Cape Tribulation House

This off-the-grid home is close to the beach in the Daintree Rainforest — an ancient ecosystem deserving of a thoughtful approach to its site. The home is located in a natural clearing, to avoid any mature tree removal. The house is naturally ventilated, assisted by ceiling fans. All appliances and fixtures are energy efficient. A path organises choreographs a journey from the road, through the dense rainforest vegetation and down to the beach. Along the path, a continuous white rope playfully leads the way through the landscape. Relaxed pavilions accommodate multiple sleeping arrangements, with living spaces serving as makeshift campsites, and couple rooms that transform into bunk rooms. The design couples qualities of the rainforest, with the attributes of holiday life at the beach.
