From the Architect: Colo Crossings is a new dwelling for retreat, located 100 kilometers northwest of Sydney’s CBD, and sitting down atop a steeply sloping hill to the river. The undertaking is conceived as a 3-dimensional weave of landscape and building, allowing movement through in the two the strategy and segment. A plunge pool sits at the heart of the making and is the central void to which the software and circulation are anchored. The property is produced of delivery container models, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an open up approach kitchen area, residing, dining place. The areas are arranged to let for a looping circulation pattern, enabling occupants to transfer cyclically by way of the household appropriately to the switching time of the day and climate problems. From the entry promenade, the household is a periphery for viewing the landscape. Just one can see correct via the residence at its center like a telescope, foregrounding the immediacy of the landscape’s existence.”
