With decks adjoining every room, the sounds, smells and sights of the surrounding forest are always only a few steps away. When you live in the Skyhouse, only floor to ceiling walls of glass separate you from nature's ever changing panorama.
Birdlife abounds on Weedon Hill. From the tiny speckled Pardelotes that dig burrows in the ground to live in, to the majestic Sea Ospreys whos enormous nests are over a metre across. This you can all see.
At night the forests abounds with all manner of little furry critters and whooping owls. The local possums may well climb up the poles of the house and visit at your kitchen door (fruit only please!).
The building's unusual pole frame construction of hardwood poles and beams — it's sturdy 'inner skeleton' allows it to have external walls that seem to almost not be there. The curved roofs float above the walls appearing to be hardly attached at all. This results in a habitata that is light, whimsical, unexpected and truly organic.
