This project is a contemporary reinterpretation of the robust/rudimentary fibro Australian beach houses of the 50’s and 60’s. These houses, embodied an ethos of minimum amenity and basic construction. This contemporary version honors this tradition with; vibrant colours, a nod to the Case study projects of Koenig and Eames and a developed indoor/outdoor feel. The shack functions as two linked pavilions. The main pavilion includes the kitchen/dining/lounge, a bathroom / laundry and one bedroom. The second pavilion houses two bedrooms and a bathroom. The two pavilion model, the shack allows a couple on holiday to use the building without needing to access the second pavilion, while the second pavilion stands at the ready should an additional party or two arrive.
