‘BIG ROCK JETTY’ by Edward Szewczyk & Associates Architects

The Australian architectural practice Edward Szewczyk & Associates realised this weekend home two hours drive from Sydney. A beautiful detail is the jetty/gazebo, a small structure located at the edge between the dam and forest. The jetty is suspended above the water and the gazebo is suspended toward the trees. It is larger and caters to more social activity such as swimming, fishing and picnics at sunset. The smaller gazebo is quieter: a place of reflection, watching the birds and reading a book. No part of the deck touches the water or forest emphasising respect to those natural elements. The form is essentially made of three horizontal planes: the surface of water, deck and roof.
