Zigzag window openings resting alongside a deck, vanish to infinity in the landscape…The structure is a twisted off-center hardwood frame which allows window or door openings at every corner, bound together with a plywood beam at parapet height that provides stability to the framework. The cabin seeks to camouflage itself through the chameleon-like, or more appropriately goanna like, colour applied through a layered painting process.
