Sustainable Treehouse Architecture for a Contemporary Coastal Home

Sustainable Treehouse Architecture for a Contemporary Coastal Home | Bridget Jackson | Scoop.it

This house is integrated with nature, sustainably designed and features a pared back palette infused with just the right amount of contrast.


Originally designed by Bark Design, the architects adopted principles of authenticity, economy, durability and simplicity into the design. A change in ownership gave the opportunity to further explore and refine the dwelling for its new occupants.

In the words of the architects, "The basic ‘pavilion’ plan was sketched out in the sand during an early site visit. A simple diagram of two timber pavilions placed either side of a 50 year old Morton Bay Ash ensures that the tree takes centre stage to the scale, proportions and life of the house around it. Celebrating its natural, coastal setting, the house provides its occupants with an inextricable link to the landscape. Exploring ideas of lightness, layers of transparency and integrating indoor/outdoor living within dynamic patterns of light and shadow, the Marcus Beach house is a simple frame to enable a contemporary coastal lifestyle to unfold within a very special landscape.

‘The Bridge’ Adapts a Scandinavian TV Crime Series

‘The Bridge’ Adapts a Scandinavian TV Crime Series | Bridget Jackson | Scoop.it
“The Bridge,” a new series on FX, is an adaptation of a sinister, psychologically dense Scandinavian crime series, but not as interesting.
