Designed by Redbox Architects as a series of sleeping cabins with glass linkways, the bach is built around a central entertaining space and outdoor deck opening toward the wetland and gardens.

Vulcan Cladding in Sioo:x coating provides a natural, fresh contrast to the Vulcan Screening in Protector - Teak for the entry and garage (including a hidden timber garage door).

This material palette enhances this cabin-esque feel by using weathered timber shiplap horizontally on the sleeping cabins, vertically on the central cabin, with a contrasting façade wrapping the utility spaces.

The timber rain screen system in Vulcan Screening complements the weathered-look cladding, with large entry and carport gates of the same materials - allowing the front of the bach to be seamlessly closed off, providing total privacy.
