This hinterland house contains two main interconnected, steel framed volumes for living and sleeping, perched high on the site to take in broad views of the Pacific coastline with the forested hinterland in the foreground.

Bark_Tinbeerwah_06Taking some cues in architectural language from the architects' own studio, the house explores ‘Case Study’ ideas of expressing a legibility of construction, with simple clean spaces contained by a series of steel portal frames and glazing, in contrast with economic modules of lightweight sheet and hardwood chamferboard cladding. The house explores lightness, filtering natural breezes, layers of transparency and integrating indoor / outdoor spaces within dynamic patterns of light and shadow, being a simple frame to enable a contemporary lifestyle.Bark_Tinbeerwah_10Bark_Tinbeerwah_08
