Fisheries Holiday House

At the edge of Freycinet National Park, between the Monolithic Granite of the Coles Bay Hazards and the oldest Oyster Bay pines known to the Tasmanian East Coast, sits this humble holiday home.  Designed to disappear into the landscape, the use of black becomes a careful choice that disseminates appropriateness to the environment and its disappearing potential.  The simple ā€˜Lā€™ shaped building provides a modest two-bedroom, bathroom and a walk-through entry/deck offset against a living area space.  The rudimentary geometry of the home is nestled into the landscape with external rammed earth walls, solidifying its existence in an attempt to insert a man-made object into a naturally shaded landscape minimising its visual physical impact.
