From The Architects

The Marysville House substitutes a three-bedroom holiday house, which was devastated in the Black Saturday Fires of 2009.  The home strived to meet the recreational requirements of a family of four. For us, it was an exercise in control.

In our initial designs, we imagined a large, double story home with an expansive communal dining/living space, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a detached studio. After long, concentrated planning, it was clear that a large, complex home was not appropriate for offering short to medium term holiday accommodation.

From The Architects

We trimmed the design to an enlarged studio. The dwelling now contains one communal room, utilities and a mezzanine (a sleeping platform). The design is inspired by the idea of a lodge that you might discover in a remote or mountainous region. The compact structure of the building will minimise wastage and labour during construction and increase thermal performance over lifetime. It looks effortless in context and links with its environment with simplicity and ease.
