This new holiday house is set within a copse of mature spotted gums at the end of the Wagstaffe peninsular on the Central Coast. The house takes reference from the humble holiday shack spotted throughtout the area and proposes a simple building form set under an offset low slung hipped roof. Accommodation includes the principal house on the upper level and an attached secondary dwelling on the lower level, which can be seperately rented, and both which can enjoy north easterly views to Brisbane Water.
A series of sculptural skylights are incorporated into the roof to draw filtered light through the canopy into the volumous living spaces and act to crown the shack akin to the crest of the local cockatoos.
Construction commenced on site June 2012.
