Circular sculptured architecture for Barwon Heads

Barwon Heads in Victoria is undergoing a period of significant change. Heritage restrictions currently protect older fishing shacks whilst the remainder of the seaside town is progressively being redeveloped. The architecture now emerging is significantly contributing to the evolution of this small coastal township. The
interesting circular building form of this house emerged from the clients brief, which jokingly requested a planetarium as an inclusion. This led to the architects Jackson Clements Burrows exploring circular forms, resulting in a circular skylight over the first floor living areas and the overall shape of the house mirroring and immersing the structure into the Ti-tree dominated landscape. The house is wrapped in a skin of vertical cedar battens, which not only provide privacy and solar protection but also blur the division between the built form and the landscape.
