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.
