The simple cement-sheet form of the Mossy Point House references the smooth, silvery bark of towering Spotted Gum trees that surround the house, while echoing the tiny ‘fibro’ shack that was the original occupant of the site. The interior volumes are lined with a singular palette of plywood and Spotted Gum timber flooring, allowing the carefully defined volumes to shape and orchestrate the natural daylight and the connection to the native landscape and waterways of the surrounding site.
A void within the centre of the roofline creates a sheltered outdoor dining space, open to both the sky and the horizon, while internally shaping a central fulcrum point within the home and defining its entrance. This void within the heart of the home clearly divides the internal program between the social and private.
