I set out to design and build a light breezy NE facing art studio with a garage and bathroom below. The location was a rainforest setting with an ocean glimpse, located at Sunshine Beach in Noosa. The bathroom under the tank stand was influenced by practical rural structures I had seen growing up in Queensland. The external stud also has nostalgic links to earlier Queensland domestic structures. Extensive use of hardwood, glass, corrugated iron and sand stone created a timeless contemporary environmentally aware structure.
