining. It’ll be used for shading a yoga space or a outside dining table.
The beach tent is for the girls, its small and easy to assemble. It’s made of two pieces the roof and the walls. It’s not supposed to be weather proof but it was still dry inside after some pretty heavy downpours and and some strong winds.
This competition entry focussed on forging a new coastline for an Adelaide suburban beach, to bring built form in closer proximity to the beach
in order to create greater potential for public activity and commerce to co-exist, and create a sense of enclosure and shade much needed in this
unusually sparce normality, with the intent of breaking the monotonous straight lined beach typology of suburban Adelaide.
The jetty, once a thriving hub of activity, a pool and a new public building, in addition the existing city blocks provide the figure for which the
landscape reacts against.
The transformation of a under-utilised storage shed into a functional greenhouse. The form of the old shed was kept as a nod to it’s previous form. Two walls and the roof were removed. One wall was kept, for heritage concerns and to create a shaded thermal mass to equalise the temperature over time.
A 2 story addition to a bungalow in Camberwell, Melbourne. The new addition is connected to the existing house via a new stair, strategically placed to re-address the carport as the dominant entrance, rather than the street entrance. The exterior is in a contemporary ship-lap weatherboard, providing comment but honesty to the existing weather-board Bungalow. Features a new “wrap” kitchen, with a similar design vocabulary to the exterior. Laundry facilities are re-located to the lower floor, allowing for a new entrance.
