Beached House has been conceived formally as an exercise in volumetric origami; folding of spaces over and upon each other. In this way the house resembles a small village or informal site occupation that has aggregated over time.
There are a number of these folded spatial sequences within the house that allow for playful discovery and encounter as well as opportunities for varying connections between spaces.
Recessed within a thin steel frame, the fireplace (Radiante 1200) is an elegant minimalist insertion into the sculpted interior, blending in seamlessly alongside firewood boxes, bookshelves and artworks.
