This contemporary camping hut is a 2007 venture by Casey Brown Architecture that is located in the remote location of Mudgee, New South Whales, Australia.
The small construction can give shelter and breathtaking views for up to 2 men and women and is equipped with a rain water collection tank, kitchen, residing location, and sleeping loft.
Permanent Camping Construction by Casey Brown Architecture:
“Located on a remote pristine mountain on a sheep station in central western NSW, this structure was the realisation of a dream for the consumer.
Sited at the edge of a ridge surrounded by large granite boulders and ancient dead trees, the tower has panoramic views for hundreds of miles to the horizon.
Conceived as a retreat for 1 or 2 men and women, the building has a minimal 3x3m footprint delivering shelter.
The structure is a 2 storey copper clad tower the sides open up on the ground degree to supply wide verandahs to the north, east and western elevations.
To the south a water tank and winches are found to operate the moveable verandah roofs.
When not in use, these roofs close down to completely enclose the timber and glass interior defending it from the factors in distinct bush fires.
Internally, the structure is superbly crafted from recycled ironbark providing a sleeping loft and tiny kitchen with a Rais wood fired slow combustion stove.
Water is collected on the roof and a separate WC, also in copper clad hardwood, is found a short walk to the west.
The framework is heavily insulated from both cold winds and searing daytime temperatures with multi layered walls all ventilated leading and bottom making it possible for totally free air motion.
Due to the isolated nature of the building web site, the building was entirely prefabricated by the builder Jeffery Broadfield in Sydney then transported to web site and erected.”
