Sunrise Studio was commissioned by the new owners of the Quadropod House to complement the house design and to provide a self-contained home for their daughter and grandson.

Bark Architects located the studio lower on the land for privacy and seclusion and positioned the outdoor yoga deck, living and main bedroom to maximise the northeast aspect and ocean views for morning meditation. Transparency throughout the building connects to the outdoors and the bushland setting, while the kitchen, second bedroom and bathroom engage with the natural bushland setting. Key design strategies include modular construction, retention of all existing trees, connection to all spaces through a central 'green' lightwell and roof modules orientated to allow for maximum northern light to enter the spaces
