Site Workshop photos

Documentation of the Site Workshop on the 8th & 9th of December.

DAY 1:

DAY 2: (Rained out)

What we did:
  • The 1:50 card model was used to orient the project in reference to the site context.
  • The location and height of the perimeter wall was traced out at 1:1 on the site using garden stakes, pine dowels and orange string.
  • The rooms were then also drawn out at 1:1 using orange spray paint.
How it informed the design:
  • Tracing out the height of the wall at 1:1, I was mildly shocked by the height of the wall, but also given more confidence and conviction in the appropriateness of this maneuver on this site.
  • The scale of the plans has since been revised after spraying out the rooms, resulting shift in the overall radius of the hexagon from 13m to 14m.
  • The orientation and location of the house has been revised in response to the views from the site, particularly out toward the fields to the East.
Thanks heaps to everyone for pitching in - especially Bianca and Scott!
