"The Moko House was created to embody the clients love of the beach. The rural site slopes south to north toward a creek located off the property; with a treed gully to the east. Rather than creating a flat area to build upon, the dwelling is both nestled into the existing topography and floating above it, wrapping around the sites contours and opening to natural ground level at various access points. The clients desired a house which felt warm and sheltered in winter, while also open and light filled through summer. This was achieved via a combination of techniques including the placement of the hearth and open fire of the Living and Kitchen zone nestled into the tapering plywood and timber floor to ceiling volume. Opposite, eaves stretch out in an open gesture to the rural landscape beyond."
