The steep, wooded and inaccessible site chosen for building a small house for Margot and Ken Suber overlooks the Huon valley in Tasmania’s south east.
As the only approach to the proposed site for building was from above, the roof became a key element in the design of the post and beam structure. The roof acts to screen the interior from the public approach to the house while presenting the most readable facade of the building. Being remote from town services, the roof also plays an important role in collecting water for the occupants’ amenity and to fight fire.
