Event Information




Event description


Located on the northern end of the Sunshine Coast, set in wallum woodland near Lake Weyba, the house is three single story blocks with steep skillion roofs opening northwards. A pavilion for living, one a wash house and the third for sleeping. The pavilions are lighter towards the top and folded steel cladding wraps around the base.

A wonderful house of extraordinary design, Gabriel and Elizabeth Poole collaborated to create a place which is empathetic of both the inhabitants and the environment in which the house sits.

With considered sustainable design and high functionality, this home speaks of a specific architectural style, of light, and of openness to the unique surrounding landscape.

‘I am involved in the romance of design — practical and functional but with the potential for an emotional connection. A good building system can help you into a lovely environment and create a space where the soul can play,’ Gabriel Poole.

NOTE: No wheelchair access.
