Located on the wind-swept island of Bruny, the D'Entrecasteaux House is designed to combat the harsh Tasmanian climate. The home is surrounded by a large stone wall. This outer shell blends the main house into the landscape while also offering protection from the strong coastal winds. Within the barrier is an arrival courtyard. Contrasting the intense local sun, the interior is finished in planks of black timber. A glazed facade washes the dark space with natural light and welcomes in views of Apollo Bay. The glass panels are also set with sliding doors, opening out to a large deck to further enjoy the seaside scenery.
