Project description:

This Standing Camp - krakani lumi (‘place of rest’), located in the Mount William National Park - wukalina is for the Aboriginal Land Council of Tasmania.
It serves as accommodation for a guided walk through the cultural landscape, from wukalina – Mt William, to larapuna - Eddystone Point.
The language of the project is derived from the siting, form and qualities of the traditional seasonal shelters of Tasmania’s first peoples. The project uses predominantly Tasmanian timber species, and rigorously deploys timber detailing, and finishing to achieve a consistent material palette throughout the project. Used as a story-telling device, the materiality of timber is used to support a spatial narrative of concealing and revealing a cultural interior, making architecture an agent to the Aboriginal community in the telling of their story.
