Tempo[ral] House

Temporal House brings a grounded concept of adaptable temporary living situations to Apollo Bay.
Sitting lightly in the site at the base of Marinners Lookout, its spatial organisation follows the contours of the gentle slope while using suggestions of linear circulation to bring movement within the homes interpretable program. Careful consideration of how permanent and temporary use sits amongst the buildings structural frame dictates the materiality of the homes built form and the way which thresholds form between levels of shared and private space. The project as a whole bringings a sympathetic relationship to the landscape and encourages exploration of how the outside landscape is used.

Temporal House - Floor / Landscape Plan

Temporal House explores ideas around adaptable circulation and how movement and interaction throughout the home can influence the program of space. A central linear pattern breaks off into areas of interpretable space that can accomodate a variety of potential uses to suit the needs of transient populations that might find themselves staying in the home. Providing areas for work, leisure, entertaining, dining and more.
The home sits on a gentle slope that leads towards a seasonal water course, with access between the building and its surrounding landscape becoming seamless as occupants move from the elevated spaces into curated spaces of indigenous vegetation amongst outdoor living.

Temporal House - Detail Axonometric

The way in which the interpretable spaces of Temporal House are organised and suggested by the way materiality and structure come together. With refinement in the way that surfaces and spaces intersect, unique moments and discoveries come as the occupants move throughout the circulation of the building that influences the way they use the home.

Temporal House - Interior Panormaic Perspective

Inside Temporal House spanning open spaces are suggested by the grid of the structural portal frame that lifts the home from the earth. While the flowing circulation builds relationships of program to areas of the home, its adaptability brings an understanding of relatiohsips between private and shared space to the way individuals live. Daily rituals and the way occupants go about their lives are integrated into the way the home is configured and the interactions that occur between each resident and what they use an area of the house for. Duration, intensity and frequency of use influence the outcome of how program and movement occur in Temporal House and explore the concept of the project.
