The Sawmill House is a regional dwelling in an industrial setting. It uses 270 large reclaimed one tonne blocks of reclaimed concrete which anchor it into the landscape and a dynamic active building envelope to regulate the internal environment. The dwelling is a hand crafted upgrade from an existing rather rustic, bohemian abode, befitting a regionally based sculptor.

 

The ‘operable envelope’ describes a sliding roof and wall which can transform the space seamlessly from indoor to outdoor. These mechanisms were designed and made by client and architect. All joinery, fittings, furniture and lighting were also designed and made by client and architect.
