I am a poet, writer, artist, activist, designer. I am transfixed by the smell of earth, sounds of lapping water and the way light and shadows move. My design ranges in scale from shoes to neighborhoods, relying always on the kinesthetic human experience of place, space, objects. My writing transcends scale too. My love of dirt, texture, materiality and building stem from the creation of childhood forts, fairy villages, exploration of post industrial sites and a deep fascination with moss. I am in love with story, mythology and words.
The Bowen Mountain House located in New South Wales, designed by Sidney architecture practice CplusC Architecture. The structure seems to almost hover over the site and indoor and outdoor spaces merge seamlessly. Conceived as a simple weekender, this pavilion house grew into something a lot more substantial. Landscaping, a pool, pool house and sauna were added to the original brief, with spectacular results. The house has a steel frame that was welded on-site prior to being shot-blasted and finished with a two-part epoxy paint system. This is one of the longest lasting corrosion protection systems available today. – [CplusC Architecture]
