Australian practice Room 11 have designed the Lookout House in Port Arthur, Tasmania. The house is located on a previously cleared site with views towards Tasman Island and the Southern Ocean. From the architects, “Visitors enter through a covered threshold, experiencing views into the treed courtyard and the sea beyond, before venturing into the main living space where the full panorama unfolds. Three gable roof extrusions define particular functions within each with particular relationships to the courtyard and specific views to the surrounds. The extruded form pushes beyond the building envelope providing covered outdoor living spaces.”
