From the Architect: Colo Crossings is a new dwelling for retreat, located 100 kilometers northwest of Sydney’s CBD, and sitting atop a steeply sloping hill to the river. The job is conceived as a a few-dimensional weave of landscape and making, making it possible for motion all through in equally the approach and section. A plunge pool sits at the heart of the building and is the central void to which the application and circulation are anchored. The residence is designed of transport container models, with three bedrooms, two loos and an open system kitchen, dwelling, eating space. The spaces are organized to allow for for a looping circulation sample, enabling occupants to shift cyclically by means of the household appropriately to the shifting time of the working day and temperature problems. From the entry promenade, the house is a periphery for viewing the landscape. One particular can see proper via the house at its centre like a telescope, foregrounding the immediacy of the landscape’s presence.”
