Carolina Bartram (ARUP London)
The raised house with enclosed sun-room stair is a typical response in Urada to heavy snowfall. We combine the sun-room and latent flexibility of the Queensland house, maximising use and enjoyment of the outdoors all year for artist and community exchanges. Indigenous artists and artists from a broad range of backgrounds can camp on site or occupy the sun-room veranda. The stair can be used for receptions and circulation through the gallery. A hybrid concrete and timber frame structure with passive climate control; the split roof brings north light into the atelier. The veranda provides southern sun and views.
