Small Commercial Project
Winner: AJR Construct
An 'off-the-grid', self-sufficient and secluded project in a remote and challenging site, totally concealed by the surrounding native vegetation. The use of charred timber externally, further blends the structures into the landscape, making them almost invisible. The half-dome construction details of the main social area and sleeping compartments have been painstakingly executed by artisans. The remote site required that all materials and components be transported by helicopter to a nearby staging area and then carried to site by hand, over sand dunes and up a very narrow bush track. Furthermore, the project was completed with absolutely no impact to the fauna, flora and surrounding landscape. This project, with its innovative architecture and outstanding workmanship, can only be described as awe-inspiring.
