Designed as shared accommodation for art students, this building is arranged as a series of introverted sleeping chambers accessed from large open verandahs and common facilities.

The design concentrates on questions of climate, topography, and material detailing in a way redolent of some Asian architectures. The fabric draws on a small palette of durable self finishing materials such as copper, fibre cement, and red ironbark. Normally manufactured items were all hand made on site.
