Tuross Head


Tuross Head

The project is a coastal escape for its Canberra based owners, and has been conceived of as a cave. A simple organic space, free flowing in form as if the result of erosion.

Constructed in off-form concrete and raw black steel, the house will provide 85sqm of accommodation on a waterfront block overlooking the Tuross River.

The roof of the building will be a column free concrete slab, with landscape planted over it. The cave house will be hidden by this landscape, creating a very private oasis. Dramatic skylights continue the organic geometry and bring daylight into the kitchen and bathroom areas.
