Equipped with a series of modular features, the Balnarring Retreat isn't defined by function. Each of the plywood walls contain folding components — a pull down bed, desk, and book shelves — transforming the space into an area for entertaining, meditating, yoga, or catching up on work. A north-facing glazed wall saturates the interior with nature, flooding the living room with natural light and views of the bordering pond. Created as a place to slow down from hectic urban living, the space is intentionally lo-fi, allowing the scenic surroundings to be your entertainment.
