From the Architect: Colo Crossings is a new dwelling for retreat, positioned 100 kilometers northwest of Sydney’s CBD, and sitting down atop a steeply sloping hill to the river. The undertaking is conceived as a a few-dimensional weave of landscape and creating, letting motion all over in both the strategy and area. A plunge pool sits at the coronary heart of the creating and is the central void to which the program and circulation are anchored. The property is produced of transport container units, with 3 bedrooms, two bogs and an open up plan kitchen, living, dining area. The spaces are arranged to let for a looping circulation sample, allowing occupants to go cyclically via the home accordingly to the transforming time of the day and climate situations. From the entry promenade, the dwelling is a periphery for viewing the landscape. A single can see appropriate through the property at its centre like a telescope, foregrounding the immediacy of the landscape’s existence.”
