Contemporist Architecture News landed in my inbox and look what opened up!  A beautiful siting of a building in my much missed home landscape, Australia.

 A very site responsive design by Bark Architects in Queensland Australia – and this is their office!

I do spot a bike in one of the photos so it seems that these guys are not located too far in the bush that they can not reach civilisation.

Notice how they were able to retain the Eucalypt tree in front of the building? Their footing is designed to ensure the tree’s root system was not adversely affected by the building whilst also creating a floating effect – and what a view!

This design has made me very home sick – an immediate emotional response was created for me by this design – which is a strong indication that they have managed to retained the landscape character of this site.
