Progress on Kenepuru Cabin continues apace. With excavation complete and profiles in place, the builder is placing the poles and getting ready to construct the floor. It won’t be long before the clients can fully appreciate their new view of the Sound.
A conceptual approach opposite to the Taylor’s Mistake House has been used at Kenepuru.
Here a tiny cabin opens out into the landscape. Materials extend past one another and overlap, building up a rich construction language.
The surrounding deck is considerably larger than the cabin itself; bearers, joists, beams and rafters carry out past the walls of the building proper. Individual elements are layered and repeated, each joist, each board given autonomy.
