we explore breaking down the building program, not only between public and private areas, but between individual sleeping + bathing areas for each of the family members or groups.
by breaking down the program, the built form slips between the existing tea tree, enabling the forms to become contained by the surrounding landscape.

the separation of forms allows the program to be manipulated to suit the existing landscape, as well as enabling the program to be experienced as one moves through the building. the separation of each form is experienced both internally and externally, with the building punctured on all four sides to express each junction. these punctures are used to provide strips of light and connection to the landscape to what are otherwise subdued private areas.
