Amenities building to support remote, luxury camping facilities in a coastal park 400km East of Melbourne. The site is perched adjacent a cliff top with fragile surrounding landscape, and exposure to the elements required thoughtful consideration of planning, materials, suitable construction methods, and provision of services.

The response is a compact, light and airy building adopting pragmatic construction techniques that sits lightly within its surrounds. The building incorporates on-site septic, rainwater harvesting, solar hot water, and durable low-maintenance materials to ensure longevity and low impact in an exposed coastal environment.
