‘the small footprint explores the boundaries of living small and challenges conventional notions of what is actually necessary in our lives’, explain the architects.

 

connected to the electrical grid, the building is configured to be environmentally responsive with rainwater harvested for reuse. internally, the single storey layout comprises living and dining space at one end of the property, with sleeping accommodation found at the rear. an adjoining sheltered area of decking provides sweeping views of the coastal landscape.
