Designed and built for a dry-arid climate, this small structure was conceived as a light, open, transportable architecture with minimal material use or waste. The 2400×1200 ply sheets become bed, table, wall and storage. The butterfly roof collects water and catches cooling breezes. The surrounds of the structure are as much a part of it’s design as the internal space and its footings adapt to variations in terrain.
Designed in collaboration with Isabelle Duner for a University of Newcastle Design Studio
