Buildings & Living Things


Garden House
Mauro Baracco & Louise Wright with Rory Gardiner

This holiday house 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.
