pirates bay house [not the torrents site?]

Designed by Stuart Tanner Architects, the Pirates Bay House is a ‘small coastal retreat near Eaglehawk Neck on Tasmania’s Tasman Peninsular. It has been designed primarily as an informal, intermittent use building. The clients requested a contemporary, steel framed building that made best use of an awkward site and brought the coastal aspect of its location into the living spaces‘.

The [linear] house acts as a cantilever, pushing out from the hillside towards the water [the building barely touches the ground…siiick], in an attempt to ‘pay homage to the eucalypt forest that fringes the site‘.
