clarence point residence
project: Clarence Point Residence
location: Clarence Point, Tasmania
description: The residence is situated on a northeast sloping site at the edge of the Tamar River near the mouth to Bass Straight. Essentially a central living pavilion flanked by sleeping pavilions on either side, the residence has intricately sequenced spaces, which draw the interior out and into the landscape. The scheme is programmatically minimal, modest in built internal area, yet generous in landscape extension and spatial volume.
Careful consideration has been given to natural ventilation, a highly performing thermal skin, including double-glazing throughout, and minimal southern and western window openings. Steel structural elements are reduced to a minimum while engineered timber provides efficient long span structural solutions.
