Sitting in the forest of Coopers Shoot, New South Wales is a contemporary home that blends in with its surroundings seamlessly. The compact fortress is a magnificent living space that respects the existing structures on the property, including the writer’s cabin designed by architect Ian McKay.
The pleasing clarity of structure and the expressive repetition of portal frames that create the skeleton of the studio design is immaculate. Harley Graham Architects executed their goal of creating a private refuge that’s concealed from the world. One of the main attractions of the cabin is its unmatched, captivating views of Australia’s beautiful forest. Winner of the Australian Institute of Architect’s Small Project Award for 2017, this modern studio located on a 20-acre property is a perfect viewing box for nature. However, if you’re looking to stay at the Hidden Studio, you’re only chance is befriending the home’s clients.
