Upper Esk (2015) > Design + Construct
Remotely located in Tasmania’s east, this tourist retreat has been designed as a luxurious studio cabin to accommodate just one couple at any given time.
Overwhelmed by the location, the design inspiration for this retreat was taken from the large native mushrooms that seem to explode from the surrounding expanse of land. In response to the nature of the river to flood, this design ‘mounds’ up above the group as if exploding like a mushroom.
Maximising northern solar gain and the provision for a wood fire will produce a warm and comfortable ‘home-away-from-home’ for visitors in the middle of some of Tasmania’s best bushland.
