Baracco+Wright Architects’ experimental weekend home contributes to the regeneration of the site’s ecosystem.

This holiday house placed in a clearing near Western Port Bay, Australia is conceived as just a little more than a tent: a deck and raised platform are covered by a transparent 'shed', the interior perimeter 'veranda' is garden space. The soil and natural ground line are maintained and carried through. A low lying site with terrestrial orchids and lillies, flood waters seasonally move through the site unimpeded. Similarly the indigenous vegetation has begun to grow inside.

"The form of the shed enclosure, as dematerialized and undressed as possible, is intended less as a reference toward economy or utility, although it does do that, than as a framework to be colonized by vegetation over time, both inside and out."
