kiln house 1

2005

This retreat house in the Ovens valley is designed from two old tobacco kilns. A linear strip of new construction links the kilns, creating a range of outdoor and indoor spaces from which to experience the dramatic valley and mountain views that the site offers.

The simple palette of the new areas provides a counterpoint to the rich, textured materials of the existing kilns.
