A Choreographed Journey from the Road through the Rainforest and onto a Beach

Given a plot of land in the Daintree Rainforest in Eastern Australia, m3 architecture knew that preserving the lush greenery was of utmost importance. As such, they built this residential home in a natural clearing as not to disturb the sensitive ecosystem. Black plastic cladding protects the house from the natural elements while also camouflaging its exterior against the rainforest canopy. Inside, a lighter palette and warm plywood panelling supports a soaring ceiling, angled toward the sky at a sharp pitch to draw attention to the tall south-facing windows. A thick, white rope runs throughout the property, leading visitors from the street and through the underbrush until they reach the Cape Tribulation beach.
