Un-built: Peninsula House

March 15, 2010

A courtyard house inspired by the farmhouse typology, the Peninsula House features a dramatic interior with panoramic views out to the landscape.

Positioned on a previously cleared site, with views towards Tasman Island and the Southern Ocean beyond, this project takes the farmhouse typology and transforms it into a hybrid courtyard house.

Visitors enter the house through a covered threshold, experiencing views into the tree-filled courtyard and the sea beyond. They then venture into the main living space, where the full panorama unfolds. Three gable roof extrusions define the functions within. Each gable has a specific relationship to the courtyard and specific views to the surroundings. The extruded form extends away from the building envelope, providing covered outdoor living spaces.

*Team* Designers: Thomas Bailey, Nathan Crump, Aaron Roberts, James Wilson
