Branch­ing out

Australian House & Garden - - TOP 50 ROOMS -

25 This More­ton Bay hin­ter­land home is owned by tree-chang­ers, who re­quested a mod­est, sus­tain­able and invit­ing liv­ing space. Ar­chi­tect Shaun Lock­yer has de­liv­ered. His breezy pav­il­ion of­fers a strong visual con­nec­tion to the land­scape, is in­ti­mate in size (though not in height; the raked ceil­ing en­sures the space doesn’t feel con­stricted), and fea­tures tac­tile and ro­bust re­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als. The fire­place is the cen­tre of ac­tiv­ity on cold win­ter nights, but also acts as a room di­vider that sets the scale for the rest of the house. “We wanted our home to feel like it’s been here for­ever – and it does,” says owner Lee-Anne.
