Chiu House - completed

Hard to believe this house is just 40m2. The link and twist in geometry make all the difference, but so does the warmth of the timber, quality of light and the connection to landscape. Finally proof that click-raft is a good quality approach to small, economic elegant architecture. A very big thank you to our wonderful client, to the amazing team at Makers who have done a fabulous job and to Thomas Seear-Budd for the beautiful photos.

Dune House

we're really excited to be working on a new click-raft project which sits parallel to its dune landscape like a small outrigger.  The building is designed for off-site fabrication combining steel frames with click-raft cassettes wrapped in translucent polycarbonate to create a wonderful open double height living volume. The upper level contains compact bathroom and bedrooms within the click-raft substructure.
