West End Beach House – Flinder Island, Bass Straight

Project Brief

West End Beach – Ecoshelta: This consists of five t.pods on an exposed ocean front site in Bass Straight and has separated single pod pavilions arranged along the contour in a curved plan and joined by a curved timber hallway. This project was prefabricated in Sydney some 15 years ago, flat packed with fitouts and shipped to a remote, unserviced site by sea containers. The integrated carport roof was designed to connect the carefully placed containers and form a shelter for site establishment.

The severe exposure to anti-cyclonic winds and coastal spray demonstrates the alloy frame’s capabilities and durability in extreme locations.
