House for Boats

HOUSE FOR BOATS | POTTSVILLE, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA | Status: Complete | Builder: Steve Kerr Homes | Photography: William Ellyett & Jonathan Wood

A pavilion set within the remnant garden of a generous property in a sleepy beach settlement. Whilst the boat house's main purpose is to store marine equipment, it also provides a formal edge to a sprawling lawn, offers a place to cook and inhabit by the creek, and a cubby house for three young boys. The pavilion represents a departure from the everyday - a place of adventure, journey, retreat and mystery.
