This house is a weekender built on an island where there is no vehicular access and where the site was zoned a potential fire hazard. The house hugs the steep site with the main living and sleeping areas on one level and the lower level being guest accommodation and providing access to the track that links the house to the water. The house is dark painted timber so that it visually sits into the site and not visible from the water. Corner windows and doors allow the house to open to the views and sun.
The Dangar Island House was published in the book, New Natural Home, by Dominic Bradbury, Thames & Hudson, 2011.
