Marion Bay House - 1+2 Architecture
This small dwelling is designed to take its place in a vast landscape - a lightweight timber structure inspired by the working buildings of the local, rural environment. The house is conceived as a folded ribbon of timber which emerges from its site, then folds back on itself to form an enclosure in a manner which both 'grounds' the building and amplifies its presence in the broader landscape. Openings in the ribbon are formed for access and view. A single opening, accessed by an inclined 'sheep chute' signifies and creates the entry. To the east and north, a continuous articulated strip of windows and doors frame views, moderate sun penetration and provide access to the northerly semi-enclosed deck.
