7 GENERATIONS WALKING LODGE
DATE: 2019 | LOCATION: Flinders Island, TAS
7 Generations Walking Lodge is situated in Loccota, on the western side of Flinders Island, Tasmania.
The small beachside town is surrounded by beautiful national parks, walking tracks and beaches, with this particular site offering a heightened vantage point over the bay with sweeping views of the islands off the coast.
The concept for the proposal initiated from the paper nautilus shell, an extremely rare and beautiful shell found on Flinders Island beaches.
Also references NNW to S compass coordinates and relating viewpoints to neighbouring islands, as well as Flinders Islands indigenous history. The resulting form, materiality and tectonic of the proposal embraces the unique context, climate and history of Flinders Island, whilst functional planning invites guests to communicate, learn and rest in an intimate, nature-centric environment.
