Located within the Deep Creek Conservation Park, designed by Max Pritchard Architects, these three cabins provide self-contained accommodation for visitors seeking a relaxing natural environment for sight seeing, bush walking, fishing and bird watching.
In contrast to the more usual approach of bush cabins as an enclosed refuge, the units are designed to open up to the beautiful natural bush setting, utilizing large sliding glass doors and high windows. A traditional element, a large stone fireplace, becomes the night-time focus of the living room.
Environmental considerations were important. The light delicate structures minimize intrusion into the fragile setting. North facing windows allow low winter sun to provide heating, supplemented by the wood heater, while summer cooling is aided by cross ventilation and ceiling fans.
The cabins are self sufficient in water and hot water is provided by roof mounted solar water units.
